"Suikerbossie" ("Sugarbush") is the national flower of South Africa. It's also a term of endearment that could be translated as "sweetie" (to keep the sweet shade of the word). "Suikerbossie ek wil jou he" (Sugarbush, I Want You So) is a traditional song of South Africa.

The version in the video below has the following additional verse:

Sy kan nie kos maak nie, haar kos is rou
(She cannot make food, her food is raw)
Sy kan nie tee maak nie, haar tee is flou
(She cannot make tea, her tea is weak)
Sy kan nie brood bak nie, dis als verbrou
(She cannot bake bread, it's all a mess)
Maar suikerbossie ek's (is) life vir jou
(But little sugarbush I'm in love with you.)

Repeat 1st verse above.
