Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields
Sold in a market down in New Orleans
Scarred old slaver know he's doing alright
Hear him whip the women ju st about midnight
Brow n sugar, ho w com e you taste so good, now
Brow n sugar, jus t like a you ng girl should, wooo!
Drums are beating cold, English blood runs hot
Lady of the house wonderin' where it's gonna stop
Houseboy knows that he's doing alright
You shoulda heard him just around midnight
Oohh come on brown sugar, how come you taste so good babe
Aaah brown sugar just like a black girl should
Aa-I bet your mama was a tent show queen
And all her boyfriends were sweet sixteen
I'm no schoolboy but I know what I like
You shoulda heard me just around midnight
I said yeah yeah yeah wooo! How come, how come you taste so good?
I said yeah yeah yeah wooo! Just like a, just like a black girl should
Yeah yeah yeah wooo!
