Debonair lullabies in melodies revealed
in deep despair or lonely nights
he knows just how you feel
the slyest thymes the sharpest suits
in miracles made real.

Like a bird in flight
hot sweet night
you know you're right
just to hold her tight
he soothes it right
makes it out of sight
and everything's good in the world tonight
when Smokey sings I hear violins
when Smokey sings I forgot 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 sooth the rage
when lover's hearts catch fire.

Like a bird in flight
hot sweet night
you know you're right
just to hold her tight
he soothes it right
makes it out of sight
and everything's good in the world tonight
when Smokey sings I hear violins
when Smokey sings I forgot 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

Would it be true to say I need you bad
I need you bad today
