"Sweet Sweet Thing" as written by and Michael Arthur Herrera....
(1, 2, 3)
I finally met her parents on a Saturday Night
They gave me the eye, wouldn't let me out of their sight
They didn't like the looks of me right away
They told me to go, so I decided to stay

My eyes were brown and my hair was blue
Of course they had a problem with my tattoos
I can't please everybody all the time
So right now all I wanna do is make you mine

Chorus:
You're my sweet, sweet thing
You're my sweet, sweet thing
You're my sweet, sweet thing
On top of everything

Her dad asked what I did, I said I played in a band
He said he, "hated devil music and he wasn't a fan.
Musicians can't be trusted and your job is a joke.
I don't want my daughter spending her life broke."

After that I didn't really know what to say
So I said, "I think I'll date your daughter anyway"
I can't please everybody all the time
So right now all I wanna do is make you mine

Chorus

So now I think it's time to make my way to the door.
But be sure tomorrow night that I'll be back for more
I can't please everybody all the time.
So right now all I wanna do is make you mine

Your dad can't stand me and your mom's in shock.
Your brother wants to kill me and your sister won't talk.
I got the whole dinner table talking 'bout my hair
But I don't really care, it's just a family affair.

Chorus x2

    General CommentI can't believe no one's commented on this song yet. Yeah the meaning is outstandingly obvious, but it's such a cute song - I love it.

    General Commenti love this song, particularly because my fiance had blue hair and tattoos when he first met my parents.....
