about

Sugar by Stanley Turrentine and Ted Daryll -arranged by Elaine Dame and Dennis Luxion

lyrics

Sweet sugar drips from his sweet lips, the sugar is mine
You bet your life a sweet man like this would be hard to find

He picks me up, he makes me feel fine, he makes me think twice bout’ paradise
Like sugar and spice and everything nice, he’s sugar to me

Sweet sounds of joy come into my ear, when my sugar is near
He sounds so sweet, my heart skips a beat when my sugars near

He picks me up, he makes me feel fine, he makes me think twice bout’ paradise
Like sugar and spice and everything nice, he's sugar to me
