You've got enough sugar
To start a sugarcane mill
And when you hold me baby
I'm thinking oh a lifetime deal
Little boy how do you say
What you say when you say it
It sounds so good I just got to ok it

(You're sweet baby)
You're a sweet man
(You're sweet baby)

When you kiss me
I have to give on in
But I tried hard not to let it show
But then you hold on and you kiss me again
Hold it right there I got to have you I swear
You can love me forever
I'm gonna hold on to your hand
You sweet sweet man
Take care, take care, take care of my heart please
Baby take care of all my needs
I'm going to hold on to your hand
Cause baby you're a sweet man

(Oh sweet man)
You're a sweet man)
(Sweet your my sweet sugar for my honey)
(Sweet sweet baby sugar sugar honey)
(You're a sweet man)
(You're a sweet man)
(Sweet your my sweet sugar for my honey)
(You're sweet sweet man)
(Sweet sweet baby sugar sugar honey)
