"Candy" is a song by funk group Cameo, released as the second single from their 1986 album Word Up!. It reached number twenty-one on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the R&B charts in 1987 in the U. S. The song has been featured in the 2004 video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and can be heard on the Bounce FM radio station in the game. The song features a solo by legendary saxophonist Michael Brecker. The music video, shot on film, was directed by Zbigniew Rybczyński.

It's like candy, I can feel it when you walk
Even when you talk it takes over me
You're so dandy, I wanna know
Can you feel it too just like I do

This stuff is starting now, It's the same feeling
I always seem to get around you
There's no mistaking, I'm clearly taken
By the simple mere thought of you, oh

This stuff is starting now
This stuff is starting now
This stuff is starting now

My eyes roll in my head, I toss and turn in my bed
In the morning when I think about you, yes I do
Simply put, you're the reason why
Even though I'm real shy, real shy

I attempt to look my best for you
Indeed I do, just for you
'Cause you affect me, fascinate me
I thank heaven for the things that you do

It's like candy
You sure are sweet, sweet!
You're so dandy
You're taking my appetite, but it's all right

(It's like candy)
Ooh, vanilla! Oh, chocolate!
You look real nice, wrapped up tight
(You're so dandy)
You're giving me a heart attack
It's the kind I like

It's like candy
You're so dandy

You're like a brand new feeling
In a special way, a surprise package
On a bright clear sunny day
(You're so dandy)
And wrapped up tight, so good, so good

Strawberry! Raspberry! All those good thangs
Violets and gumdrops, that's what you're saying to me, oh
Sweet candy, candy
(It's like candy)
Sure seems like good candy to me, oh baby, oh baby

You're so dandy
It's like candy
You're so dandy
You're sweet

It's like candy
You're so dandy

Cameo

Cameo is an American soul-influenced funk group that formed in the early 1970s. Cameo was initially a 13-member group known as the New York City Players; this name was later changed to Cameo to avoid a lawsuit from Ohio Players,[citation needed] another group from that era. Since then, Cameo has recorded several hit records. As of 2009, some of the original members continue to perform together, while two others were hired by the hip hop group Outkast. Their influences include Rick James, Parliament-Funkadelic, contemporary funk bands like the Bar-Kays, Earth, Wind & Fire, Ohio Players, The Isley Brothers etc. and singers like Marvin Gaye, Billy Paul, Prince, Isaac Hayes, Stevie Wonder and Bootsy Collins. more »
