  • When I picked you up for our first date baby
    Well, your pretty blue eyes, they were drivin' me crazy
    And the tiny little thought that was so amazing
    Is they were looking at me.

    I held open the car door for you then you climbed
    Inside and slid on over
    To the other side, I thought my, oh my

    Sweet thing
    The moon is high and the night is young
    Come on and meet me
    In the backyard under the Cottonwood tree
    It's a good thing and I'm wishing
    C'mon sweet thing
    Won't you climb on out of your window
    While the world is sleeping
    You know I need you
    And there's no way I'll be leaving
    'Till we're kissing on the porch swing
    Oh my little sweet thing

    Yeah I know I'm gonna see you first thing tomorrow
    But I just couldn't wait so I had to borrow
    Uncle Jake's Mustang, its his favorite car
    And so I can't stay long

    Standing here feeling like a love struck Romeo
    All I wanna do is hold you close and steal a little
    More time, is that such a crime?

    Sweet thing
    The moon is high and the night is young
    Come on and meet me
    In the backyard under the Cottonwood tree
    It's a good thing and I'm wishing
    C'mon sweet thing
    Won't you climb on out of your window
    While the world is sleeping
    You know I need you
    And there's no way I'll be leaving
    'Till we're kissing on the porch swing
    Oh my little sweet thing

    Oh my sweet thing
    Sweet thing, sweet thing

    Oh my sweet thing
    The moon is high and the night is young
    Come on and meet me
    In the backyard under the cottonwood tree
    It's a good thing and tell me I'm not dreaming
    C'mon sweet thing
    Won't you climb on out of your window
    While the world is sleeping
    Cause you know I need you
    And there's no way I'll be leaving
    'Till we're kissing on the porch swing
    Oh my little sweet thing

    Oh c'mon sweet thing, sweet thing, sweet thing, sweet thing

    Yeah, c'mon now a little now
    Do do do do do do do do do do do
    Oh my little sweet thing, yes you are
    Do do do do do do do do do do do Writer/s: Keith Urban, Monty Powell
