Thursday/ sweet love (stay sweet)

Here’s another example of the little gift candy boxes that one’s coworker might hand out to you when he or she gets married.     The words on the box remind me of Queen’s raucous song ‘Sweet Lady’ from their album A Night at the Opera (lyrics below, not for the faint of heart!).   At the time of its release it was the most expensive album ever recorded.

Sweet Lady from A Night At The Opera (1975), words by Brian May

You call me up and treat me like a dog
You call me up and tear me up inside
You’ve got me on a lead
Ooh you bring me down you shout around
You don’t believe that I’m alone
Ooh you don’t believe me

Sweet lady sweet lady
Sweet lady stay sweet you say

You call me up and feed me all the lines
You call me sweet like I’m some kind of cheese
Waiting on the shelf
You eat me up you hold me down
I’m just a fool to make you a home
Ooh you really do and you say

Sweet lady sweet lady
Sweet lady ooh c’mon stay sweet

My sweet lady
Though it seems like we wait for ever
Stay sweet baby
Believe and we’ve got everything we need
Sweet lady sweet lady
Sweet lady stay sweet
Stay sweet sweet lady

Oh runaway come on
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Sweet lady
