Suga Mama is a song by Fifth Harmony included in their first studio album, Reflection, which debuted on February 3, 2015.

Critical Response

"A 2010s update of "No Scrubs," 'Suga Mama' is a strike down against guys hanging out the passenger side of their best friend's ride, who expect their woman to pay for them instead of finding a source of income. Some of the lines of 'Suga Mama' are straight-up uproarious: "Ain't nobody love me like you do/I won't call you lazy… but how you pay for food?" the group asks, leaving no terms uncertain.", according to Jason Liphutz of Billboard.

"Musically I can’t name 'Suga Mama' as a favourite, but I love the lyrics — and you might just be crazy if you aren’t singing along. Clearly the girls are not in favour of being anyone’s sugar mama, because they need a man who can support himself. It may not be the most memorable song but it gets points for its original lyrics.", according to Rebecca Mattina of andPOP.

"'Suga Mama' is another track inspired by the great girl groups of a slightly older era (think Destiny’s Child or Danity Kane). Meghan Trainor co-wrote this one, and you can definitely hear her influence as well, if you’ve heard some stuff from her debut album Title. Over a bouncy, glitchy beat, the girls declare they don’t want to wine and dine their dates, so you won’t be getting any handouts from them. All of their voices are on point in this song, and their attitude is perfect for a feisty track like this. 'Suga Mama' is definitely another highlight from the album.", according to Marcel Jeremiah of PPcorn.

Lyrics

Camila:
Boy you know that I want it
I can tell you want me as your lady
Can't deny that you're sexy
So what's it goin' be

Normani:
Is you gon' get a job and make some of that green
You tryna take me out, but you can't pay for me
I guess I got the cash, I'll take one for the team
Baby, can't you see?

Lauren with Fifth Harmony harmonizing:
O-oh, oh, oh
O-oh, oh, oh
I won't ask you to go

Fifth Harmony:
But I can't be your suga mama
Your suga mama, baby

I can't be your suga mama
I said, I said
I can't be your suga mama
Your suga mama mmm, mmh

I can't be your suga mama
Your suga mama, baby
I can't be your suga mama

And even though I love the thought of you
No, I can't be your, I can't be your
Su-su-su, your suga mama
Su-su-su, your suga mama
Su-su-su, your suga mama

Camila:
Hmm, yeah!

Ally:
Hey!
I love what you do to me
Ain't nobody love me like, like you do
I won't call you lazy, but how you pay for food

Dinah:
My daddy said "no", you ain't no good for me
Not ballin' in that dough, but I'm paying for your things
Somethings gotta change boy
Hmm, please (Boy please)
Oh baby, can't you see?

Lauren with Fifth Harmony harmonizing (Camila):
O-oh, oh, oh (Yeah)
O-oh, oh, oh (No-oh, ah)
(with Ally: I won't ask you to go!)

Fifth Harmony with Ally & Camila ad-libs:
But I can't be your suga mama
Your suga mama, baby

I can't be your suga mama
I said, I said
I can't be your suga mama
Your suga mama mmm, mmh

I can't be your suga mama
Your suga mama, baby
I can't be your suga mama

And even though I love the thought of you
No, I can't be your, I can't be your
Su-su-su, your suga mama
Su-su-su, your suga mama
Su-su-su, your suga mama

Camila:
Hmm, yeah

Normani:
Ain't got that money money, ain't got a damn thang
Wish you could be my honey, you make me sang sang

Dinah & Normani:
Ain't got that money money, ain't got a damn thang
What you want me to say, oh!

Fifth Harmony (Camila):
But I can't be your suga mama
Your suga mama, baby (Suga Mama, baby)

I can't be your suga mama
I said, I said
I can't be your suga mama
Your suga mama mmm, mmh

(I can't be your...)
I can't be your suga mama
Your suga mama, baby
I can't be your suga mama

(with Camila: And even though I love the thought of you)
No, I can't be your, I can't be your
Su-su-su, your suga mama
Su-su-su, your suga mama
Su-su-su, your suga mama

Su-su-su, your suga mama
Su-su-su, your suga mama
Su-su-su, your suga mama

Camila:
No, I can't be your suga mama
