HEDLEY


The Sweater Song Lyrics

She said, "Baby, don't leave.
Be home, stay close, be close to me.
Boy, don't be gone. Boy, don't be gone."
He said, "Baby, you know,
I gotta run. I gotta go.
I won't be long. Girl, I won't be long."

She said, "Boy don't you flirt
and, baby, please just don't get hurt
and if you feel alone, then here, take my shirt."
He said, "Forever, girl. I know you hate the weather, girl.
So, maybe you should hold onto my sweater, girl."

Na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na

She ran, picked up the phone,
said, "Babe, I miss you. Come back home.
It can't be long. Boy, it can't be long."
He said, "I hate this place.
I miss your smile. I miss your face.
I wrote a song. Girl, I wrote a song."

She said, "You make me better, boy.
I just mailed you a letter, boy
and, oh, so you know, I'm still in your sweater, boy."
He said, "Girl, don't be hurt.
I've sweat a lot and smell of dirt,
But I think I'd feel naked without your shirt."

Na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na

He said, "You're looking great.
I'm home. I'm back. I couldn't wait.
Girl, way too long. That was way too long."
She said, "Get over here.
I crave you close. I need you near.
Now play that song. Boy, play me our song."

He said, "Back to forever, girl.
I hope you endured the weather, girl.
Now all I wanna do is get you outta that sweater, girl."
She said, "I love the way you flirt.
I'm so glad you didn't get hurt.
Now let me see you naked, without that shirt."

My boyfriend and high school sweetheart is currently deployed in the military, we heard this song when he first found out when his leave was. It's been our song ever since.

First time I heard this song was with my boyfriend. He said it was about us. Everytime he leaves on a firecall I think of this song and I wrap myself in his sweater. I love you baby. Don't get hurt

I am a soldier and this song came out right around my first deployment. I have been giving my girlfriend my sweaters since we were in high school. I feel like she's in my arms whenever I hear this.

I am a Marine Wife and this song hits home to me. While I have not been through a deployment, my husband and I were apart a lot when we were dating. I am lucky to have him with me for good.
