v1 Frankie was a woman, everybody knows,
   She spent about a hundred dollars on Albert's suit of clothes,
   What can you do when your candy man is gone?

ch (He give me) candy in the morning, candy 'most every night,
   Ain't nobody else's candy can do that job alright,
   What can you do when your candy man is gone?

standard Frankie's Blues / Frankie & Albert / Frankie & Johnny verses with
third line of verse and chorus as above: see the recording for rest of lyrics
and tune.
