Sweet And Lovely
Thelonious Monk Lyrics


Sweet and lovely sweeter than the roses in May
Sweet and lovely heaven must have sent her my way
Skies above me never were as blue as her eyes
And she loves me, who would want a sweeter surprise

When she nestles in my arms so tenderly
There's a thrill that words cannot express
In my heart a song of love is taunting me, melody, haunting me
Sweet and lovely sweeter than the roses in May
And she loves me, there is nothing more I can say

Sweet and lovely sweeter than the roses in May
Sweet and lovely heaven must have sent her my way
Skies above me never were as blue as her eyes
And she loves me, who would want a sweeter surprise

When she nestles in my arms so tenderly
There's a thrill that words cannot express
In my heart a song of love is taunting me, melody, haunting me
Sweet and lovely sweeter than the roses in May
And she loves me, there is nothing more I can say

Monk re-invents old standards better than anyone.

Lucille Carra

Pure genius.

Absolute genius! It shocks me how few people have heard of Thelonious Monk, much less know his music. I have been a jazz fanatic for over 25 years now and I still haven’t found another musician in any genre that can hold a candle to T Monk!

agustin e. Alvarez

Monk in body and soul, exploring chords and notes of the melody with his unrepeatable genius. Charlie Rouse the best tenor sax of Monk in an excellent recreation of the theme, the rhythmic section as always at the height of the others.

Now to me,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,that's real funk. That's more funkier than James Brown and George Clinton. I never knew there could be so much "funk" in jazz until I listened to this song........Daaammmmnnnnnnn. I LOVE IT.

Wowwwww,,,,,,,,,,,Monk's left hand just kills me on this song.
