The Lyrics

This is a tribute song to fellow chub comic and hero of mine John Candy. This isn't going to be like "The Night Laura's Daddy Died" i promise.
Candy was a star
And he came from Ontario
Back in good old Canada
Back in the fun old days
In the heat of a summer night
In the land of the bacon.
When the great John Candy died.
And we talk about it.
When my brother told me
That poor John Candy had just died.
And he heard it on the radio
And saw it on the news.
I heard my brother cry
I heard him pray the night John Candy died.
Boy what a sad thing the people heard
boy what a sad thing the people heard
Yes indeed
And the sound of silence rang
Throughout every city sky.
Till my brother and his mates
Had told me it was no lie.
There was crying in the streets
And the sound of a bass beat.
And I asked someone who said
"That John Candy now is dead"
I heard my brother cry
I heard him pray the night John Candy died
Boy what a sad thing the people heard
Boy what a sad thing the people heard
Yes indeed
And then thehere was no sound at all
But the clock upon the wall
Tick tock, tick tock
And then the door burst open wide
And my daddy stepped inside
And he cheered my brother up
And he brushed his tears away
I heard my brother cry
I heard him pray the night John Candy died
Boy what a sad night the people saw
Boy what a sad night the people saw
Yes indeed
The night John Candy died
Na-na na, na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na
The Night John Candy died
Boy it was really really sad
Boy it was really really sad
R.I.P
The Night John Candy died
Na-na na, na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na
The Night John Candy died
Boy what a sad night it really was
Boy what a sad night it really was
R.I.P
The Night John Candy died
Na-na na, na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na
The Night John Candy died
Boy what a sad night the people heard
Boy what a sad night the people heard.

You have really showed that you care about me lots Barry. You've got a heart and girth as big as mine. You're a hero. And if you see Tom Hanks- tell him that he owes me 50 bucks.

This parody appears to be the work of Cisum Rd spelled backwards. Editors, please check the IP address and/or delete if necessary.

You're probably right. And he's clearly talking to himself, from the above comments.
