About Candyman

"Candyman" is a song written and produced by British rock band Siouxsie and the Banshees. It was released as the second single from their seventh studio album, Tinderbox. The song is about child abuse. Musically, it is a guitar-based number with distinctive use of arpeggios by John Valentine Carruthers. Melody Maker hailed the single upon its release, saying it was "thrilling". [...] "Big and brash and clashing, its many parts combine to form one spirited, unpredictable yet wholly co-ordinated outburst while Siouxsie's voice, in confident control, bounces up and down and around the repeating motifs, and unexpected twist of arrangements. ""Candyman" became Siouxsie and the Banshees' 13th top 40 hit, peaking at number 34 in the UK Singles Chart.

Sickly sweet, his poison seeks 
For the young ones who don't understand 
The danger in his hands 
With a jaundiced wink see his cunning slink 
Oh trust in me my pretty one 
Come walk with me my helpless one 
Candyman 

Syrup lies upon your tongue
Ge latine saliva spills
The flash of a guillotine a smile 

Candyman - oh candyman 
No pity for him, their misery screams
Unspeakable things 

A cool missile, yes it's in his smile
With open arms to welcome you
Beware the masked pretender
He always lies, this candyman
Those lips conspire in treachery
To strike in cloak and dagger, see! 

Candyman - oh candyman 
And all the children, he warns ''don't tell,''
Those threats are sold
With their guilt and shame they think they're to blane
For candyman - oh candyman
