"Sugar Booger" (aka "That's the Way" and "Hammer Time") is a B-side recorded during the sessions for the Green Album and released on the UK retail CD release of "Island in the Sun."

Appearances

Overview

"Sugar Booger" was in early contention for the Green Album. The song was featured on a 2000 demo tape submitted by the band to Interscope/Geffen in hopes of receiving approval for a third album.[1] The song was one of fourteen Green sessions tracks leaked online prior to the album's release. This unmastered version of the song is, notably, shorter than the official B-side edit by 24 seconds.

Another entry in the Catalog O' Riffs (#239) is labeled simply "Sugar Booger in A@118" (presumably, the same riff in a different key and tempo). This variation remains unheard by fans.

Lyrics

Break my spine, sugar booger
Break down and lose your sweet mind now
'Cause that's the way that you wanna be
'Cause that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
Yeah that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be

Waste my time, sweetie, beauty
Bust out the hammer-time moves y'all
'Cause that's the way that you wanna be
'Cause that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
Yeah that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be

Every time you turn around
I just want to hit the ground
Locked up in your little world
Makes me feel so insecure
And now

Draw that line
Maybe, baby, we could get up and get get down
'Cause that's the way that you wanna be
'Cause that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
Yeah that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be

Spank my plank, funky monkey
You children, now you must bust out
'Cause that's the way that you wanna be
'Cause that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
Yeah that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be

Every time you turn around
I just want to hit the ground
Locked up in your little world
Makes me feel so insecure
And now

Show me now

Draw that line
Maybe, baby, we could get up and kick it down
'Cause that's the way that you wanna be
'Cause that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
Yeah that's the way, that's the way that you wanna be
