The Candy Kid (From The Mission On The Bowery)

The Cowsills


Feelin' so depressed
I wasn't up to getting dressed
It was a Saturday night
And I decided against a party.

There was Christmas in the air
And you could feel it everywhere
And it kinda brought me down
'Cause I felt I just wasn't ready.

I headed on down
To the center of town
Where folks were shopping around
And all the colored lights were pretty.

And suddenly I could hear
So loud and so clear
Such beautiful music
And the rhythm was happy.

It was the Candy Kid
From the Mission on the Bowery
A hobo Santa working
For the Salvation Army.

Come please
Drop a nickel in the kettle
The Candy Kid will dance
Your troubles away
Your troubles away

Watching him move
People couldn't help but groove
And they were clapping their hands
And singing c'mon Candy

While we were caught in this glow
It might have started to snow
I don't know I don't know
My happy heart was diggin' Candy

It was the Candy Kid
From the Mission on the Bowery
Just a hobo Santa working
For the Salvation Army.

Come please
Drop a nickel in the kettle
The Candy Kid will dance
Your troubles away
Your troubles away
