Appearances

Overview

"Sugar Booger" was in early contention for the Green Album. The song was featured on a 2000 demo tape submitted by the band to Interscope/Geffen in hopes of receiving approval for a third album[1]. The song was one of fourteen Green sessions tracks leaked online prior to the album's release, in a shorter 3:40 edit than the final "Island in the Sun" B-side version, which clocks in at 4:05.

Lyrics

Break my spine sugar booger
Break down and lose your sweet mind now
'Cause that's the way that you wanna be
'Cause that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
Yeah that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be

Waste my time sweety, pretty
Bust out the hammer-time moves y'all
'Cause that's the way that you wanna be
'Cause that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
Yeah that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be

Everytime you turn around
I just want to hit the ground
Locked up in your little world
Makes me feel so insecure
And now

Draw that line
Maybe, baby, we could get up and kick it down
'Cause that's the way that you wanna be
'Cause that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
Yeah that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be

Spank my plank funky, pokey
You children now ya must bust out
'Cause that's the way that you wanna be
'Cause that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
Yeah that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be

Everytime you turn around
I just want to hit the ground
Locked up in your little world
Makes me feel so insecure
And now

Show me now

Everytime you turn around
I just want to hit the ground
Locked up in your little world
Makes me feel so insecure
And now

Draw that line
Maybe, baby, we could get up and kick it down
'Cause that's the way that you wanna be
'Cause that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
Yeah that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be

'Cause that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
'Cause that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
'Cause that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
'Cause that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
Yeah that's the way
