"Sugar Me" is a song written by Lynsey de Paul and Barry Green. The first version of this song to be released was recorded by de Paul as her first single on MAM Records in 1972. It was produced by Gordon Mills and the B-side was de Paul's version of "Storm in a Teacup", a song she co-wrote and had been a hit for The Fortunes earlier that year. The single was a hit in many countries, notably reaching the top of the singles charts in the Netherlands, Belgium and Spain as well as the top 20 in the UK, Australia, Germany, Austria, Denmark, Sweden and Japan. It also reached the #1 position on the Bangkok HSA charts in October 1972. Sugar Me was ranked the 14th best selling single of 1972 in the Netherlands. The version on de Paul's debut album, Surprise, was a slightly extended version and was produced by De Paul.

The song has been recorded by many other artists, notably Nancy Sinatra, as a non-LP single, (more recently it appeared as the lead track on the CD album How Does It Feel), Claudine Longet on her album Sugar Me, Dutch group Gigantjes, Belgium female trio "Candy", Nydia Caro, Esmaye on her album Elements in Me, plus singer-songwriter Nasia Christie who released her version of "Sugar Me" as her first single produced by Brian Canham from Pseudo Echo in 2007, and most recently by Papernut Cambridge, Italian artist, LIM and Karl Jonas on his 2016 album, In a Gilbert Play.
