I'm hurting, baby, I'm broken down
I need your loving, loving, I need it now
When I'm without you, I'm something weak
You got me begging, begging, I'm on my knees, yeah (hey)

I don't wanna be needing your love (hey)
I just wanna be deep in your love (hey)
And it's killing me when you're away
Ooh, baby
'Cause I really don't care where you are (hey)
I just wanna be there where you are (hey)
And I gotta get one little taste

Your sugar
Yes, please
Won't you come and put it down on me?
I'm right here, 'cause I need
Little love, a little sympathy
Yeah, you show me good loving, make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life
Your sugar
Yes, please
Won't you come and put it down on me (ay)

My broken pieces, you pick them up
Don't leave me hanging, hanging
Come give me some
When I'm without ya, I'm so insecure
You are the one thing
The one thing, I'm living for (hey)

I don't wanna be needing your love (hey)
I just wanna be deep in your love (hey)
And it's killing me when you're away
Ooh, baby (baby)
'Cause I really don't care where you are (hey)
I just wanna be there where you are
And I gotta get one little taste

Your sugar
Yes, please
Won't you come and put it down on me?
I'm right here, 'cause I need
Little love, a little sympathy
Yeah, you show me good loving, make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life
Your sugar (your sugar)
Yes, please (yes please)
Won't you come and put it down on me

Yeah
I want that red velvet
I want that sugar sweet
Don't let nobody touch it unless that somebody's me
I gotta be a man
There ain't no other way
'Cause girl you're hotter than a Southern California day
I don't wanna play no games
You don't gotta be afraid
Don't give all that shy shit
No make up on, that's my

Sugar
Yes, please (please)
Won't you come and put it down on me (down on me)
I'm right here (right here)
'Cause I need ('cause I need)
Little love, a little sympathy (so baby)
Yeah, you show me good loving
Make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life (yeah)
Your sugar (sugar)
Yes, please (yes, please)
Won't you come and put it down on me (down on me)

Your sugar
Yes, please (woo)
Won't you come and put it down on me (down on me)
I'm right here (right here)
'Cause I need ('cause I need)
Little love, a little sympathy
Yeah, you show me good loving
Make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life
Your sugar (your sugar)
Yes, please (yes, please)
Won't you come and put it down on me

Down on me, down on me
Ooh!

    General CommentThe music video for this song features the band crashing multiple weddings to perform the song.

    General CommentToss up between whether it is about being in love with someone, or in love with sex from someone in particular.

    The first verse seems to suggest it is about being in love with someone (and this suits the music video message good). However, the remainder of the lyrics seem to suggest that the "sugar" he wants is purely sexual. The lyrics I think are a lot "dirtier" than otherwise suggested by the music video.

    Song ComparisonThis is the millennial generation's version of Pour Some Sugar on Me. The lyrics of both songs speak metaphorically about various sexual activities. (Use your imagination.) This is, after all, the real meaning of the term, "Rock and Roll."

    Makes me wonder if Maroon 5's backstage antics ever get as wild and crazy as Def Leppard's back in the 80's.

    General CommentThe whole ‘red velvet’ just seems like a metaphor for a vajajay. Not periods, not red hair...and it seems like he is referring to liking going down on whomever it is he’s singing about.

    My InterpretationIn the literal sense, the line "I want that red velvet/I want that sugar sweet" makes it sound like that Adam Levine is singing about cake. In the figurative sense, it sounds like he's singing about having sex with a woman who is on her period.
