lyrics

Hey Baby, Don’t your man treat you right?
Cause I figure there’s more fun to be had,
than shopping on a Saturday night

I’m tempted to play the teaser, to show you what you need
Some good ol’ fashioned lovin’ baby to wipe away that greed

Sugarbaby, can’t you see the writing on the wall
Plastic joys and expensive toys, they’re pretty boring after all
If your soul is empty, better fill it up
Take a drink from my loving cup

If money’s your religion, it’s time you got baptized
After your first communion, my lovin’ll be your prize

Ooh sugarbaby, your love of money just ain’t right
I’ll show you the real deal honey if you stay with me tonight

Sugarbaby, just keep a bit of me beneath your belt
A new life can be yours, a newer you than you’ve ever felt
If your soul is empty, better fill it up
Take a drink from my loving cup

Welcome to your new self, I’ll bet you’re glad you’re free
It sure was fun convertin’ ya’ baby, now you can spend some of that money on me...
