Subject: Help me write a song
From: Jeep man
Date: 23 Dec 02 - 09:00 PM

Folks, I need help in writing a Sugar Babe song that I can perform at a family get together. There are lots of verses to this old song, but this one has a twist. Sugar Babe is a dog! Lately Sugar won't sleep on his bed, stays out until all hours, getting fat and lazy.



Melody will be just standard old blues stuff.

Last verse reveals that she is a Cocker Spaniel.

Sugar Babe whats the matter with you?
Don't you love me like you used to do?
Sugar Babe, is it all over now?

Sugar Babe whats the matter with you
Are you running around with somebody new
Oh Sugar Babe, is it all over now.

Any help will be appreciated. How about you Jerry R.? Thanks, Jeep



Sugar Babe, whats the matter with you


Are you running around with somebody new?
Oh Sugar Babe is it all over now?

I didn't do a good job presenting this. Sorry. The hook to all this is that Sugar Babe is pregnant. Jim

Seems like I already got in trouble on this one once, Jeep.. Funny, the women didn't complain when Elvis was singing about a Hound Dog that was a man. But then, we ain't Elvis.

I'll have to think on this one for a minute, Jeepman. Don't want to be accused of being sexist..:-)

Oh, Sugar Babe, why can't you act nice,
Got a bun in the oven and it's startin' to rise
Oh, Sugar Babe, cant you turn that damper down?

Sugar Babe, you been making eyes,
Now you swole to twice yore size,
Tell me, who's the new dog in your town?

A

Sugar Babe, don't look that way

Beggin' you, baby, beggin' you to stay

No one's gonna love you ike I can do
'Cause no one's like me one's like you

Yeah, Sugar, you gotta know ya' gotta stay
Lord, Sugar, ya' know ya' gotta stay
'Cause I'm lovin' you gal, Sugar Babe

Hey, you said it was blues....

A couple of possible verses:

Sugar Babe, there's talk you roll over too quick
For any guy in pants with a great big stick.
Any shepherd or boxer or even the boy next door.

I thought you was true, a man's best friend,
Now it looks you done gone 'round the bend.
Some say you're a bitch, some say you're just a ... free spirit.


And an orphan couplet:

You're guilt-trippin' me with those big eyes of brown,
Beggin' for me to take you out.

Who's a poochy poochy poochy poo?
Awwwwwwwwwwww.......

Hard to know how the scansion on this should go but, guitar in hand, these fell out:

Sugar Babe... oh don't you remember when?
No, you couldn't get enough; wanted it again and again
Sugar Babe, is it all over now?

Sugar Babe... I'm-a worried `bout you
You don't wanna do all the things we used to do
Sugar Babe, is it all over now?

Sugar Babe... Don't you hear what I say?
You just ain't yourself, I hate to see you this way
Oh Sugar Babe, (spoken) I think maybe it's time to change to that special kibble for older dogs, whattaya think? Yeah...

This is getting good! Cluin, I think you might have experienced this. You write well. I will try to get everyone's stuff into it, at least one verse.

A few more to choose from and I will be happy. I will send the finished song to the forum. We'll all take credit. Merry Christmas from Jeepman.

Sugar Babe, Sugar Babe, where do you roam:
I used to call your name and you'd come,
you'd come, running on home.

Hey, it doesn't have to be Sugar Babe, does it Honey Chile, Sugar Doll, Honey Lamb?

Sugar Babe, I'm watching you grow
Found you've got to reap what you sow

Sugar Babe, I'm telling you true
No more doggin' round for you

    .... very trad!

You slip me the tongue ev' time we kiss,
It may be puppy love, Babe, but I tell you this:
The way you shake yo' tail's boun' to bring me to my knees!

Well, Sugar Babe, y'know it's a crime to litter,
But you're so dog-gone sweet, I just can't be bitter,
Even though you run around like a tramp out on the street.

Sugar babe, what's wrong with your noodle?
You've pushed me aside for some other poodle.
Oh sugar babe, it's all over now.


Sugar babe you just went out for awhile
You come back home with a big toothy smile.
Oh sugar babe it is all over now.


Sugar babe,your making me a fool
I ain't kissin' your mouth with all that drool.
Oh sugar babe, it's all over now.


Peace , Rustic
