Beth Orton

Beth Orton - Brown Sugar

rate me

(Duet with Ryan Adams / Rolling Stones Cover)

Gold Coast slaveship bound for cotton fields

Sold in a market down in New Orleans

Scarred old slaver know he's doin' alright

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 beating, cold English blood runs hot

Lady of the house wond'rin where it's gonna stop

House boy knows that he's doin' alright

You should a 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 taste 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 me just around midnight

Brown sugar, how come you taste so good

Brown sugar, just like a young girl should

I said yeah, I said yeah, I said yeah, I said oh
