Shug Avery Comin' To Town lyrics

Shug Avery Comin' To Town

Where my shirt?
Where my hat?
Where you put my braces at?
Fix my tie,
Press my pants,
Ugly man ain't got no chance!
What is you fussin' for, mister?
What you care about 'sides yourself?
Celie head full o' rocks
There's holes in my sunday socks.
Mister jarene
Shug avery comin' to town! Shug avery comin' to town!
Church ladies
Lock up all your mens
And your young boys, too.
Shug ain't got no friends
'Cept the ones she screw!
Church ladies & mister
Shug avery comin' to town!
Church ladies mister
Shug comin'! Mmmm, gonna get me
Shug comin'! Some sugar tonight!
Sharp as a tack
With your hair slicked back.
Spit on your shoes,
What you tryin' to do?
Church ladies
That mister sho do shine
When shug come cross that county line.
Man 1
Ain't no other woman like shug.
Man 2
Like shug.
Oh lord, let me cross
Into her promised land.
Church ladies
Drinkin' the gin,
Lovin' all the mens,
Strumpet in a short skirt
Got no pride!
Bumpin' in the shed.
Bouncin' in the bed.
Don't you know it ain't no lie . . .
Church ladies, townspeople & mister
Shug avery comin' to town.
Got about a million questions
Crawling around my head -
What she wear?
How her hair?
Is she skinny?
Is she stout?
Must be somethin' to fuss about.
Shug avery bring down this town!
Church mama
Fire and brimstone rainin' down!
Oh, she
Comin', comin'!
Shug avery heat up this town!
Church mama
She gonna turn into a pillar of salt!
Oh, no, no, no!
Church ladies & ensemble
Shug avery she back in town!
Ooh, that shug,
You know she no good.
A snake in the woods
Gonna poison you.
You don't understand
What it do to a man
When you in her hands
And she turn that screw.
Better say farewell,
'Cuz you're goin' to hell!
But a man feel swell
When he in her spell.
Better lock your doors!
Better change your drawers!
She's coming, coming, coming, coming . . .
Shug avery she back in town!
Shug avery . . . . . .
She back in town!
