Music Monday – I Hate To Look Into Those Eyes

Happy Monday and welcome back to #MusicMonday hosted by the fab Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek. And Drew, this one’s for you….

This track reminds me of GCSE Physics lessons at school as the girls I sat with introduced me to GnR…. I’ve got three different versions of this track (including the original) in my music library which I’ve linked to in the lyrics…

Sweet Child o’ Mine by Guns n’ Roses

She’s got a smile it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky
Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I’d stare too long
I’d probably break down and cry
Oh, oh, oh
Sweet child o’ mine
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love of mine


She’s got eyes of the bluest skies

As if they thought of rain
I hate to look into those eyes
And see an ounce of pain
Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
Where as a child I’d hide
And pray for the thunder
And the rain
To quietly pass me by
Oh, oh, oh
Sweet child o’ mine
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love of mine
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Sweet child o’ mine
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love of mine


Oh, oh, oh, oh
Sweet child o’ mine
Oh yeah yeah
Oh oh sweet love of mine

Where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Oh, oh
Where do we go?
(Where do we go now?)
Oh where do we go now? (Where do we go?)
Where do we go? (Sweet child)
Oh where do we go now?
Ay ay ay ay (where do we go now, where do we go)
Oh where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Oh, where do we go now?
Oh, where do we go?
Oh where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Oh, where do we go now?
No, no, no, no, no, no
Sweet child
Sweet child of mine
