"Brown Sugar" as written by Michael D'angelo Archer and Ali Shaheed Jones-muhammad....
Let me tell you 'bout this girl, maybe I shouldn't
I met her in Philly and her name was Brown Sugar
See, we be making love constantly
That's why my eyes are a shade blood burgundy

The way that we kiss is unlike any other way
That I be kissin' when I'm kissin' what I'm missin'
Won't you listen?

Brown Sugar babe, I gets high off your love
I don't know how to behave

I want some of your Brown Sugar, ooh ooh

Oh sugar when you're close to me
You love me right down to my knees
And whenever you let me hit it
Sweet like the honey when it comes to me
Skin is caramel with those cocoa eyes
Even got a big sister by the name of Chocolate Thai

Brown Sugar babe, I gets high off your love
I don't know how to behave

I want some of your Brown Sugar, ooh ooh

Now that'd be how the story goes
Brown Sugar got me open, now I want some more
Always down for a menage-a-troi
But I think I'm a hit it solo
Hope my niggas don't mind

Stick out my tongue and I'm bout
Ready to hit this pretty gritty
Bitty with persistence
Yo, I don't think ya'll hear me

Brown Sugar babe, I gets high off your love
I don't know how to behave

I want some of your Brown Sugar, ooh ooh

    General CommentIt's definitely about a girl with whom he has such a wonderful physical connection it's like he's getting high.
    Favorite line: "The way that we kiss is unlike any other way. That I be kissin' when I'm kissin' what I'm missin' "
    To miss her kisses while you're kissing I could only imagine. Good kisses are the basis of any good physical relationship.

    Brown Sugar babe I gets high off your love
    I don't know how to behave

    He's just reminiscing about his experience with her and how he couldn't stop wanting her even if he tried.

    Some people you'll never forget the way they made/make you feel.

    Song MeaningThis song is DEFINITELY about weed .
    Brown sugar --> meaning a swisher sweet (the body is brown . Sugar=Sweet)

    See we been makin' love constantly
    That's why my eyes are a shade
    Blood burgandy --> When you smoke weed your eyes turn bloodshot red .


    The way that we kiss is unlike any other way
    That I be kissin' when I'm kissin' what I'm missin'
    Won't you listen --> The way he kiss (smokes) the blunt is UNLIKE any other way that he kisses, when he kisses what he misses (actual woman) . Its a difference from the way he smoke to the way he actually kisses..

    Brown Sugar babe, I gets high off your love
    I don't know how to behave --> Basically self explanatory, if you understand anything about getting high .

    And whenever you let me hit it,
    Sweet like the honey when it comes to me. --> 'Hit it' hit the blunt , or the 'sweet' .


    Skin is caramel with the cocoa eyes
    Even got a big sister by the name of Chocolate Thai --> Up until this point i may not have convinced you . But Chocolate Thai is a form of Cannibus or WEED .

    Explaining the rest of the song from here on out is quite pointless . Point made .
