There are so  many good songs that have the prompt words in the titles or lyrics it’s hard to pick one. However, I’ve liked this song for a long time and remember hearing it on the radio when it first came out.  Hope you like it, too. 🙂


Sugar Shack” is a song written in 1962 by Keith McCormack. McCormack gave songwriting credit to his aunt, Beulah Faye Voss, after asking what are “those tight pants that girls wear” to which she replied “leotards”. The song was recorded in 1963 by Jimmy Gilmer and the Fireballs at Norman Petty Studios in Clovis, New Mexico.[1] The unusual and distinctive organ part was played by Petty on a Hammond Solovox, Model J. The original instrument is on display at the Norman Petty Studios today.[2]

On the road, the band played “Sugar Shack,” which got a great response. They urged their producer, Norman Petty, to record the song, and he did so at his studio in Clovis, New Mexico. Released in May 1963, the song took off, climbing to #1 in October.


There’s a crazy little shack beyond the tracksAnd everybody calls it the sugar shackWell, its just a coffeehouse and its made out of woodEspresso coffee tastes mighty goodThat’s not the reason why I’ve got to get backTo that sugar shack, whoa babyTo that sugar shack.
There’s this cute little girlie, she’s a-working thereA black leotard and her feet are bareI’m gonna drink a lot of coffee, spend a little cashMake that girl love me when I put on some trashYou can understand why I’ve got to get backTo that sugar shack, whoa babyTo that sugar shack, yeah honeyTo that sugar shack, whoa yesTo that sugar shack
Now that sugar shack queen is a-married to me, yeah yeahWe just sit around and dream of those old memoriesAh, but one of these days I’m gonna lay down tracksIn the direction of that sugar shackJust me and her yes were gonna go backTo that sugar shack,Whoa uh ohO that sugar shack, yeah honeyTo our sugar shack
Yea, yea, yea, our sugar shack
