"Sweetest Thing" as written by Barry De Vorzon, Wyclef Jean and Lauryn Hill....
The sweetest thing I`ve ever known
Was like the kiss on the collarbone
Soft caress of happiness
The way you walk, your style of dress
I wish I didn`t get so weak
Ooo, baby, just to hear you speak
Makes me argue just to see
How much you`re in love with me
See, like a queen, a queen upon her throne

It was the sweet, sweet, sweetest thing I know,
It was the sweet, sweet, sweetest thing I know

I get mad when you walk away (don`t walk away)
So I tell you leave, when I mean stay
Warm as the sun dipped in black

Fingertips on the small of my back
More valuable than all I own
Like your precious, precious, precious, precious dark skin tone

It was the sweet, sweet, sweetest thing I know,
It was the sweet, sweet, sweetest thing I know

It was the...Ah
I tried to explain
Ah...but baby, it`s in vain

Speaking on my mother`s phone
The touching makes me think I`m grown, (you ain`t grown)
Sweet prince of the ghetto
Your kisses taste like armoretto
Intoxicating, oh, so intoxicating
How sad, how sad that all things come to an end
But then again, I`m, I`m not alone

It was the sweet, sweet, sweetest thing I know,
It was the sweet, sweet, sweetest thing I know
