Debonair lullabies in melodies revealed
He knows just how you feel
In miracles made real
Like a bird in flight on a hot sweet night
He soothes it right, makes it out of sight

When smokey sings, I forget everything
As she's spreading her wings
But the back door it rings

Should I say yes, I match his best
Symphonies soothe the rage

You know you're right just to hold her tight
And every thing's good in the world tonight
When smokey sings, I hear violins
As she's packing her things
Smashing the hell
Then smokey sings, he sings

Sly's the original, originator
Marvin was the only innovator
When smokey sings
When smokey sings, I hear violins
As she's packing her things
She threw back the ring
Smokey sings
