Candy
Doja Cat Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I can name a couple ways, baby, this shit might go
You just might forget that this was what you're getting high for
Men that like to do the things to remain that guy who
Need someone who's sweet and not gon' shoot to make that high note

And it's such a typical thing
Running over billion men who
Only deal with difficult things
You gon' need a billion hands, ooh

She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real cherry, know that it ain't real cherry
She's just like candy (candy), she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real, know that it ain't real

I can be your sugar when you're fiendin' for that sweet spot
Put me in your mouth, baby, and eat it 'til your teeth rot
I can be your cherry, apple, pecan, or your key lime
Baby, I got everything and so much more than she's got

And it's such a typical thing
Running over billion men who
Only deal with difficult things
You gon' need a billion hands, ooh

She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real cherry, know that it ain't real cherry
She's just like candy (candy), she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real, know that it ain't real
She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real cherry, know that it ain't real cherry
She's just like candy (candy), she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real, know that it ain't real

Sugar coated, lies unfolded
You still lick the wrapper
It's addictive, you know this
But you still lick the wrapper
Sugar coated, lies unfolded
You still lick the wrapper
It's addictive, you know this
But you still lick the wrapper

She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real cherry, know that it ain't real cherry
She's just like candy (candy), she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real, know that it ain't real
She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real cherry, know that it ain't real cherry




She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real, know that it ain't real

Overall Meaning

In "Candy," Doja Cat sings about a woman who is compared to candy - sweet and addictive, but ultimately not genuine. The song speaks about the futility of chasing after someone who appears to be ideal but is not dependable. She describes the potential consequences of being caught up in a relationship with someone who seems perfect but is not real, even extending the idea to sexuality, describing herself as a sugar substitute that can satisfy someone's cravings.


The lyrics also touch on the idea of men who only deal with difficult situations or those who desire a partner who is consistently sweet and easygoing. Doja Cat warns that chasing after someone who can always cater to their needs may lead to disappointment and unfulfillment. The chorus, which repeats "She's just like candy, she's so sweet, but you know that it ain't real," reinforces the theme of the song and the idea that one must be cautious of appearances.


Overall, "Candy" is a catchy and light-hearted song with a deeper message about the dangers of being caught up in illusions and pursuing what appears to be ideal without examining the underlying reality.

[LYRICS]
I can name a couple ways, baby, this shit might go
You just might forget that this was what you're gettin' hyped for
Late at night, do the things to him, mean that guy who
Need someone who's sweet enough, who'll shoot to make that high note
And it's such a typical thing
Runnin' over a billion men, ooh
Runnin' through a difficult place
You gon' meet a billion hands, ooh
She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real cherry
Know that it ain't real cherry
She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real
Know that it ain't real
I can be your sugar when you're fiendin' for that sweet spot
Put me in your mouth, baby, and eat it 'til your teeth rot
I can be your cherry, apple, pecan, or your key lime
Baby, I got everything and so much more than she's got
And it's such a typical thing
Runnin' over a billion men, ooh
Runnin' through a difficult place
You gon' meet a billion hands, ooh
She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real cherry
Know that it ain't real cherry
She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real
Know that it ain't real
She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real cherry
Know that it ain't real cherry
She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real
Know that it ain't real
Sugar coated, lies unfolded
You still lick the wrapper
It's addictive, you know this
But you still lick the wrapper
Sugar coated, lies unfolded
You still lick the wrapper
It's addictive, you know this
But you still lick the wrapper
She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real cherry
Know that it ain't real cherry
She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real
Know that it ain't real
She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real cherry
Know that it ain't real cherry
She's just like candy, she's so sweet
But you know that it ain't real
Know that it ain't real
