About Sweet Nothin's

Sweet Nothin's is a 1959 song by Brenda Lee written by Ronnie Self. It peaked at #3 on the Cash Box Top 100 and #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also reached #12 on the Hot R&B Sides chart, in 1960. The song (as Sweet Nuthin's) also charted on the UK Singles Chart in 1960, climbing to #4, marking Lee's first appearance on the United Kingdom chart. Lee's voice from "Sweet Nothin's" was sampled in Kanye West's song "Bound 2" on his 2013 album Yeezus, which in turn was sampled by Sigma in their 2014 song, "Nobody to Love", which also uses the same vocal sample from "Sweet Nothin's" as "Bound 2" does.

Uh huh, honey alright
My baby whispers in my ear 
Mm sweet nothin's
He knows the things I like to hear 
Mm sweet nothin's
Things he wouldn't tell nobody else 
secret baby I keep them to myself
Sweet nothin's um sweet nothin's

We walk along hand in hand 
Mm sweet nothin's
Yeah we both understand 
Mm sweet nothin's
Sittin' in a classroom tryin' to read my book 
my baby gives me that special look
Sweet nothin's, mm sweet nothin's

Ah, sittin' on my front porch 
Mm sweet nothin's
Well do I love you of course 
Mm sweet nothin's
Mama turned on the front porch light
Sayin' come here darlin' that's enough for tonight
Sweet nothin's 
Mm sweet nothin's, sweet nothin's
Mm sweet nothin's, sweet nothin's
