“The Sweet Escape” is a song by American singer and songwriter Gwen Stefani from her second studio album of the same name (2006). It was written by Stefani, Akon, and Giorgio Tuinfort. Akon, who is also a featured artist, developed the song’s beat before collaborating with Stefani. He designed it based on her previous work with No Doubt, and Stefani later commented that it put her “on the yellow brick road to the No Doubt record I might do”. “The Sweet Escape” is an apology for a fight between two lovers and describes a dream of a pleasant life for them. As the album’s title track, its title was chosen to help market Stefani’s music and fashion lines.

“The Sweet Escape” was released as the album’s second single on December 19, 2006, and was commercially successful in mainstream and adult contemporary markets. It reached the top 10 of most singles charts and topped the New Zealand Singles Chart. The song was nominated for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals at the 50th Grammy Awards. In the song’s accompanying music video, Stefani attempts to escape from a golden prison.

[Intro: Akon]
Konvict, Konvict, Konvict
Woo-hoo, yee-hoo
Woo-hoo, yee-hoo
Woo-hoo, yee-hoo
Woo-hoo, yee-hoo

[Verse 1: Gwen Stefani]
If I could escape, I would
But first of all, let me say
I must apologize for acting stank and treating you this way
‘Cause I’ve been acting like sour milk all on the floor
It’s your fault, you didn’t shut the refrigerator
Maybe that’s the reason I’ve been acting so cold

[Chorus: Gwen Stefani]
If I could escape (Escape)
And recreate a place that’s my own world (Own world)
And I could be your favorite girl (Forever), perfectly together
And tell me boy, now wouldn’t that be sweet? (Sweet escape)
If I could be sweet (Be sweet)
I know I’ve been a real bad girl (I’ll try to change)
I didn’t mean for you to get hurt (Whatsoever)
We can make it better
And tell me boy, now wouldn’t that be sweet?
(Sweet escape, sweet escape)

[Refrain: Akon]
(Woo-hoo, yee-hoo, woo-hoo, yee-hoo)
I wanna get away (Get away) to our sweet escape (Sweet escape)
(Woo-hoo, yee-hoo, woo-hoo, yee-hoo)
I wanna get away (Get away), yeah (Yeah)

[Verse 2: Gwen Stefani]
You melt me down, I’m at my lowest boiling point
Come help me out, I need to get me out of this joint
Come on, let’s bounce, counting on you to turn me around
Instead of clowning around, let’s look for some common ground
So baby, times get a little crazy
I’ve been gettin’ a little lazy
Waitin’ on you to come save me
I can see that you’re angry by the way that you treat me
Hopefully you don’t leave me, wanna take you with me

[Chorus: Gwen Stefani]
If I could escape (Escape) and recreate a place that’s my own world (Own world)
And I could be your favorite girl (Forever), perfectly together
And tell me boy, now wouldn’t that be sweet? (Sweet escape)
If I could be sweet (Be sweet)
I know I’ve been a real bad girl (I’ll try to change)
I didn’t mean for you to get hurt (Whatsoever)
We can make it better
And tell me boy, now wouldn’t that be sweet?
(Sweet escape, sweet escape)

[Bridge: Gwen Stefani & (Akon)]
(Woo-hoo, yee-hoo, woo-hoo, yee-hoo)
If I could escape
(Woo-hoo, yee-hoo, woo-hoo, yee-hoo)
If I could escape
‘Cause I’ve been acting like sour milk all on the floor
It’s your fault you didn’t shut the refrigerator
Maybe that’s the reason I’ve been acting so cold

[Chorus: Gwen Stefani]
If I could escape (Escape) and recreate a place that’s my own world (Own world)
And I could be your favorite girl (Forever), perfectly together
And tell me boy, now wouldn’t that be sweet? (Sweet escape)
If I could be sweet (Be sweet)
I know I’ve been a real bad girl (I’ll try to change)
I didn’t mean for you to get hurt (Whatsoever)
We can make it better
And tell me boy, now wouldn’t that be sweet?
(Sweet escape, sweet escape)

[Refrain: Akon]
(Woo-hoo, yee-hoo, woo-hoo, yee-hoo)
I wanna get away (Get away) to our sweet escape (Sweet escape)
(Woo-hoo, yee-hoo, woo-hoo, yee-hoo)
I wanna get away (Get away), yeah (Yeah)

[Outro: Akon]
(Woo-hoo, yee-hoo, woo-hoo, yee-hoo)
(Woo-hoo, yee-hoo, woo-hoo, yee-hoo)
