Giovanni Mascellaro - Smoke gets in your eyes

Music by Jerome Kern Lyrics by Otto Harbach

They asked me how I knew
my true love was true, ah, ah.
I of course replied,
"Something here inside cannot be denied."
They said, "Someday you'll find
all who love are blind, ah, ah.
When your heart's on fire,
you must realize
smoke gets in your eyes."

So I chaffed them and I gayly laughed,
to think they could doubt my love.
Yet today, my love has flown away:
I am without my love.

Now laughing friends deride
tears I cannot hide, ah, ah.
So I smile and say,
"When a lovely flame dies,
smoke gets in your eyes,
smoke gets in your eyes."


Performed by Giovanni Mascellaro
