Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

Play

They asked me how I knew
My true love was true
Ohhhhhh oohhhhhh
I of course replied
Something here inside
Cannot be denied

They said someday you'll find
All who love are blind
Ohhhhhh oohhhhhh
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 all love
Yet today my love has flown away
I am without my love

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

Ohhhhhh oohhhhhh
Smoke gets in your eyes
Ohhhhhh oohhhhhh
