  • A long time ago
    We used to be friends
    But I haven't thought of you lately at all
    If ever again
    A greeting I send to you
    Short and sweet to the soul I intend

    Come on now, sugar
    Bring it on, bring it on, yeah
    Just remember me when

    It's something I said
    Or someone I know
    Or you called me up
    Maybe I wasn't home
    Now everybody needs some time
    And everybody knows
    The rest of it's fine
    And everybody knows, yeah

    Come on now, sugar

  • Luke from Auckland, New ZealandI'm somewhat of a small fan of this band given that I really loved (and only owned) the album, 'Welcome To The Monkey House' (2004), which I thought was brilliant - a pinnacle of their stylish talent which had a variety of great tracks on it.
    I'm obviously surprised that there are few tracks of theirs here at all, given their short but significant heyday of not so many years ago. It's wouldn't be their noted penchant for getting high that detracts from their accomplishments?
  • Frank Zappa from Baghdad, -This song is about Anton Newcombe from the Brian Jonestown Massacre .
