Sugar Magnolia blossom's blooming 
Head's all empty and I don't care
Saw my baby down by the river 
Knew she'd have to come up soon for air

 Sweet blossom come on under the willow 
We can have high times if you'll abide 
We can discover the wonders of nature  Rolling in the rushes down by the riverside 

She's got everything delightful
She's got everything I need
 Takes the wheel when I'm seeing double
Pays my ticket when I speed 

She come skimming through rays of violet 
She can wade in a drop of dew
She don't come and I don't follow  Waits backstage while I sing to you

She can dance a Cajun rhythm
Jump like a Willys in four wheel drive
She's a summer love in the spring, fall and winter 
She can make happy any man alive 

 Sugar magnolia
Ringin' that blue bell
 Caught up in sunlight 
Come on out singing 
I'll walk you in the sunshine 
Come on honey, come along with me

She's got everything delightful
She's got everything I need
A breeze in the pines in the summer night moonlight  Crazy in the sunlight yes indeed 

 Sometimes when the cuckoo's crying 
When the moon is halfway down
 Sometimes when the night is dying 
I take me out and I wander round
I wander round

 Sunshine daydream
 Walking through the tall trees  Going where the wind goes
 Blooming like a red rose
 Breathing more freely  Light out singing 
I'll walk you in the morning sunshine
 Sunshine daydream
Walk you in the sunshine
