Silver magic ships you carry Jumpers, coke, sweet Mary Jane

I love the song and the lyrics to Sugar Man.

I first heard it in the movie CANDY (2006) with Heath Ledger and Abbie Cornish (great movie, I liken it to an Australian version of Requiem for a Dream).

SUGAR MAN by Sixto Rodriguez
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 I 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 the 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

Treat yourself and have a listen.

  1. I heard this so much at Primavera last week, I didn’t know who it was until I found the lyrics here ❤

    Hey just got led here from looking up lyrics. I only discovered Rodriguez yesterday after going to see this documentary about finding him at an independent cinema.

    Take it easy.
