Sunday Samples 288

August 5, 2012

Having just written up my review of Searching for Sugar Man — and since I’m stymied at deciphering the lyrics of the credits track from Poupoupidou — I can think of no better choice than the song by Rodriguez that gave the movie its title: “Sugar Man”

Sugar man, won’t you hurry
‘Cause I’m tired of these scenes
For the blue coin won’t you bring back
All those colors to my dreams

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet Mary Jane

Sugar man, met a false friend
On a lonely dusty road
Lost my heart; when I found it
It had turned to dead black coal

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet Mary Jane

Sugar man, you’re the answer
That makes my questions disappear
Sugar man, ’cause I’m weary
Of those double games I hear

Sugar man
Sugar man
Sugar man
Sugar man
Sugar man
Sugar man
Sugar man

Sugar man, won’t you hurry
‘Cos I’m tired of these scenes
For the blue coin won’t you bring back
All those colors to my dreams

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet Mary Jane

Sugar man met a false friend
On a lonely dusty road
Lost my heart when I found it
It had turned to dead black coal

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet Mary Jane

Sugar man you’re the answer
That makes my questions disappear
