Sarah Vaughan/The Count Basie Orchestra – Smoke Gets In Your Eyes lyrics

They, they ask me how I knew
My true love was true
I of course reply, something inside
Cannot be denied

They said, some day you'll find
All who love are blind
When your heart's on fire you must realize
Smoke gets in your eyes

So I chaffed them and I gaily laughed
To think they could doubt
To think they could doubt my love

But today my love has flown away
I am without my love

Now laughing friends deride
Tears I cannot hide, so I smile and say
When a lovely flame dies
Smoke gets in your eyes

But today, my love has flown away
I am without
I'm without my love

And now, laughing friends deride
Tears I cannot hide, so I smile and say
When a lovely flame dies
Smoke gets in your eyes
