Gabriella Cilmi - Sweet About Me Lyrics

Verse 1:

Ohh watching me, hanging by a string this time.
Ohh easily, the climax of the perfect lie.
Ohh watching me, hanging by a string this time.
Ohh easily, smile worth a hundred lies.

If there’s lessons to be learned, I’d rather get my jamming words in first so, tell you something that I’ve found, that the worlds a better place when it’s upside down boy.

If there’s lessons to be learned, I’d rather get my jamming words in first so, when your playing with desire, don’t come running to my place when it burns like fire boy.

Chorus:

Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh

Verse 2:
Blue, blue, blue, waves they crash as time goes by, so hard to catch. Too, too smooth, ain’t all that, why don’t you ride on my side of the tracks.

If there’s lessons to be learned, I’d rather get my jamming words in first so, when your playing with desire, don’t come running to my place when it burns like fire boy.

Chorus:
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
(fading out)
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh

  5. Paul Stev Says:

    The repetitive lyrics has that rare quality to stimulate the listener to want to sing along or listen to the song over & over.

  10. TJ Says:

    Lame song - crap lyrics - why would an australian sing with an american accent in a western cowboy style….. awful and really Embarrassing!! I agree good vocals and ver pretty but why pretend to be american??????

  11. Nicola...ox Says:

    great song and a great talent for a 16 year old love this song it is one of the best songs going at the moment

    good luck for her in the cuming years

  12. gabriella Says:

  13. ella Says:

  14. tori Says:

    i think “sweet about me” is a really good song its a really catchy and i want it on my phone!!!! i cant believe she is only 16 omg!!!

  15. general jamming Says:

    o.k. thanks admin

    tj i don’t think it’s to do with an american accent so much, it’s a whole vocal style, which would have been chosen as appropriate to the song (written by a british song-writing company) and to her voice - trained at the Ciccone Academy of Performing Arts (comment from their website: “We concentrate on developing the voice. We make sure that the voice is well connected from ‘chest to head’ without a break using the revolutionary technique taught at the Ciccone Academy” http://www.cicconeacademy.com.au
    they train something called “speech level singing”
    i didn’t identify the voca style in “sweet about me” as specifically american, but if it is, i’m happy enough for a talented singer to make use of styles from around the world & not only her home country
    but i guess if you don’t like the song you just don’t like it.
    me i love it, but not the video

  16. chloe Says:

    its the best i love it its going arould my school me and my bestest mate go arould the school singing i love it i love the clip to it to it great i love the name too lol love yous all xoxo chloe

  18. Valuablelesson Says:

    Wow her nose is MASSIVE

  19. Vanessa Says:

    nice song. really, a nice song. and dont say her nose is massive cos it isnt. you know who you are.

  20. Kt Says:

    Message for Valuablelesson. Get a life how sad is it that you feel the need to say her nose is big. It’s so sad that we have to share a world with people like you!! Song is awsome…………….

  21. Pyro Says:

    You’ve forgotten

    “If there’s lessons to be learned, I’d rather get my jamming words in first so, tell you something that I’ve found, that the worlds a better place when it’s upside down boy.”

    After Verse 2:
    Blue, blue, blue, waves they crash as time goes by, so hard to catch. Too, too smooth, ain’t all that, why don’t you ride on my side of the tracks.

    Is where it should go and before
    If there’s lessons to be learned, I’d rather get my jamming words in first so, when your playing with desire, don’t come running to my place when it burns like fire boy.

  22. ursh Says:

  40. Kaytee Says:

    To be honest i don’t care what other people think. I think that she could be as good as Kylie, purly because she has never had anything about her name.

    Kaytee

  41. Sanci Says:

    Hey guys! I might have some minor problems with my english, yet it is unusual that i don’t understand the lyrics of a song. Could u please help me with these lines: ‘I’d rather get my jamming words in first so’ and ‘Too, too smooth, ain’t all that, why don’t you ride on my side of the tracks.’
    What do these parts mean?
    And i don’t understand ‘don’t easily’ either. What does it refer to?

  42. Dog Man Says:

    I hate this song! I just find her and her voice really irritating, not too mention the shit lyrics and pointless

  43. seelengreifer Says:

    what a voice….!
    she`s going to be a superstar very soon.

  44. me Says:

    this song is so cool i really want to be her i sing this song every day

  45. Talent Scout Says:

    I think the sweet about me song is absolute rubbish, does she think she is an american junkie? She sounds like a retard. I hope she gives it all away very soon. It’s currently the most annoying song on the radio closely followed by anything from the veronicas.

  46. max Says:

    i love you

  47. Steve Says:

    This song, lyrics aside, has that classic 1960’s type sound, & even though it’s relatively new, it sounds like it’s been around for years & years, like a song that hasn’t been on the radio for years, but once hearing it, u know the words, & feel nostalgic..

  48. angelie Says:

    Nice voice!….. I really like ur acient (if its reall) wen r u going to have a new song.

  49. Zoe is sexy Says:

    Seriosly!!! I just love your song. Its really cool and awsome! I seriosly can’t wait to hear tha next song I bet it will be great. And one more good thing is I love your voice. Xoxoxoxo

    Hello! How are you? I just love your song at the moment . I like listen to it nearly evryday and its so catchy. I even sing it in my head when we a test at school its that good I sing it nearly evrywhere. But im like getting sick of it listening to it evreyday so wen ru having ur new song?

  50. Jesse is hot Says:

    I totally love sweet about me it is my favorite song i love it and Gabriella is my idol she is awesome

  51. mushy Says:

    I love this song…and gabriella cilmi, too. she`s my favourite singer…:)

  52. Oliver Says:

    Tuned in to the end of “Strictly Come Dancing” (”Strictly” not my normal viewing diet) on BBC1 tonight so as to catch the start of the following program. Saw the last pair of contestants and was captivated by the song they were dancing to. Being a dinosaur and not into “popular culture”, I had never heard this song before, let alone knew who the performer was. After having a play around on line I found the song was “Sweet about me” and found myself writing a first on a site like this. What an amazing song; lyrics a bit too repetitive at times but loved it. Going to preview the album it’s from “Lessons to be learnd”. Not done that in years after only hearing one track.

    This song is now buzzing in my head and won’t go away. A welcome relief from Beethoven’s 5th Symphony which has been there for the last few weeks, and put there coutesy of BBC’s, “The Maestos”

  53. Memory Pieterse Says:

    Hi!
    I have the perfect picture to match this song. My well-built son aged 26 did a back sumersault. His silhoutte is blackened out against the blue sky, and it appears as if he is sitting upside down in the air.
    Are you interested to see it? Truly a perfect match.

  54. me Says:

    finally a song about a girl abusing guys in love…and a cool toon as well…hit em

  55. Tamika Says:

  63. David Says:

    Great voice, nice cute nose but not as cute as Mariah Carey’s.

  64. skinnyginny Says:

    Brilliant song. Seems to have a timeless quality about it

  65. David Says:

    Great nose - pretty big but really nice

  66. David Says:

    What a big but very pretty sexy nose

  67. Lex Says:

    She is one of the best Australian singers - no doubt about that! Her songs are just amazing. Gabriella Cilmi is the voice, the soul, the heart and hope of the young Australians, just wonderful and perfect! All the best to Gabriella Cilmi, keep going!

  68. Dan Says:

    What a sassy woman and what a big but cute nose!

  69. Ian Says:

    I agree. Look Leona Lewis has a big nose and fat legs. Mariah Carey has fat legs a big nose but is very pretty and she is a funky diva. Gabriella has a big nose but knows how to be sassy with it and really show it off.
