about

A word from our sponsor - Sugar-Oh's

It is no secret that Sugar-Oh’s have been consistently providing the world with high-quality, delicious products since 1951. And several years ago, we thought to ourselves, “Why don’t we provide high-quality, delicious music to the world too?” And that’s exactly what we did! With the inception of SugarHope Records, the world can finally enjoy the simultaneous consumption of music AND sugar, just as nature intended.

We had a bright young talent on our writing staff who was such a jokester! Oh boy! She’d say things like “remember when you promised that you’d release my album 5 years ago? Any… any word on that?” or “I have some photos of you paying off a safety inspector at one of your factories in Guatemala.” And what do ya know, 3 months later and here we are releasing her debut album.

And what better opportunity to celebrate the 65th anniversary of Sugar-Oh’s than by sharing some of our greatest jingles and products from over the years on this very album! Including the very first jingle, which aired November 17, 1951. Needless to say Jude was ecstatic about this decision to interject these commercials onto her debut album, as are we!

So without further ado, I present to you ‘Jude Perl: Modern Times’. I haven’t personally had a chance to listen to this album, but my personal assistant has informed me that “parts of it are okay”.

Rick Gatorshwartz, CEO, SugarHope Records

Track Name: Hungry & Horny
You sucked me in
I’m hooked on you
I can’t win
No matter what I do
You’re all around me
Everywhere I look
It’s not fair

You’re a snake
Setting traps all over the place
Never showing your face
You’re killing us slowly,
Sometimes quickly
Don’t you care?
But that’s how you wanna live your life

CHORUS
You want me hungry and horny
Crawling up to you and begging for another spoon of it
You want me stupid and lonely
But I think we’ve all had just about enough of it

We all pay
For the insults you spit in our face
Intelligence waste
Nobody needs you
Nobody wants you
In their life
I’m so sick and tired of your lies!

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I know I’m not alone
Maybe we all feel this way
But we don’t know what to do
Where to go or what to say

My new choice
I’ve decided to tune out
Your voice
Inside I rejoice
Nobody needs you
Nobody wants you
In their life
I’m so sick and tired of your lies!

CHORUS x2
Track Name: Can't Wait To See You
I just can’t fight it
I’ll never be the same
Cause I get so excited
Just thinking about your name
My heart’s invited
For your love to stay
Now that I’ve tried it
I need you every day

CHORUS
I just can’t wait to see you (x4)

I had no problems
Living on my own
No one to hold me
No place called home
But when I saw you
Something in me changed
My heart belonged to you
Before I knew your name

CHORUS

All the times I cried alone
I’d given up on what I need
All the painful scars
And broken hearts
Led me to believe
I could only find true love
In movies and my dreams
But you’re the greatest thing
That’s ever happened to me

CHORUS
Track Name: Sugar-Oh's
Sugar-Oh
Helps me grow
Stronger every day
Hot for breakfast, cold for lunch
And energy to play!

Sugar-Oh’s, I love you
I would go to war for you
Keeps me healthy and up beat
Super duper tasty treats!

From my head, to my toes
I love my Sugar-Oh's!

Tell your folks to buy Sugar-Oh's. Packed full with vitamin D, E, F and Q.

I love my Sugar-Oh’s!
Track Name: The Better Life Gets
CHORUS
Well the better life gets, the worse it is
I got a hole in my heart, the size of my fist
And all the things that I love, right in my home
But I wouldn’t know cause I’m all alone
Would you believe this is how good I live
I got so many things, but nothing to give
I don’t know how I get any place
I can’t see the sun with a phone in my face

All I do is count the hours till the day is through
But time’s still disappearing faster than I want it to
Craving something that only a hopeful heart can bring
Craving something I don’t have when I’ve got everything

CHORUS

I don’t know why I say the things I do now, no
I don’t know why I can’t stop thinking about it, baby
Don’t listen to me, I don’t know the way
I wish I could run, but there’s no escpae
So look in my eyes, tell me what’s real
Give me some life, teach me to feel

CHORUS

Well the better life gets, the worse it is
I got a hole in my heart, the size of my fist
And all the things that I love, right in my home
But I wouldn’t know cause I’m all alone

Well the better life gets, the worse it is (x4)
Track Name: Yetta
Needing some inspiration
From this year’s complications
Nowhere to hide
Got no guide
To see you through with patience

Some people look to prophets
When moral lines they’ve crossed it
Through joy and pain
I feel no shame
Her wisdom’s always wanted

CHORUS
And I ask myself, what would yetta do? X4

You really think you can take her?
She’ll beat you before you wake her
I’ve always found
Her logic’s sound
So don’t underestimate her

