Def Leppard - Pour Some Sugar On Me




"Pour Some Sugar on Me" is a song by the English rock band Def Leppard from their 1987 album Hysteria. It reached number 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 on 23 July 1988, behind "Hold On to the Nights" by Richard Marx. "Pour Some Sugar on Me" is considered the band's signature song, and was ranked #2 on VH1's "100 Greatest Songs of the 80s" in 2006.


Elliott claims the song was at least partially inspired by the Aerosmith and Run-DMC version of "Walk This Way", which made him realize the potential of the mixing of rap and rock.


The song's lyrics were written after Elliott and Lange went to opposite ends of the studio control room and delivered stream-of-consciousness words into a pair of dictaphones while the song's backing track played. They then swapped dictaphones and tried to determine what each other's words were. In the Hysteria episode of the Classic Albums documentary series, Elliott said he thought he heard the phrase "love is like a bomb" on Lange's tape "and that set the whole tone for the lyric."






Lyrics


Step inside, walk this way

You and me, babe

Hey, hey


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 Missy Innocent, sugar me

Yeah

Yeah, uh, 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

I can't get enough


I'm hot, sticky sweet

From my head to my feet, yeah


Listen

Red light, yellow light, green 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, squeeze a little, tease a little more

Easy operator come a knockin' on my door

Sometime, anytime, sugar me sweet

Little Missy 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, 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 (hot), say what, sticky sweet

From my head, (head, head), my head to my feet


Do you take sugar?

One lump or two?


Take a bottle (Take a bottle)

Take it up (Shake it up)

Break the bubble (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

Oh, I can't get enough


Pour some sugar on me

Oh, 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 meDef Leppard - Pour Some Sugar On Me
