This is an excerpt from the movie Willy Wonka.

Who can take a sunrise
Sprinkle it with dew
Cover it with chocolate and a miracle or two
The Candy Man
Oh, the Candy Man can
The Candy Man can
‘Cause he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good

Who can take a rainbow
Wrap it in a sigh
Soak it in the sun and make a groovy lemon pie
The Candy Man
The Candy Man can
The Candy Man can
‘Cause he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good

The Candy Man makes everything he bakes
Satisfying and delicious
Now you talk about your childhood wishes
You can even eat the dishes

Oh, who can take tomorrow
Dip it in a dream
Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream
The Candy Man
Oh, the Candy Man can
The Candy Man can
‘Cause he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good

The Candy Man makes everything he bakes
Satisfying and delicious
Talk about your childhood wishes
You can even eat the dishes
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Who can take tomorrow
Dip it in a dream
Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream

The Candy Man
The Candy Man can
The Candy Man can
‘Cause he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good

Yes, the Candy Man can
‘Cause he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good
A-Candy Man, a-Candy Man, a-Candy Man
A-Candy Man, a-Candy Man, a-Candy Man
A-Candy Man, a-Candy Man, a-Candy Man

Have a sweet day!
