Song Meaning
Verse 1
Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields
Sold in a market down in New Orleans
Scarred old slaver knows he's doing alright
Hear him whip the women just around midnight
Verse 2
[Repeat: 2x]
Brown sugar how come you taste so good?
Brown sugar just like a young girl should
Verse 3
Drums beating, cold English blood runs hot
Lady of the house wonderin' where it's gonna stop
House boy knows that he's doing alright
You should a heard him just around midnight
Verse 4
[Repeat: 2X]
Brown sugar how come you taste so good, now?
Brown sugar just like a young girl should
Verse 5
I bet your mama was a tent show queen
And all here boyfriends were sweet sixteen
I'm no schoolboy but I know what I like
You shoulda heard me just around midnight
Verse 6
Brown sugar how come you taste so good,
Brown sugar just like a young girl should
Verse 7
What do we say New York we say yeah, yeah, yeah, woo
How come you... How come you taste so good?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, woo
Just like a... Just like a black girl should
Yeah, yeah, yeah, woo
