Word Salad Wednesday – Def Leppard: Pour Some Sugar on me

The single most overplayed song of the summer of 1988 more than earns a place in our hall of shame.

If anybody ever figures out what a radar phone is, I’m pretty sure I need one. Also I am pretty sure even Brits don’t pronounce ‘saccharine’ that way.

Actual Lyrics

Love is like a bomb baby c’mon get it on
Livin’ like a lover with a radar phone
Lookin’ like a tramp, like a video vamp
Demolition woman, can I be your man? (Your man)

Razzle ‘n’ a dazzle ‘n’ a flash a little light
Television lover, baby, go all night
Sometime, anytime, sugar me sweet
Little miss ah innocent sugar me, yeah, yeah
So c’mon, take a bottle, shake it up
Break the bubble, break it up

Pour some sugar on me
Ooh in the name of love
Pour some sugar on me
C’mon fire me up
Pour your sugar on me
Ooh I can’t get enough
I’m hot, sticky sweet
From my head to my feet, yeah

Listen, red light, yellow light, green-a-light go
Crazy little woman in a one man show
Mirror queen, mannequin, rhythm of love
Sweet dream, saccharine, loosen up (loosen up) loosen up

You gotta squeeze a little, tease a little please a little more
Easy operator come a knockin’ on my door
Sometime, anytime, sugar me sweet
Little miss innocent sugar me, yeah, yeah
Give a little more, take a bottle, shake it up
Break the bubble, break it up

Pour some sugar on me
Ooh in the name of love
Pour some sugar on me
C’mon and fire me up
Pour your sugar on me
Oh, I can’t get enough
I’m hot, sticky sweet
From my head to my feet yeah

You got the peaches, I got the cream
Sweet to taste, saccharine
Cause I’m hot, (say what), sticky sweet
From my head, (my head) to my feet
Do you take sugar? One lump or two?

Take a bottle (take a bottle)
Shake it up (shake it up)
Break the bubble (break it up)
Break it up (break it up)
Pour some sugar on me
Ooh in the name of love
Pour some sugar on me
C’mon fire me up
Pour your sugar on me
Ooh I can’t get enough
Pour some sugar on me
Ooh in the name of love
Pour some sugar on me
Get it, come get it
Pour your sugar on me, oh
Pour some sugar on me yeah, sugar me
