My friends, they all told me,
Man, there’s something gonna change your life.
My friends, they all told me,
Man, there’s something gonna change your life.
Gotta have that brown sugar.
Man it’s just gonna change my life.
Man, I gotta have that brown sugar.
Man, it’s just gonna make me feel so right.

There’s something make me feel good,
And it’s gonna change my life.
There’s something make me feel good,
And it’s gonna change my life.
I gotta have some of that brown sugar,
Gotta try it before I die.

Man it sure do save me
When there’s no place left for me.
Man it sure do save me
When there’s no place left for me.
Gotta have some of that brown sugar
As long as that’s gonna set me free.

Man, there’s somethin’ make me feel good
And it’s gonna change my life.
Man, there’s somethin’ make me feel good
And it’s gonna change my life.
I gotta have some of that brown sugar,
Gotta try it before I die.
