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 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 every thing's good in the world tonight.

ABC - When Smokey Sings (Letras y canción para escuchar) - Debonair lullabies in melodies revealed. In deep despair on lonely nights. He knows just how you feel. The slyest rhymes - the sharpest suits. As she's spreading her wings. The front door might slam. But the back door it rings. Elegance in eloquence - for sale or rent or hire. Should I say - Yes I match his best.
