How Sweet It Is has a great vibe that makes you want to snap your finger and sing along.

Played in G, this song uses a down up stop up down up stop up pattern which creates a sort of shuffle feel to it. As you'll see in the demo, there are places where you'll want to do a steady up and down shuffle to simulate a drum roll.

There is a sax break in this song but you could either pick out a melody riff or just hummmm your way thru that section.

How Sweet It Is Lyrics

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I needed the shelter of someone's arms and there you were
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs and there you were
With sweet love and devotion, deeply touching my emotion
I want to stop and thank you baby. I want to stop and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you.

I close my eyes at night wondering where would I be without you in my life
Everything I did was just a bore, everywhere I went it seems I'd been there before
But you brighten up for me all of my days .... with a love so sweet in so many ways
I want to stop and thank you baby
I just want to stop and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you, feels so fine
How sweet it is to be loved by you.

You were better for me than I was for myself
For me, there's you and there ain't nobody else
I want to stop and thank you baby. I just want to stop and thank you baby, yes I do

How sweet it is to be loved by you. How sweet it is to be loved by you
Feels so fine, how sweet it is to be loved by you
Just like jelly baby, oh yeah, how sweet it is to be loved by you
Just like honey to the bee, babe, how sweet it is to be loved by you
