The Lyrics

Who can take his paycheck, blow it at the bar
Slam a bunch of whiskey, and then smash up his car
The Candy-ass, oh the Candy-ass can
The Candy-ass can 'cause it takes a real man to take his money on home

Who takes off all weekend, covers it with lies
Ignoring his own children and he makes his woman cry
The Candy-ass, the Candy-ass can
The Candy-ass can 'cause it takes a real man to raise a fam-i-ly

Might be 'fraid of snakes, and bugs give you the shakes, not what makes a guy a sissy
You can act all prim and prissy, long as you know how to kiss me

Who'll be gone tomorrow, off to chase a dream
Who's 'fraid of commitment and responsibility
The Candy-ass, oh the Candy-ass can
The Candy-ass can 'cause it takes real man to be so good to me

Might be 'fraid of snakes, and bugs give you the shakes, not what makes a guy a sissy
You can act all prim and prissy, long as you know how to kiss me

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Who will run tomorrow, away from any fight
Has a special "blankie" and uses a nightlight
The Candy-ass, the Candy-ass can
The Candy-ass can 'cause it takes a real man to fight for what is right
Yes, the Candy-ass can 'cause it takes a real man to fight with all his might
a-Candy-ass, a-Candy-ass, a-Candy-ass
Candy-ass, a-Candy-ass, a-Candy-ass
Candy-ass, a-Candy-ass, a-Candy-ass
