Abc – When Smokey Sings lyrics

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 out of sight

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 and 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 out of sight

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

(Would it be true to say)

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
