About Sweet About Me

"Sweet About Me" is the second single by Australian singer-songwriter Gabriella Cilmi from her debut album, Lessons to Be Learned (2008). The song was used in commercials for Sure and Dove Bodywash in Europe, as well as a commercial for Rexona Roll On in Brazil. It additionally was used in a Hair Cuttery commercial in the U. S. for a short period of time. The song appears on the international soundtrack to the Brazilian telenovela A Favorita and on the soundtrack to the Portuguese telenovela Feitiço de Amor. It was also featured in the "Chapter Ten: Let It Be" episode of the NBC series Lipstick Jungle and in an episode of the VH1 reality television series Rock of Love: Charm School. There are two versions of the song: the album version and the radio edit. The first verse is cut in half in the radio edit and the song opens up with the lyrics: "Oh, watching me hanging by a string this time" followed by "Oh, easily climax of a perfect lie". In the album version, there is a repetition of the first line followed by the line: "Don't, easily a smile worth a hundred lies"; the radio edit omits these two lines before going into the pre-chorus. A Twenty Ten mix of "Sweet About Me" was included on Cilmi's second album, Ten, released in March 2010. On 21 December 2009, PRS for Music announced that "Sweet About Me" was the most played song in the United Kingdom during 2009. The song also won the Grand Prix during the 46th Sopot International Song Festival in 2009.

Oh, watching me
Hanging by a string this time
Don't, easily
The climax of the perfect lie
Oh, watching me
Hanging by a string this time
Don't, 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 world's 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

Sweet about me
Nothing sweet about me, yeah

Sweet about me
Nothing sweet about me, yeah

Sweet about me
Nothing sweet about me, yeah

Sweet about me
Nothing sweet about me, yeah

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 my side of the tracks

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 world's 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

Sweet about me
Nothing sweet about me, yeah

Sweet about me
Nothing sweet about me, yeah

Sweet about me
Nothing sweet about me, yeah

Sweet about me
Nothing sweet about me, yeah

Sweet about me
Nothing sweet about me, yeah

Sweet about me
Nothing sweet about me, yeah
