Sugar Sugar

This song is about sugar and honey and love.

Basically it is a metaphor for the sweetness of love. Candy, sugar and honey are all sweet things and love is sweet too.

At the beginning of our study of English we learn that some verbs do not appear in present continuous tense, for example, like, want and love.

Languages Change

The MacDonalds’ advertisement slogan “I am loving in” has actually changed the way we use the word “love”. We used to use it in present simple but now it is used in present continuous as well.

In the song “Sugar Sugar” we also hear:

“You are my candy girl and you got me wanting you.”

Note how the singer transfers his desire (wanting) to the object of his desire (candy girl) when he says:

“You got me wanting you.”
