"Ain't She Sweet" is a song composed by Milton Ager (music) and Jack Yellen (lyrics) and published in 1927 by Edwin H. Morris & Co., Inc./Warner Bros., Inc. It became popular in the first half of the 20th century, one of the hit songs that typified the Roaring Twenties. Like "Happy Days Are Here Again" (1929), it became a Tin Pan Alley standard. Both Ager and Yellen were elected to membership in the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Milton Ager wrote "Ain't She Sweet" for his daughter Shana Ager, who in her adult life was known as the political commentator Shana Alexander.

Ain't She Sweet

Ain't she sweet? See her walking down that street.
Yes I ask you very confidentially, ain't she sweet?
Ain't she nice? Look her over once or twice.
Yes I ask you very confidentially, ain't she nice?
Just cast an eye in her direction, oh me oh my, ain't that perfection?
Oh I repeat, well, don't you think that's kinda neat?
Yes I ask you very confidentially, ain't she sweet?

    Steve,  I thought because the beatles recorded it,  it could be considered rock.  They did a really bad job of it.

    I did not know the Beatles recorded it Your right Rock They recorded it , I remember it from my child hood , Grandpa ,Grandma and Mom and Dad memories And love the original music , With all due respect for each their own , but it will always be roaring 20s for me , I love the way John does it he’s right on . I hear my kids telling me from time to time about a brand new song they are into just to learn that its a old song remake , most of the time I do not burst there bubble I let them think its brand new unless I am singing it and they want to know why I am not doing it right , LOL then I tell them HA !

    I was not offended I believe in people doing there own thing although it hurts when they do it badly , Remember when Ben Coler did There goes my everything , He actually did a great job on it but at the same time ruined it , Cause I could not get out of my head there goes my batman ring and she stepped on my hand and so on , I am just now doing that song again the right way , I guess I need to word my response’s so people don’t think I am offended , Sometimes things don’t come out the way it was intended , I reread my post and it does sound somewhat grumpy sorry .

    I like it much better as a swing tune than the even-eights Beatles version. But, that’s probably because I heard the swing version first. There is actually a great version of the three remaining Beatles in the park, with Paul singing while George harmonizes and plays the uke. This is actually one of my favorite renditions.

    Now that is much better than the first version!
