Lyrics

Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields
Sold in the market down in New Orleans
Scarred old slaver knows he's doing alright
Hear him whip the women just around midnight

[Chorus]
Brown sugar how come you taste so good
Brown sugar just like a young girl should- ah hum oh..
Woo!

[Verse 2]
Drums beating, cold English blood runs hot
Lady of the house wonderin' when it's gonna stop
House boy knows that he's doing alright
You shoulda heard him just around midnight

[Chorus]
Brown sugar how come you taste so good
Brown sugar just like a young girl should- ah hum oh..
Woo!

[Bridge]
Ah, get down on brown, brown sugar, how come you taste so good?
Ah, get down, get down brown sugar, just like a young girl should

[Verse 3]
Ah I bet your mama was a tent show queen
And all her boyfriends were sweet sixteen
I'm no schoolboy but I know what I like
You shoulda heard me just around midnight

[Chorus]
Brown sugar how come you taste so good
Ah, come down brown sugar, just like a young girl should
Ah, get down, get down brown sugar, how come you taste so good
Ah get down little brown, brown sugar, move it all down [?]
Ah get down little brown, brown sugar [?]
Ah get down on your knees brown sugar
How come, how come
Woo!
How come, down, down, down, down
Woo!
How come you taste so good, babe
Ah get down [?]
Down to the ground, babe
How come you taste so good
[Outro]
I said 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!
