Something Up My Sleeve is the fifth studio album by the American country music singer-songwriter Suzy Bogguss, released in 1993 on Liberty Records. Something Up My Sleeve produced two Top 10 singles: "Just Like the Weather" and "Hey Cinderella", which Bogguss co-wrote with Grammy-nominated songwriters Matraca Berg and Gary Harrison. Two other singles, "You Wouldn't Say That to a Stranger" and "Souvenirs", were less successful, both failing to make Top 40.

The album was originally titled, "Diamonds and Tears". [2]

The UK release included the bonus track "Take It to the Limit," which Bogguss recorded for the Eagles tribute album, Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles.

Critical reception[edit]

Bryan Buss of AllMusic wrote that it was " one of Suzy Bogguss' finest and most consistent albums."[1]
