a little sugar in my bowl

 

 

as I have always considered lyrics to be poetry, from nina simone. to be read and enjoyed slowly.

 

Sugar in My Bowl

I want a little sugar
In my bowl
I want a little sweetness
Down in my soul
I could stand some lovin’
Oh so bad
I feel so funny and I feel so sad

I want a little steam
On my clothes
Maybe I can fix things up
So they’ll go
Whatsa matter Daddy
Come on, save my soul
I need some sugar in my bowl
I ain’t foolin’
I want some sugar in my bowl

You been acting different
I’ve been told
Soothe me
I want some sugar in my bowl
I want some steam
On my clothes
Maybe I can fix things up so they’ll go
Whatsa matter Daddy
Come on save my soul
I want some sugar in my bowl
I ain’t foolin’
I want some, yeah, in my bowl
