Beat by Theory Hazit, Piano/keys by Wonder Brown

lyrics

Lil’ Shugah

Yeah, I’ve been with Miss Brown, but your Miss Brown Wonder/this town ain’t big enough to hold me down/so you know on this ground/it’s only right I found love when I had enough/ready to get down, and gone for the last round/perpetually packed for the background/pushed you away just in case the day came to cast out/a higher calling on my back sounded right at the time/but I was blind to the fact, how/I was down-for-the-count cause you were down despite my flaws/and waited around when the night’s crowd applause/left you in awe, then left me alone/but simple and plain you were next to the throne/at the right hand of God’s, when I was down on all fours/applause or none at all, you were right for the cause/opened my eyes to see the steps at the doors/came to me a package deceptively large

You’re my Lil’ Shugah
To have and to hold
I want you to know
That life wouldn’t be so sweet without my Lil’ Shugah
To have and to hold
I want you to know
That life wouldn’t be so sweet without my Lil’ Shugah…

You’re my Lil’ Zilla now/Small Wonder that I’m getting down/always giving when I’m settled in the kitchen, ‘bout/to eat something fresh, trim with simply enough/created to give freely when the giving is tough/she’s like some soul food, you see/so easy-does-it when it’s Sudoku to me/trying to solve the puzzle of this broke dude, for free/was something I gave up in my old youth, in need/of the hope you believe/I prayed so many nights/for the pain of the past to be vacant from my life/and rise the next day, awakened by the light/of the blessing I can now say I’ve taken to be my wife…