Her memory may not function
But don’t make no assumption
Just watch that walk
She’s sizzling hot
And a master of seduction

CHORUS

BRIDGE
You young girls with your heels so high
Think you’ve got the secret of life
You want to know just how to get a sexy appeal
Then just go ask Yetta

CHORUS x2
Track Name: So Hot Right Now
I know you’re looking at me
You just can’t help it
I know you want me so bad
You just can’t help it
Cause I’ve got my thick socks on
That really turns you on
Flat shoes and comfortable jeans
I know how to sell it

This is how I do it and you wonder how
Everybody tells me I’m so hot right now
I don’t need nobody here to check me out
I’m so hot right now

I know you love my scarf
You love the way I wear it
You know, around my neck
That’s normally how you would wear it
There’s nothing more sexy
Than practicality
My cardigan won’t come off
Cos its kindof cold in here

This is how I do it and you wonder how
Everybody tells me I’m so hot right now
Don’t need to be skinny or well endowed
I’m so hot right now

This is how I do it and you wonder how
All the fellas tell me I’m so hot right now
Even with some pimples and a monobrow
I’m so hot right now

And as this party gets hotter
I grab my bottle of water
That’s how I roll I’m just crazy
Oh yeah hydrating

This is how I do it and you wonder how
Everybody tells me I’m so hot right now
I don’t need nobody here to check me out
I’m so hot right now

This is how I do it and you wonder how
Everybody tells me I’m so hot right now
I don’t need nobody here to check me out
I’m so hot right now

This is how I do it and you wonder how
All the fellas tell me I’m so hot right now
Don’t need to be skinny or well endowed
I’m so hot right now
Track Name: Sugar Stuff
Honey coated, sugar toastey
Chocolate flavoured cookie crunchy
Gooey cinnamon, flavourlicious
TOTALLY AWESOME C-C-CARAMELICIOUS

SUGAR STUFF!
Is really good
SUGAR STUFF!
It's very very good
SUGAR STUFF!
Did I mention that it's good?
Sugar Stuff is so so good.... Sugar Stuff

Sugar Stuff. Part of this complete breakfast
Track Name: Poison Diet
Overlooked, overweight
Overworked, underpaid
Over time, start to see
Effects it has on me
Every hour, every day
Every moment slips away
Not a minute my mind’s quiet
I’m living in a poison diet

Poison Diet (x3)

Inactivity has been injected
Leaving us disinterested
Living life seem to despise
Totally desensitized
Never thinking, never caring
Empathy no longer sharing
Too lazy to think to fight it
(We’re) stuck here in this poison diet

Poison Diet (x3)

You look to the sky and get a cold shock
Every single inch of it’s been sold off
Trying to relax you need some fresh air
To your lung’s dismay you find it’s not there
You start to feel faint, your stomach aching
Only pills and fast food are they making
No time to reflect on this disaster
More money you make, you need it faster

Nothing moved, nothing fled
Nothing’s changed, nothing’s said
But it’s not in your head and
Nothing’s done till your dead
What’s the point spend one more day?
Living life this way?
We’re too good to even try it,
We’ll be running from this poison diet

Poison Diet (x3)
We don’t need this Poison Diet (x4)
Track Name: Money Got In The Way
I don't know how, I get any place
I can't see the sun with a phone in my face (x4)

I was gonna change the world
I was gonna take the plunge
I was gonna speak the truth
I was gonna be someone

I was never gonna stop
Never was I planning to
But here I am, safe and sound
So I don’t have a reason to

CHORUS
Money got in the way
Money got in the way
How can I complain?
When money got in the way

You were gonna take a chance
Never leave your soul to waste
You were gonna live with love
Make the world a better place

You were never gonna stop
Follow in your hearts desires
But life became the push and shove
took the spark out of your eyes

CHORUS

Money gave me a house full of pride
Money gave me glitter in my eyes
Money helped me live my life
But money stopped me from living it right
Track Name: Just Don't Know
I heard you say I love you but I
Don’t know what it means cause when I
Look at you it’s not in your eyes
I just don’t know

You hold me close and kiss me sweetly
Never say a bad word to me
Without you my life would be empty
I just don’t know

Won’t you tell me
What is it supposed to be?
What did I do to make you disappear?

Lately my heart’s been in pieces
Craving all your empty kisses
Sadness always has excuses
I just don’t know

Sometimes I wonder why I need you
Can’t go one day without seeing you
Break my heart I still won’t leave you
I just don’t know

Won’t you tell me
What is it supposed to be?
What did I do to make you disappear?

