As recorded by ETHEL WATERS, 20th February 1926: Have you heard what I've done Found a word just for one That takes the place of one I used to call Baby Doll It ain't new, it ain't old But if you do what you're told You'll find the answer if you'll take a look At Mr. Webster's dictionary book The name is Sugar I call my baby my Sugar That is the reason why maybe That sugar baby is mine I'm shoutin' for him Funny, he doesn't spend any money All he can lend me is honey That he can spend anytime I'd make a million trips to his lips if I were a bee 'Cause they are sweeter than any candy to me That's why I'm sighin' Sugar, I get my taffy from Sugar What's more I'm daffy 'bout Sugar That sugar baby of mine (Piano Solo - Maceo Pinkard) My Sugar's so refined You can't find none like him in town He'll make it more complete He's so sweet and so ground He's special ratio Sugar knows I'm just sweet on my Sugar No, I won't cheat on my sugar That sugar baby of mine (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2017) ******************** as rec by Billie Holiday w Teddy Wilson & his Orch Jan 30th 1939 New York Sugar, I call my baby my sugar, I never "maybe" my sugar, That sugar baby of mine, He's special ration! Funny, He never asks for my money, All that I give him is honey, And that he can spend any time! I'd make a million trips To his lips If I were a bee, because he's sweeter than Chocolate candy to me, He's confectionery! Sugar, I never cheat on sugar, 'Cause I'm too sweet on my sugar, That sugar baby of mine. (Contributed by Peter Akers - June 2010)
