Emblematic ditty of the Coolidge Era and, along with the Democratic Party anthem, "Happy Days are Here Again" and "Crazy Words, Crazy Tune" on of the finest brain-trustings between lyricist Jack Yellen and composer Milton Ager.

It's been said that the song was inspired by Ager's daughter, Shana, who grew up to be the often un-sweet columnist and commentator Shana Alexander...

AIN'T SHE SWEET


THERE SHE IS! THERE SHE IS!, THERE'S WHAT KEEPS ME UP ALL NIGHT.
OH, GEE WHIZ! OH GEE WHIZ!, THERE'S WHY I CAN'T EAT A BITE.
THOSE FLAMING EYES! THAT FLAMING YOUTH!
OH, MISTER OH, SISTER TELL ME THE TRUTH

Chorus

AIN'T SHE SWEET?, SEE HER COMING DOWN THE STREET!
NOW I ASK YOU VERY CONFIDENTIALLY, AIN'T SHE SWEET?
AIN'T SHE NICE?, LOOK HER OVER ONCE OR TWICE
NOW I ASK YOU VERY CONFIDENTIALLY AIN'T SHE NICE?
JUST CAST AN EYE IN HER DIRECTION
OH, ME! OH, MY! AIN'T THAT PERFECTION?
I RE PEAT, DON'T YOU THINK THAT'S KIND OF NEAT?
AND I ASK YOU VERY CONFIDENTIALLY AIN'T SHE SWEET?

Verse 2

TELL ME WHERE, TELL ME WHERE, HAVE YOU SEEN ONE JUST LIKE THAT?
I DECLARE, I DECLARE, THAT SURE IS WORTH LOOKING AT.
OH, BOY, HOW SWEET! THOSE LIPS MUST BE!
GAZE ON IT! DOGGONIT, NOW ANSWER ME!

Chorus

AIN'T SHE SWEET?, SEE HER COMING DOWN THE STREET!
NOW I ASK YOU VERY CONFIDENTIALLY, AIN'T SHE SWEET?
AIN'T SHE NICE?, LOOK HER OVER ONCE OR TWICE
NOW I ASK YOU VERY CONFIDENTIALLY AIN'T SHE NICE?
JUST CAST AN EYE IN HER DIRECTION
OH, ME! OH, MY! AIN'T THAT PERFECTION?
I RE PEAT, DON'T YOU THINK THAT'S KIND OF NEAT?
AND I ASK YOU VERY CONFIDENTIALLY AIN'T SHE SWEET?
