Sweet As It Is VS 1: We walk down the same street Whistling a new tune Watching that old moon rise up It’s been a day to remember Making new memories (We) Stare into the embers. Burning long BR 1: We can love this time together And we stand in the weather Warming our bones with the wine When we hang with one another
 (I )Want to stay forever
 Thawing our souls ‘round the fire VS 2: We're cut from the same cloth
 Singing with one voice
 Catching ourselves out over and over again Whenever we close our eyes Dream of a better life Wishing the good vibes would never end CH: Sweet, sweet, sweet. Sweet as it is. Sweet. Sweet, sweet, sweet. Sweet as it is. VS 3: Everybody does it
 You know it’s true
 Just take a look around you BR 2: We can love this time together And we stand in the weather Warming our bones with the wine Now is our time CH: Sweet, sweet, sweet. Sweet as it is. Sweet. Sweet, sweet, sweet. Sweet as it is. Sweet, sweet, sweet. Sweet as it is. Sweet. Sweet, sweet, sweet. Sweet as it is. (With) Sugar and spice and everything nice.
 Honey-cream, melted moments dripping in my mind (and) That's fine Sugar and spice, everything nice.
 Melted moments dripping in my mind Now is our time

about

Anyone for Tutti Frutti?
In many ways the new single ‘Sweet As It Is’ encapsulates the feel-good spirit that lives in all of Cousin Leonard’s music. A pure celebration of the good times spent with family and friends, old and new. It is instantly catchy, evoking an uplifting sense of familiarity with gratifying satisfaction.
Musically, the song is filled with all the signature wholesome sounds that epitomize CL.
Rich vocal harmonies, acoustic guitars, trombone, percussion and a trickle of rocking bass. Wrap this all together with a selection of funky beats, studio treats and an assortment of other tasty original additives and what we have here is a fun-time pop song to sing along to and enjoy.
As a simple conversation of sorts, 'Sweet As It Is' looks at our place in the world and making time to be joyous. For the love of life and all it’s natural treasures. Cherishing and preserving all that we have.
Above all, this song is a point of fond reflection to what we really are and how we can all just be.

The initial ideas for this song were brought to the kitchen table by Gian Wagland, at his and his wife Cloudy Davey's family home in Bethany, Barossa Valley, SA. On the eve of 'Gourmet Weekend' 2014, we laughed, we cried, we drank, we shared a wholesome meal together and we sang the night away. Tom re-wrote and rearranged a few different versions of the song in the ensuing years and CL did try these out live on stage a handful of times. Now, this time, with Marty and old family friend Bart Bee, the Williams Brothers have put together a rendition that we hope all will enjoy.
