Brown Sugar
The Rolling Stones Lyrics


Gold Coast slave ship bound for cotton fields
Sold in the market down in New Orleans
Scarred old 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, now?
Brown sugar, just like a young girl should (yeah)

Brown sugar, how come you dance so good, babe?
Brown sugar, just like a black girl should, yeah

And 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, baby?
Brown sugar, just like a young girl should, yeah

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

The rythm guitar on this song is absolutely genius. The syncopation is insane, I just love it :)

What's syncopation?

LOVE LOVE LOVE the opening. I can listen to it forever. THIS is rock’n’roll.

Quite simply one of three or four greatest riffs in rock history....and slightly outta tune makes it even more raw and cool.
