Sweeter than Pie

(Jennifer Noble & Kevin So & Howie Moscovitch)
(c) 2013 Annette Barkley, Jennifer Noble
Annette (Nettie) loves pie - she bakes them, wants to open a pie shop, her band is called "The Nashville Pieholes". I had written her an excited text-to-landline message saying "I just co-wrote a song called "A Little at a Time!". The first thing she said when we got into our writing room was "Oh, I wish I'd written that title - Sweeter than Pie" and I said "what are you talking about?" she said - "the message - the song - Sweeter than Pie" - "no", I said, "it was called A Little at a Time - So let's write Sweeter Than Pie right now!"

VERSE 1
M Sometimes I’m a little bit flakey
F (Aw) But that’s alright with me
M Been known to be fresh and tender

Cake may be tasty
But we tell no lies
Our live is sweeter
Sweeter Than Pie

VERSE 2
M Your lips are riper than cherries (BING!)
F Your touch is decadent

F The secret’s in the pastry
M Roll me like a ball
F Preheat my brand-new oven
M I can’t speak – at all

Cake may be tasty
But we tell no lies
Our live is sweeter

What we’re talkin’ bout ….. PIE!
