Debonair lullabies in melodies revealed

In deep despair on lonely nights

He knows just how you feel

The slyest rhymes - the sharpest suits

In miracles made real



Like a bird in flight on a hot sweet night

You know you're right just to hold her tight

He soothes it right - makes it outtasite

And everything's good in the world tonight!



When smokey sings - I hear violins

When smokey sings - I forget everything

As she's packing her things

As she's spreading her wings

The front door might slam

But the back door it rings

And smokey sings...he sings



Elegance in eloquence - for sale or rent or hire

Should I say - yes I match his best

Then I would be a liar

Symphonies that soothe the rage

When lovers hearts catch fire



Like a bird in flight on a hot sweet night

You know you're right just to hold her tight

He soothes it right - makes it outtasite

And everything's good in the world tonight!



When smokey sings - I hear violins

When smokey sings - I forget everything

As she's packing her things

As she's spreading her wings

Smashing the hell

With the heaven she brings

Then smokey sings...he sings



Luther croons

Sly's the original - originator

James screams

Marvin was the only innovator

But nothing can compare

Nothing can compare

When smokey sings



When smokey sings - I hear violins

When smokey sings - I forget everything

As she's packing her things

As she's spreading her wings

She threw back the ring

When smokey sings...

Smokey sings...

Smokey sings...
