THis is back to my Jazz roots with Manhattan Transfer. It's got harmony and scatting. A real fun song.

Ain’t  Nothin’ Sweeter Than Your Love

By Marty Nelson  c 2013

 

Drizzlin’ honey on a Sunday scone.

Shakin’ sugar on my latte foam.

Just like the cooin’ of the Mournin’ Dove.

There ain’t nothin’ sweeter  . . . than your love.

 

Slittin’ a lime on an ice cold gin.

Slippin’ a look with a midnight grin.

Whisperin’ words that jerk my heart and soul.

There ain’t nothin’ sweeter  . . . than your love.

 

Feel the heat - kisses sweet.

Lose my mind - in your eyes.

Hold me close – squeeze me right.

Put all you got . . . where it counts

Every night . . .  Every night.

 

Scat

 

A cool breeze in the summertime.

A soft touch and a satisfied sigh.

Sweet music swingin’ from the moon above.

There ain’t nothin’ sweeter  . . . than your love.

Sweeter than your love.

Sweeter than your love.

Ain’t nothin’ Sweeter than your love.
