"Be Sweet" as written by and Richard Mccollum Greg Dulli....
Ladies, let me tell you about myself
I got a dick for a brain
And my brain is gonna sell my ass to you
Now I'm OK, but in time I'll find I'm stuck

'Cause she wants love, and I still want to fuck
Now that I'm ashamed, it burns
But the weight is off
Now that you're out of the way

I turn and I can walk
You showed no sympathy, my love
And this was no place for you and me to walk alone
On my grave, am I OK?

I'm sure I'm not
Ladies let me tell you about my love
She kept giving me more
But it wasn't enough

So understand
Now that I come to you
To understand my little self
To understand my little self

And baby you be sweet
Be sweet, be sweet, be sweet
Baby, you be sweet
Be sweet, be sweet, be sweet
Be sweet, be sweet, be sweet

    General Commentstriderwho, I'd be more surprised if you HADN'T dated a guy like this, unless you married your hs sweatheart or something like that. Chudude is dead on with what he says ALL guys think like this to some extent; great song, Inrecrible album!

    General Commenthow come more people don't know about the afghan whigs? they need to listen to this music. damn, gentelmen is the most amazing album about depression and break ups that i have ever heard. it's a masterpiece and needs to be treated as such.

    General CommentYep. Afghan whigs is one of the best bands ever... but most people never heard them... This song is great. I tell girls i know that if they want to really know how guys think-listen to 'be sweet'.

    General CommentAlthough I've never dated a guy like this, the song gives me some insight into guys in general! Great guitar bit near the beginning, one of my favourite songs off "Gentlemen". I think I know a guy like this actually...
