about

Sixto Rodríguez is an American folk musician from Detroit. His career initially proved short-lived with two little-sold albums in the early 1970s. Unbeknownst to him, however, his work became extremely successful and influential in South Africa, although there he was mistakenly rumoured to have committed suicide. The full story is reflected in the 2012 Oscar winning documentary: Searching for Sugarman.

lyrics

Sugar man, won't you hurry
'cos i'm tired of these scenes
For a blue coin won't you bring back
All those colors to my dreams.

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet mary jane

Sugar man met a false friend
On a lonely dusty road
Lost my heart when i found it
It had turned to dead black coal

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet mary jane

Sugar man you're the answer
That makes my questions disappear
Sugar man 'cos i'm weary
Of those double games l hear

Sugar man...sugar man...sugar man...sugar man...sugar man...sugar man...sugar man...

Sugar man, won't you hurry
'cos i'm tired of these scenes
For a blue coin won't you bring back
All those colors to my dreams.

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet mary jane

Sugar man met a false friend
On a lonely dusty road
Lost my heart when i found it
It had turned to dead black coal

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet mary jane

Sugar man you're the answer
That makes my questions disappear