Something tells me we’re both lying
Bout the feelings that we’re hiding
Maybe we should just stop trying
I just don’t know

But when I think that it’s all over
Days go by I can’t recover
Never dreaming of another
I just don’t know

Maybe I should leave, maybe I should stay
Maybe I should leave, maybe I should stay
Maybe you should leave, maybe you should stay
Maybe you should leave, maybe you should stay
We got a good thing going
We got a good thing going
Am I bad for you? Are you wrong for me?
When did this all change? You used to love me
Track Name: Don't Blame Me
I don’t care how hard you think you’ve tried
I don’t care how many tears you’ve cried
I don’t care if no one thinks I’m right
I don’t care if the world is on your side

BRIDGE
So you lie and cheat
Now you want sympathy
And an apology
You must be kidding me

CHORUS
Don’t blame me for the mess you made
Don’t blame me for the love I gave
Don’t blame me I just can’t take
You blaming me for your mistake
Don’t blame me for trusting you
Don’t blame me I’m being used
Don’t blame me what can I do?
You’re blaming me for your mistake

You don’t care how many lies you say
You don’t care what problems you create
You don’t care what others have to pay
You don’t care so long as it goes your way

BRIDGE

CHORUS
Track Name: SugarHope
Hey, come over here
Go over there
Don’t be scared now

Yeah, lift up your head
Hold out your hand
Pull up your pants now

Why did you pull down your pants?
We only just met
But that’s why I like you

People connecting, grandmas laughing
Nostalgia and ethnic dancing

Wooahhh x 3
Living every day with SugarHope

Wooahhh x 3
Living every day with SugarHope
Track Name: Slaves
We think we know
We think we see
Don’t we understand
We don’t see anything
We get thrown around
By what we tell ourselves
And we’ll just keep on going
Waiting in our cells

We live in a world that we create
Never questioning our constant state
Never learning to appreciate
All the things that live and breathe around us

Our magic minds just fly
Days, months, and years go by
But that little spark inside
Is wondering why

We live in a world that never stops
Pushing us to be something we’re not
All the love we had we now forgot
We can’t even feel this world around us

Cause we’re slaves
But our mind’s made up that we
Understand ourselves
All the things that we believe
It’s really a cry for help

Cause we’re slaves
But our mind’s made up that we
Understand ourselves
All the things that we believe
It’s really a cry for help

It might just take too much
To change what we know
So scared of happiness
We’d rather stay depressed

Habits take control of everything
Down a path we don’t remember choosing
We look back it’s all just so confusing
Why did I ignore this world around me?
Track Name: Empty Room
Heartbreak
It doesn’t take a lot for me to be in agony
I get there pretty easily
Overwhelmed, I get upset
More frequently I care to admit
And heartbreak, is not the answer

Anger
I know I got a tendency to get
Infuriated over something small
Before too long I’ve lost control
Now anger, is not the answer

BRIDGE
What’s happening to me?
Why can’t I just be happy?
I don’t know what it’s supposed to be
I wanna be better than this

CHORUS
All I want is an empty room filled with nothing but the light
From a window
Facing the sun
All I want is an empty room filled with nothing but the light
From a window
Facing the sun

Money
There’s not a lotta good to say about a dollar
We crave it more than water
Seems to me what money brings
Is lack of motivation to chase your dreams
Money, is not the answer

BRIDGE

CHORUS
Track Name: Canyon
Time drips away the lonely hours
When there’s nothing on your mind
Brought here amongst the earthly power
I had looked too hard to find

Eyes open more than I can fathom
Mountains greeting everyone
Love echoes in the deepest canyon
Hope is stretched below the sun

CHORUS
Life is a gift
We were born to feel
This place is real
We’re all the same
There’s a truth inside
That can never die

Time standing still like he has found me
There’s a smile in his eyes
Dreams pouring out from all around me
And they’re lifting to the skies

I see faces carved over millions of years
I hear voices calling through my fears
There’s a wind behind me lifting to the sky
There’s a hope around us that can never die

CHORUS

There’s a wind behind me lifting to the sky
There’s a hope around us that can never die

CHORUS
Track Name: Baby
All the things I wanna say to you
My heroes have said it better
Cause all I do is think about you
Baby won’t you be mine, forever
Won’t you be mine, forever?
Won’t you be mine, forever?

CHORUS
Baby, I just want to write a song for you
Baby, you got me feelin’ so alive
Baby, I ain’t never called nobody baby before
Unless they were a baby
You know like one that's crawling on the floor

Love is a mystery
Will you break my heart
Will you set me free
Nothing goes, the way you planned
Don’t be afraid to take a chance

CHORUS

Some people wait, some people tell lies
Some people never look into your eyes
Some people stand, some people sit
There’s a lot of other things people do I can’t list them all right now

CHORUS
