The song was publishe 1927.

Maceo Pinkard wrote the all-black revue Liza in 1922,

and led his own orchestra.
In addition to “Sugar” he collaborated on two other jazz standards,
“Sweet Georgia Brown” and “Them There Eyes.”
His wife, Edna Alexander, collaborated on “Sugar”
as did lyricist Sidney Mitchell (Sidney D. Mitchell),
who also wrote the words for “You Turned the Tables on Me.”

“Sugar” was recorded by bandleader Adrian Rollini in 1929
and by Louis Armstrong, Earl Hines, Fats Waller, Bing Crosby,
and the bands of Benny Goodman, Count Basie,
and Fletcher Henderson.
Billie Holiday recorded it in 1939 with a septet led
by pianist Teddy Wilson and featuring Benny Carter on alto sax.
Gene Krupa’s band recorded an arrangement of the song
by Gerry Mulligan, clarinetist Kenny Davern recorded it in 1994,
Ralph Sutton included it in a stride piano tribute in 2000,
and the Manhattan Transfer performed it live in Tokyo in 2003.

Sugar, I call my baby my sugar
I never maybe my sugar
That sugar baby of mine
He's special ration
Funny, he never asks for my money
All I give him is honey
And that he can spend anytime

I'd make a million trips to lips
It I were a bee
Because he's sweeter than chocolate candy to me
He's confectionary

Sugar, I never cheat on my Sugar
Cause I'm too sweet on my Sugar
That sugar baby of mine
