What A Sweet Thing That Was

This song is by The Shirelles and appears on the album The Shirelles Sing To Trumpets And Strings (1962).

You said hello and loneliness said goodbye then
It made me so glad that I almost had to cry then
I never believed in love at first sight
But when you held me tight that night
I knew, with you it wasn't a lie now
Said oh my, my, my, my, my-my
What a sweet thing that was (sweet thing that was)

Your soul was sweet, your lips were warm and tender
I wanted your kiss, I couldn't resist, surrender
I could have sworn that violins played
'Cause when the rhythm swayed with you so near
I heard the sound of your sigh now
Said oh my, my, my, my, my-my
What a sweet thing that was (sweet thing that was)

I heard you sighing, whoa
I felt like crying
You weren't lying, no no
What a sweet thing that was (sweet thing that was)

And then I heard you whisper the word "forever"
I knew that we'd live the rest of our lives together
The feeling we shared was too much to bear
And when you said you cared, I swear
I felt that I was ready to die now
Well, oh my, my, my, my, my-my
What a sweet thing that was (sweet thing that was)
What a sweet thing that was (sweet thing that was)
My, my-my-my, my-my (sweet thing that was)
What a sweet thing that was (sweet thing that was)
My, my-my-my, my-my
