The Lyrics

This follows the same pattern as the OS and it's first revision, hence the semi-unchanged chorus line.
Goodbye Golden Star
We'll forever cherish the joy
You brought from entertaining us
Since you were just a boy
Serving for the country
How they put you through so much pain
They battered and they bullied you
Like a childish schoolyard game

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Ever dancing to the music
When the rain set in
And for sure we'll never forget
Our beloved Candy Man
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever can

With four devoted friends
You sang and danced your way through life
They saw you through all of your toughest times
And helped you through the strife
Still, the years went by
And as your life progressed
Everyone could clearly see
All the talent that you possessed

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Ever dancing to the music
When the rain set in
And for sure we'll never forget
Our beloved Candy Man
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever can

Goodbye Golden Star
Though you had to answer your call
Your timeless fame will stay with us
You truly did it all

Goodbye Golden Star
From the people who loved everything you did
We saw you become the star you'll always be
From that precious talented young kid

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Ever dancing to the music
When the rain set in
And for sure we'll never forget
Our beloved Candy Man
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever can
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever can

I remember that the IRS wanted to dig up Sammy's grave and take the gold rings from his cold, dead fingers to settle a tax claim. Anyone remember his recording of "Don't Blame The Children"?

I was wondering when someone was going to figure out who this was about!
