“Sugar baby love, sugar baby love
I didn’t make to make you blue
sugar baby love, sugar baby love
I didn’t mean to hurt you.

All lovers make
make the same mistakes
yes, they do
yes, all lovers make
make the same mistakes
ss me and you

Sugar baby love, sugar baby love
I didn’t make to make you blue
sugar baby love, sugar baby love
I didn’t mean to hurt you.

People take my advice
if you love somebody
don’t think twice.

Love your baby love, sugar baby love
love her anyway, love her ev’ryday”.

“Dolce piccolo amore
non volevo farti arrabbiare
dolce piccolo amore
non volevo ferirti

Tutte le persone che si amano
fanno gli stessi errori
sì, li fanno
sì, gli innamorati li fanno
fanno gli stessi errori
come me e te

Dolce piccolo amore
non volevo farti arrabbiare
dolce piccolo amore
non volevo ferirti

Ragazzi, seguite il mio consiglio
se amate qualcuno
non pensateci due volte

Amate il vostro piccolo amore
dolce piccolo amore
amatela sempre, amatela ogni giorno”.

Citazioni.

Sugar Baby Love, recorded in autumn 1973 and released in January 1974, is a bubblegum pop song, and the debut single of the Rubettes. Written by Wayne Bickerton and Tony Waddington and produced by Bickerton, engineered by John Mackswith at Lansdowne Recording Studios, and with lead vocals by Paul Da Vinci, “Sugar Baby Love” was the band’s one and only number one single in the UK Singles Chart, spending four weeks at the top of the chart in May 1974.
Bickerton and Waddington had been writing songs together since they were both members of the Pete Best Four in Liverpool in the early 1960s. Their biggest success had been writing “Nothing but a Heartache“, a US hit for The Flirtations in 1968. In the early 1970s, they came up with the idea for a rock ‘n’ roll musical. They co-wrote and produced a demonstration recording of “Sugar Baby Love“, recorded October 1973 with Tonight, Juke Box Jive and Sugar Candy Kisses (which became a hit for Mac and Katie Kissoon). They originally intended to submit it for the Eurovision Song Contest but instead offered it to Showaddywaddy and Carl Wayne, who both turned it down. They then offered it to the demo musicians, provided that they would become an actual group. With the exception of the recording’s lead singer, Paul Da Vinci, who had signed a solo recording contract with Penny Farthing Records. Surprisingly, only John Richardson, who played drums and spoke the “please take my advice,” would sign up and later become a member of The Rubettes. “Sugar Baby Love” became a UK No. 1 hit in 1974, also reaching No. 37 and No. 30 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and Cashbox charts, respectively. It also reached No. 1 in Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Austria and Belgium, and No. 2 in Australia, South Africa and Italy.
Bickerton said: “We had Paul DaVinci singing in that incredibly high falsetto voice and then a vocal group sings ‘Bop-shu-waddy’ over and over for about 3 minutes. Gerry Shury, who did the string arrangements, said, ‘This is not going to work: you can’t have a vocal group singing ‘Bop-shu-waddy’ non stop.’ A lot of people said the same thing to us and the more determined I became to release it. The record was dormant for 6 or 7 weeks and then we got a break on Top of the Pops and it took off like a rocket and sold 6 million copies worldwide. Gerry said to me, ‘I’m keeping my mouth shut and will concentrate on conducting the strings'”.
