Honeysuckle Rose
Andy Razaf (w)
Fats Waller (m)
I have no use for other sweets of any kind
Since the day you came around.
From the start, I instantly made up my mind,
Sweeter sweetness can't be found.
You're so sweet,
Can't be beat,
Nothin' sweeter ever stood on feet.
Ev'ry honey bee
Fills with jealousy
When they see you out with me,
I don't blame them,
Goodness knows,
Honeysuckle rose.
When you're passin' by
Flowers droop and sihg,
And I know the reason why,
You're much sweeter, goodness knows,
Honeysuckle rose.
Don't buy sugar,
You just have to touch my cup,
You're my sugar,
It's sweet when you stir it up.
When I'm takin' sips
From your tasty lips,
Seems the honey fairly drips,
Your confection, goodness knows,
Honeysuckle rose.
