"The Sweetest Thing" as written by and Dolores Mary O'riordan....
I am getting ready for my lover
He is coming home to me tomorrow night
I am getting ready for no other
He is the sunshine, the moonlight of my life

He has never had to disappoint me
It was the sweetest thing, the neatest thing in my life
So I am getting ready for my lover
He is the sunshine, the moonlight of my life

It's only fair that you'd be there with me
And hold my hand
It 's only fair that you'd be there with me
And understand

It's only fair, if you really dare
To hold my hand
It's only fair that you be there with me


I remember sweetness in my childhood
It was the sweetest time
The world was mine understood

I remember sweetness in my mother
She did the best she could
She always would for us

Don't you ever have to disappoint me

La de da

Repeat Chorus

    General CommentThis is still one of my favorite 'berries' songs because it was rare to find a happy song of theirs back then, and plus, it's soooo upbeat!
