What's the matter daddy come on save my soul
Drop a little sugar in my bowl
I ain't fooling
Drop some sugar in my bowl
You've been acting strangely I've been told
Move me daddy

I want some sugar in my bowl
I want some steam on my clothes
Maybe I can fix things up so they'll go
What's the matter daddy come on save my soul
Drop some sugar in my bowl
I ain't fooling
Drop some sugar in my bowl

Sugar in my bowl yeah yeah yeah
Some sweetness down in my soul
You've been acting strangely I've been told
Move me daddy
I want some sugar in my bowl
I want some steam on my clothes
Maybe I can fix things up so they'll go
What's the matter daddy
Come on save my soul

Drop some sugar in my bowl
I ain't fooling
Drop some sugar yeah yeah in my bowl
