Out of all the nights I remember,
Of all of the loves I recall,
There are many who live in my memory,
But you were the sweetest of all.

Wasn't it sweetest of all, Babe,
Wasn't it sweetest of all;
I wasn't your first love, I wasn't your last,
But wasn't it sweetest of all?

Sometimes I still think about you,
Sometimes I wish that you'd call;
And sometimes I feel like
you're lying here with me,
And it's still the sweetest of all.

So keep your goodbyes in your pocket,
You ain't going nowhere at all;
Your memory is staying here with me,
'Cause you were the sweetest of all.

Wasn't it sweetest of all, Babe,
Wasn't it sweetest of all;
Of all of the lovers you let lie beside you,
Wasn't we sweetest of all?

Wasn't it sweetest of all, Babe,
Wasn't it sweetest of all;
Of all of the lovers you let lie beside you,
Wasn't we sweetest of all?
