  • Honey honey, how you thrill me, a-ha, honey honey
    Honey honey, nearly kill me, a-ha, honey honey
    I'd heard about you before
    I wanted to know some more
    And now I know what they mean, you're a love machine
    Oh, you make me dizzy
    Honey honey, let me feel it, a-ha, honey honey
    Honey honey, don't conceal it, a-ha, honey honey
    The way that you kiss good night
    The way that you hold me tight
    I feel like I wanna sing when you do your thing
    I don't wanna hurt you baby, I don't wanna see you cry
    So stay on the ground girl, you better not get too high
    But I'm gonna stick to you boy, you'll never get rid of me
    There's no other place in this world where I rather would be
    Honey honey, touch me baby, a-ha, honey honey
    Honey honey, hold me baby, a-ha, honey honey
    You look like a movie star (look like a movie star)
    But I know just who you are (I wonder just who you are)
    And honey, to say the least, you're a doggone beast
    So stay on the ground girl, you better not get too high

    There's no other place in this world where I rather would be
    Honey honey, how you thrill me, a-ha, honey honey
    Honey honey, nearly kill me, a-ha, honey honey
    I'd heard about you before (I'd heard about you before)
    I wanted to know some more (I wanted to know you some more)
    And now I know what they mean, you're a love machine Oh, you make me dizzyWriter/s: Stig Erik Leopold Anderson, Benny Goran Bror Andersson, Bjoern K. Ulvaeus

  • Shawn from Green Bay WiThis is the cotton-candy pop side of Abba that they are probably more known for in Sweden than in the States. Very catchy and beyond cute with the two beauties singing it despite the fact that it is actually an overtly sexual song and could have been turned into something far different in another's hands.
    For me, the "a-ha" prior to "honey honey" actually makes the song. There is something so sweet and feminine in that expression.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn November 17th 1974, ABBA played their first concert* outside Sweden when they appeared at the Kalkonerteater in Copenhagen...
    And exactly five years later on November 17th, 1979 the Guinness Book of World Records verified that the quartet as the biggest-selling recording vocal group in history, with more than 200 million records sold...
    * The day before the Copenhagen concert the group's "Honey, Honey" was at #95 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart and that was also its last day on the chart; a little over three weeks earlier on October 20th it had peaked at #27 {for 2 weeks} and it stayed on the Top 100 for 10 weeks.
  • Larry from Coral Springs, FlMy mom and dad like abba's music..So one day my mom thought this song would be nice at a wedding. To dance to,yes. But not walk down the isle to.
  • Tc from Rhinelander, WiMade a deal with a buddy of mine, at a bar that had karaoke, that we'd each go up and sing a song that the other picked out. We are horrible singers and we didn't know the song that each had picked for the other until we got on stage. I gave him this song since I'd heard it on satelite radio earlier. He absolutely bombed. He couldn't stop laughing and neither could I or the others in the bar. I had to sing Brandi you're a fine girl........ bombed.
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandPolly Brown, who was the female singer with Pickettywitch and did the original version of Tina Charles' "Dance Little Lady, Dance", had to black up for her time in Sweet Dreams, something which woul not be allowed nowadays!
  • Shamomo Apolo Onono from Liverpool, OhI just love this song...haha first comment!
