"Sugartime" is a popular song written by Charlie Phillips and Odis Echols and published in 1957. The biggest hit version was by the McGuire Sisters, whose recording of it topped the Most Played Jockey chart in February 1958. It was also the second number-1 Billboard single for the trio after 1954's "Sincerely." The song refers to the Jimmie Rodgers song "Honeycomb", which had been recorded a few months earlier in 1957.
