Verse:
I'm just a lit - tle "Jack - ie Hor - ner" since I met my sug - ar cane.
That gang of mine has been re - veal - in' that they're feel - in sore.
I left the lamp - light on the cor - ner for the moon in lov - er's lane.
I'm do - ing things I nev - er did be - fore:
 
Chorus:
When I take my sug - ar to tea, all the boys are jeal - ous of me,
'Cause I nev - er take her where the gang goes, when I take my sug - ar to tea.
I'm a row - dy dow - dy thats me. She's high - hat ba - by, thats she.
So I nev - er take her where the gang goes, when I take my sug - ar to tea.
Ev - ry Sun - day af - ter noon, we for - get a - bout our cares,
Rub - bing el - bows at the Ritz, with those mil - ion - aires.
When I take my sug - ar to tea, I'm as Ritz - y as I can be,
'Cause I nev - er take her where the gang goes, when I take my sug - ar to tea.
