Tired of bein' lonely, tired of bein' blue, 
I wished I had some good man, to tell my troubles to 
Seem like the whole world's wrong, since my man's been gone 
I need a little sugar in my bowl, 
I need a little hot dog, on my roll 
I can stand a bit of lovin', oh so bad, 
I feel so funny, I feel so sad 
I need a little steam-heat, on my floor, 
Maybe I can fix things up, so they'll go 
What's the matter, hard papa, come on and save you mama's soul 
'Cause I need a little sugar, in my bowl, doggone it, 
I need a little sugar in my bowl 
I need a little sugar, in my bowl, 
I need a little hot dog, between my rolls 
You gettin' different, I've been told, 
Move your finger, drop something in my bowl 
I need a little steam-heat on my floor, 
Maybe I can fix things up, so they'll go 
(spoken: Get off your knees, I can't see what you're drivin' at! 
It's dark down there! 
Looks like a snake! see'mon here and drop somethin' here in my bowl, 
Stop your foolin', and drop somethin', in my bowl)
