    That's definitely a song I mumble sang.

    Blah blah blah, BROWN SUGAR, blah blah....

    I never read the lyrics before. They are freaking hard core! If you just read the lyrics I can see how people would think it's racists. You have to dig a little deeper then just the lyrics though. You can take any song, poem, written word and put your own opinions and thought into it. Just because you wrote something like "Four Dead in Ohio" doesn't mean you endorse killing college students.

    It sounds like the Stones wrote it to show how terrible the slave trade was and how it was for women. I personally don't think they were singing the praises of slavery and rape.

    Literally a song about how horrible slavery was not just for the field workers, but how the slave owners would rape the young slave girls as well

    [Verse 1]
    Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields
    Sold in the market down in New Orleans
    Scarred old slaver knows he's doing alright
    Hear him whip the women just around midnight

    [Chorus]
    Brown sugar, how come you taste so good? Uh huh
    Brown sugar, just like a young girl should, uh huh, oh (Woo)

    [Verse 2]
    Drums beating, cold English blood runs hot
    Lady of the house wonderin' when it's gonna stop
    House boy knows that he's doing alright
    You shoulda heard 'em just around midnight


    [Chorus]
    Brown sugar, how come you taste so good now?
    Brown sugar, just like a young girl should now (Yeah)

    [Chorus]
    Ah, get on, brown sugar, how come you taste so good?
    Ah, got me craving the, the brown sugar
    Just like a black girl should, yeah


    [Verse 3]
    Ah, and I bet your mama was a tent show queen
    And all her boyfriends were sweet sixteen

    I'm no schoolboy, but I know what I like
    You shoulda heard me just around midnight


    Lyrics I can see how some think it's like, praising fucking black slave girls?

    But I feel like that's misinterpreting the art on a dark subject

    Were the lyrics about the slaver whipping the cotton field bound women that arrived in New Orleans on slave ships from the Gold Coast in the very first verse a little too subtle for you?

    They don't dare to play it anymore because someone will call them racist.
    You and I both know what this is.

    To be completely honest I never could really tell what the hell they were singing in much of the song. Pretty much just "duh duh duh duh duh brown sugar. How come you taste so good."

    Never looked up the lyrics until now.

    I can't believe Keith Richards cancelled his own song. Libs have no shame at all, no shame. They're even cancelling themselves! What a world

    Ok, ok, ok.... Just don't cancel Cherry Pie.. Not sure what I'll do.... lol

    Dirty, rotten, filthy, stinkin'
    She's my cherry pie
    Cool drink of water, such a sweet surprise
    Tastes so good, makes a grown man cry
    Sweet Cherry Pie, yeah

    Well, swingin' on the front porch, swingin' on the lawn
    Swingin' where we want 'cause there ain't nobody home
    Swingin' to the left and swingin' to the right
    If I think about baseball, I'll swing all night, yeah
    Yeah, yeah
    Swingin' in the living room, swingin' in the kitchen
    Most folks don't 'cause they're too busy bitchin'
    Swingin' in there 'cause she wanted me to feed her
    So I mixed up the batter and she licked the beater
    I scream, you scream, we all scream for her
    Don't even try 'cause you can't ignore her

    In all fairness, it's a sleazy song regardless of whether its a classic or not and the Stones are hit and miss with their music.

    Verse 2 makes me think the song is about a slave banging the headmaster's wife. I also never listen to the lyrics of songs, just the beat.
