Song Meaning and Background of Watermelon Sugar by Harry Styles


The song "Watermelon Sugar" was written by Styles, Mitch Rowland, and the producers Kid Harpoon and Tyler Johnson.


It was written in September 2017 while Styles was taking a break from his Harry Styles: Live on Tour schedule. They entered The Cave Studio in Nashville, Tennessee, and began the recording session by simply experimenting. 


They eventually began brainstorming and came up with the catchy chorus melody. They acquired Richard Brautigan's book In Watermelon Sugar and believed it would make a good hook. According to rumours, the song is about Camille Rowe, an In Watermelon Sugar fan and Styles' ex-girlfriend.


The song was successful financially as well, reaching the top ten in more than 20 nations, including the UK, Australia, Canada, and the US, where it debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 list for Styles's first time. It won the Best Pop Solo Performance Grammy Award in 2021 and Song of the Year at the 41st Brit Awards in the same year.


Lyrics of Watermelon Sugar by Harry Styles


Tastes like strawberries on a summer evenin'

And it sounds just like a song

I want more berries and that summer feelin'

It's so wonderful and warm

 

Breathe me in, breathe me out

I don't know if I could ever go without

I'm just thinking out loud

I don't know if I could ever go without

 

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar

 

Strawberries on a summer evenin'

Baby, you're the end of June

I want your belly and that summer feelin'

Getting washed away in you

 

Breathe me in, breathe me out

I don't know if I could ever go without

 

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high

 

I just wanna taste it, I just wanna taste it

Watermelon sugar high

 

Tastes like strawberries on a summer evenin'

And it sounds just like a song

I want your belly and that summer feelin'

I don't know if I could ever go without

 

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high (Sugar)

Watermelon sugar high (Sugar)

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar high

 

I just wanna taste it, I just wanna taste it (Woo)

Watermelon sugar high

I just wanna taste it, I just wanna taste it (Ooh)

Watermelon sugar high

Watermelon sugar
