Gold Coast slave ship bound for cotton fields
Sold in the market down in New Orleans
Skydog slaver knows he's doin' all right
Hear him whip the women just around midnight

Brown Sugar, how come you taste so good
Brown Sugar, just like a young girl should

Drums beatin' cold, English blood runs hot
Lady of the house wonderin' when it's gonna stop
House boy knows that he's doin' all right
You should have heard him just around midnight

Brown Sugar, how come you taste so good
Brown Sugar, just like a young girl should

Brown Sugar, how come you dance so good
Brown Sugar, just like a black girl should

I bet your mama was a tent show queen,
And all her boyfriends were sweet sixteen
I'm no school boy but I know what I like
You should have heard them just around midnight

Brown Sugar, how come you taste so good
Brown Sugar, just like a black girl should

I said, yeah, yeah, yeah, wooo!
How come you, how come you dance so good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, wooo!
Just like a, just like a black girl should
Yeah, yeah, yeah, wooo!

Randy Bachman does a great radio show here in Canada every Saturday evening, (replayed late weekday nights) called "Vinyl Tap." He played this the other night, remarking that the lyrics referenced the slave trade in the old American South.I came here to have a look.

Sure enough. This song definitely deserves a closer listen!

Don't really need to hear it here, but it sure would be interesting to see the reaction.

I think its a 9 anyway.  The right segue would make it work, even here.

that makes up for the 523,568 times I've heard this on radio stations the past 39 years...

Ugh.
