[Verse 1]
Dm7                                   Dm7 D#m7 Cm7
   The sweetest thing I've ever known
                                   Cm7 C#m7 Dm7
Was like a kiss on the collarbone
                         Dm7 D#m7 Cm7
Soft caress of happiness
                                     Cm7 C#m7 Dm7
The way you walk, your style of dress
                            Dm7 D#m7 Cm7
I wish I didn't get so weak
                                  Cm7 C#m7 Dm7
Ooo, baby, just to hear you speak
                           Dm7 D#m7 Cm7
Makes me argue just to see
                                Cm7          
How much you're in love with me


[Chorus 1]
            D#maj7     Dm7    Cm7             Cm7 C#m7           
See, like a queen, a queen   upon her throne
           Dm7           Dm7      C#m7    Cm7    Cm7 C#m7
It was the sweet, sweet, sweetest thing I know
           Dm7           Dm7      C#m7    Cm7    Cm7 C#m7
It was the sweet, sweet, sweetest thing I know


[Verse 2]
Dm7                              Dm7 D#m7 Cm7  
    I get mad when you walk away 
                                         Cm7 C#m7 Dm7
So I tell you "Leave", when I mean "Stay"
                               Dm7 D#m7 Cm7
Warm as the sun dipped in black
                                  Cm7 C#m7 Dm7
Fingertips on the small of my back
                   Dm7   D#m7 Cm7      Cm7 C#m7 
More valuable than all   I    own    
Dm7                                                   Dm7  D#m7 Cm7               Cm7 C#m7
    Like your precious, precious, precious, precious, precious dark skin tone 


[Bridge]
           Dm7           Dm7      C#m7    Cm7    
It was the sweet, sweet, sweetest thing I know
             F#m7
It was the...
Bm7 F#m7 Bm7 F#m7 Bm7               F#m7 Bm7
Ah,               I tried to explain
Gm7 C9  Gm7 C9 Gm7               C9   Gm7 C9
    Ah,        but baby, it's in vain


[Verse 3]
Dm7                              Dm7 D#m7 Cm7
    Speaking on my mother's phone
                                     Cm7 C#m7 Dm7
The touching makes me think I'm grown 
                          Dm7 D#m7 Cm7
Sweet prince of the ghetto
                               Cm7 C#m7 Dm7
Your kisses taste like amaretto
              Dm7 D#m7 Cm7              Cm7 C#m7 
Intoxicating, oh, so    intoxicating
Dm7                      Dm7 D#m7   Cm7
   How sad, how sad that all things come to an end


[Chorus 2]
          D#maj7 Dm7          Cm7         Cm7 C#m7
But then again,      I'm, I'm not alone
           Dm7           Dm7      C#m7    Cm7    Cm7 C#m7
It was the sweet, sweet, sweetest thing I know
           Dm7           Dm7      C#m7    Cm7    
It was the sweet,        sweetest thing I know


[Outro]
F#m7 Bm7 F#m7 Bm7    F#m7        Bm7               F#m7 Bm7
     I           sometimes watch you in your sleep
Gm7 C9  Gm7 C9       Gm7         C9        Gm7 C9
    Ah,       excuse me if I get too cheesy,      hey
           Dm7           Dm7      C#m7    Cm7    
It was the sweet, sweet, sweetest thing I know...
