Marvin Sease - "Candy Licker"

Candy Licker is Marvin Sease's trademark song and it is definitely, definitely a classic.  So many artists have copied him and referred to candy licker in a countless number of songs over the years - solid proof that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  Not only is this song a classic, it kind of revolutionized the whole southern soul world.  The x-rated lyrics stirred up a lot of controversy but "Candy Licker" withstood the test of time.  Marvin created so much fantastic music in his lifetime but words can't really describe this song that was so much a part of who Marvin Sease was.  It will go down in history.

I just want to be, eight days a week, your candy licker, girl.
