Swingin
LeAnn Rimes Lyrics


There's a little boy, in our neighborhood
His name is Charlie Jackson, and he's really lookin' good
I had to go and see him, so I called him on the phone
I walked over to his house, and this was goin' on

His brother was on the sofa, eatin' chocolate pie
His Momma was in the kitchen, cuttin' chicken up to fry
His Daddy was in the backyard, rollin' up a garden hose
I was on the porch with Charlie, feelin' love down to my toes
And we were swingin' (swingin')
Aw, yeah now we were swingin' (swingin')

Little Charlie he's as pretty as the angels when they sing
I can't believe I'm out here on his front porch in this swing
Just a swingin' (swingin')

Yeah, and we'll be swingin' (swingin')
Yes, we'll be swingin' (swingin')
Little Charlie he's as pretty as the angels when they sing
I can't believe I'm out here on his front porch in this swing
Just a swingin' (swingin')

Now Charlieshe's a darlin', she's the apple of my eye
When I'm on the swing with him, it makes me almost high
And Charlie is my lover, and he has been since the spring
I just can't believe it started on his front porch in this swing
Just a swingin'. (swingin')
Ah-just a swingin' (swingin')

Little Charlie he's as pretty as the angels when they sing
I can't believe I'm out here on his front porch in this swing
Just a swingin' (swingin')

I said Little Charlie he's as pretty as the angels when they sing
I can't believe I'm out here on his front porch in this swing
Just a swingin' (swingin') (swingin')

His name is Charlie Jackson and he's really lookin good
I had to go and see him so I called him on the phone
I walked over to his house and this was goin on
His brother was on the sofa eatin chocolate pie
His Momma was in the kitchen cuttin chicken up to fry
His Daddy was in the backyard rollin up a garden hose
I was on the porch with Charlie feelin love down to my toes
And we were swingin
Aw yeah now we were swingin
Little Charlie he's as pretty as the angels when they sing
I can't believe I'm out here on his front porch in this swing
Just a swingin

Now Charlie he's my darlin he's the apple of my eye
And when I'm on the swing with him it makes me almost high.
And Charlie is my loverman and he has been since the spring
I just can't believe it started on his front porch in this swing
Just a swingin
Aw yeah now we were swingin
Little Charlie he's as pretty as the angels when they sing
I can't believe I'm out here on his front porch in this swing
Just a swingin

On a sofa eatin chocolate pie
In the kitchen cuttin chicken up to fry
In the backyard rollin up a garden hose
Yeah feelin that love down to my toes
Yeah he's the apple of my eye
When I'm with him it makes me almost high
He's been here since this spring
On the front porch on this swing
Just a swingin oh yeah we were swingin
Well we were swingin
Oh now We were swingin
Yeah lil Charlie he's as pretty as the angels really sing
I can't believe l'm out here on this front porch in this swing

It's pretty rare when the cover is better than the original. LeAnn certainly didn't do the song any harm! And MAN! Can she dance!

Kendra Phipps

Sucked

Ronnie Bishop

Yes it’s hot and different from Johns.

Marty Klestadt

I've heard a number of covers that were IMO at least as good as the original, if not better.
To me, the best in terms of improvement over the original is Always Something There To Remind Me by Naked Eyes.
No offense to Dionne Warwick, but her(I believe original) version was done in the same style as I Say A Little Prayer For You, and I just didn't care for it, and could hardly believe it was the same song.

JT Roll

She really did a great job with the song and music video on this. :-)

Marty Klestadt

Excellent cover!
I think Charlie might have preferred to have been called handsome instead of pretty, but other than that, she did a fantastic job with it.

@Mike Anderson Good point.
I'd like to think my masculinity isn't toxic. I do what I can to try to avoid toxicity, actually.
Thanks for clearing that up for me.

Mike Anderson

I think toxic masculinity makes you think straight manly men can't/shouldn't be called pretty. Pretty boys get all the ladies they want. Leann could call me pretty all she wanted, and I'd be all for it. lol

Wayman Johnson

I declare that Mrs. Rhymes look as beautiful as any Woman that I have ever seen! She seemed to be really having genuine fun, that always draws out the true BEAUTY.

Andrew howell
