Down by the sea staring at the sunset
All those colors of light like a flame through the heart
But I never saw a sunset woman till I met you

The sweetest thing you’re the sweetest thing

Down by the sea starring on the heavens
All those stars in the sky those beacons of light
But I never even noticed them until I met you

The sweetest thing you’re the sweetest thing

Tell what is this lament? I cant tell you
I’ve been a dead man running, all of my life
And I never felt a thing woman till I met you

The sweetest thing you’re the sweetest thing

    General CommentHi TrojanHorse. You've probably got your answer by now, but just in case...
    The fellow singing with JJ Grey on "The Sweetest Thing" is Toots Hibbert.
    Toots' contribution to this song is cool. At times it sounds as if his voice is about to quit on him, but no, he pulls it off beautifully!

    Take care and best wishes from Toronto, Canada.
