Hello Miss Sweeney
Could you please come in
My office for a second?
I'm headin' home for the day
And I thought it'd be good
For you and me to check in
I met with a gal from expo
And they do have the "slab" cabinets in white
She thinks we can take measurements down at the site
If we do that we'll be just fine, Miss Sweeney
That's all I got to say to you at this time, Miss Sweeney
Actually, there's one other thing on my mind-

Girl, you make the rainclouds disappear
The sun always shines when you're near
I'm waiting
Until you love me

I'm so sorry Miss Sweeney
I don't know where that came from
I think I was overcome
By a spontaneous emotion
Anyway, the cash deposit
Of five thousand dollars
Will need to be sent
To the property owner tomorrow
If there are any problems
With the deposit or contract
Don't be afraid to holler
I don't wanna have to approve
Each stinkin' dollar
That we borrow
Ah- forget it!

Miss Sweeney
Girl, you make the rainclouds disappear
The sun always shines when you're near
I'm waiting
Until you love me

Miss Sweeney, I got to admit the truth
I am totally head-over-heels in love with you
Every day you come to the office lookin' fine
Navy business the suit clingin' tightly to your spine
You ask me if I'm ready to get down to work
Sweeney, baby, I'm ready

Be my
Girl, you make the rainclouds disappear
The sun always shines when you're near
I'm waiting
Until you love me- Girl!

You light the skies of my life
I swear, I will make you my wife
I'm waiting
Until you love me

Miss Sweeney
Miss Sweeney...

    General CommentThis is the BEST Weezer (post-pinkerton) written. This, along with Angel and the One, are just as brilliant and epic as the best tracks from Pinkerton.

    Great job Rivers, you finally got it back.

    Anyway, this song. Is really fucking awesome. Speculation is that this is about Rivers' old assistant, who was aptly named Sheeny.

    General Commentguy digochi, I think you might be on to something there. Suzanne is actually the first song that comes to mind when I hear this song. This is a new classic for Weezer. Very funny, but its got that Pinkerton emotion.

    Can anyone tell what's being said in the Nextel conversations in the background?

    General CommentHey ousan i think i was on to somthing... this is what i just read in the Suzanne songmeanings page..

    quoted from the booklet in the new Blue Album Deluxe Edition by Weezer : "suzane was a talented A&R assistnat at Geffen. in the long months of limbo between completeing the blue album in october '93 and its eventual release in may '94 she became a big weezer supporter, doing her best to keep the guys optimistic about their future with geffen. as the lyrics impy, suzanne did in fact help rivers out with her spare winter coat when he needed one, and made plates of brownies to c heer him up. her dovotion and aid were perfectly summed up in thei song. before she knew of the songs' existence the guys perfeormed it a cappella for her in her GEffen office. heedless to say it surprised the hell out of her!..

    Hmm... Suzanne was an assistant at A&R which would kinda explain the Secretary/assistant figure miss sweeney.. hmm.. that would be so cool if i was right lol..

    General CommentEasily my favorite Weezer song off the Red Album and it's not really even on there, just the deluxe edition.

    After reading the lyrics, I think it's about two people in construction - Miss Sweeney and her boss who is in love with her and happens to be the person singing this song.

    General Commentit's a shame this is only available on the deluxe addition. it's easily the best WEEZER song (non demo) in years. suzanne came to mind for me, too.

    General Commentsatansbride, nah I don't really think so, this is more at a office and Sweeney is his secretary but he is really in love with her and not that he is a demon barberer who's in love with a baker. It's great how they can put in on stage too, as a musical song almost, watch the aucustic on Youtube and you'll see, great song
