The Lyrics

A lot of parodies about John Candy lately. Come on, man, if you were a true fan, you would have thought of this before I did.
Who can make a movie?
(Who can make a movie?)
With a funny crew?
(With a funny crew?)
Have you laugh your fanny off
about an hour or two?

John Candy, man.
(John Candy, man.)
Whoa, John Candy can, man.
(John Candy can, man.)

John Candy can, man
'cause he made his films with love
and made it all so good.
(Made it all so good.)

Whoa, who can take Bill Murray?
(Who can take Bill Murray?)
Sew on all his Stripes?
(Sew on all his Stripes?)
Fly the "Spaceballs" camper
with Daphne Zuniga's big gripes?

John Candy, man.
(John Candy, man.)
Whoa, John Candy can, man.
(John Candy can, man.)

John Candy can, man
'cause he made his films with love
and made it all so good.
(Made it all so good.)

(John Candy can make
films that don't feel fake!
They're satisfying and big-heartin'!)

Talk about a film he's startin'!
Even brought smile to Steve Martin!

Whoa, planes, trains, au-to-mo-biles!
(Planes, trains, au-to-mo-biles!)
That film was a scream!
(That film was a scream!)
Got home for Thanksgiving
with a convoluted scheme!

John Candy, man.
(John Candy, man.)
Whoa, John Candy can, man.
(John Candy can, man.)

John Candy can, man
'cause he made his films with love
and made it all so good.
(Made it all so good.)

(John Candy can make
films that don't feel fake!
Some were funny, some were serious!)

"Uncle Buck" was deleterious
but others, laugh 'til you're "Delirious!"

Whoa, who could watch the Cubbies?
(Who could watch the Cubbies?)
Broadcasting a dream?
(Broadcasting a dream?)
The "Rookie of the Year" became
the crop with all the cream!

John Candy, man.
(John Candy, man.)
Whoa, John Candy can, man.
(John Candy can, man.)

John Candy can, man
'cause he made his films with love
and made it all so good.
(Made it all so good.)

Yes, John Candy can, man
'cause he made his films with love
and made it all so good.
(Made it all so good.)

John Candy, man!
John Candy, man!
John Candy, man!
(Made it all so good.)

John Candy, man!
John Candy, man!
John Candy, man!
(Made it all so good.)
(repeat 'til fade)

Yep. I've been there too. Your JC tribute is simply lovely. PS: Farfigtuben.

You write John Candoy tributes better than John Candy. Or even "John Candy".
