Sugar Baby

I got my back to the sun 'cause the light is too intense

I can see what everybody in the world is up against

You can't turn back - you can't come back, sometimes we push too far

One day you'll open up your eyes and you'll see where we are

.

Sugar Baby get on down the road

You ain't got no brains, no how

You went years without me

Might as well keep going now

.

Some of these bootleggers, they make pretty good stuff

Plenty of places to hide things here if you wanna hide 'em bad enough

I'm staying with Aunt Sally, but you know, she's not really my aunt

Some of these memories you can learn to live with and some of them you can't

.

Sugar Baby get on down the line

You ain't got no brains, no how

You went years without me

You might as well keep going now

.

The ladies down in Darktown, they're doing the Darktown Strut

You always got to be prepared but you never know for what

There ain't no limit to the amount of trouble women bring

Love is pleasing, love is teasing, love's not an evil thing

.

Sugar Baby, get on down the road

You ain't got no brains, no how

You went years without me

You might as well keep going now

.

Every moment of existence seems like some dirty trick

Happiness can come suddenly and leave just as quick

Any minute of the day the bubble could burst

Try to make things better for someone, sometimes,

you just end up making it a thousand times worse

.

Sugar Baby, get on down the road

You ain't got no brains no how

You went years without me

Might as well keep going now

.

Your charms have broken many a heart and mine is surely one

You got a way of tearing a world apart, love, see what you done

Just as sure as we're living, just as sure as you're born

Look up, look up - seek your Maker - 'fore Gabriel blows his horn

.

Sugar Baby, get on down the line

You ain't got no sense, no how

You went years without me

Might as well keep going now

.
