If you like brown sugar - let me introduce you to this word early - diabetes- this is a disease that comes from eating too much good tasting foods

That riff, is one of the most recognizable intros to any song, short of Superstition by Stevie Wonder. IMHO

This song was written for or about one of Mick's girlfriends. A year or two ago she sold Mick's letter's to her for a lot of money.

They've been loving the brown sugar for a long time. History lesson in a song.

I've never read the lyrics to this song...I always knew it was about a white guy interested in a black woman, I just never knew it was about slavery! Mick slurred his lyrics so much 40 + years have come and go before I realized what this song was really about. Strange.

I have this original record album. For those who have it know its way more awkward to see the front. For those that don't know, there is a zipper on the actually record album cover. Lol

Mick was right on with brown sugar whatever he was talking about

The funny thing songs is often thought about just a interracial sex, when really it a historically accurate song about slave rap. I black and think ironic not offense but it is a good song , because , hey at Least it had a legit meaning

my guess is the lyrics aren't listed because they are pretty raunchy and contain some controversia l material as well.

Lyrics not available for the Rolling Stones' Brown Sugar? Really, Pandora? Seems lame.

In summer 76 last day of their tour at gator bowl they (he) mumbled thru every song couldn't understand a word only the tune, enjoyed every bit of it. Late Billy Preston, J Giles was there too.

When you're in New Orleans you can't trust your moral compass. It's a little like Bermuda Triangle; compasses don't point to North anymore.They just spin around.

How could something that feels so right be wrong? Woooo!

I know, right?! I've heard this song for almost all my life and just realized how WRONG it is!

I think your right Steven. I grew up with this song and never realised how perverse the lyrics are.
