"Smoke Gets In Your Eyes"
(Otto Harbach / Jerome Kern)

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

They said someday you'll find
All who love are blind
Oh oh
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
Oh oh
So I smile and say
When a lovely flame dies
Smoke gets in your eyes

Oh oh
Smoke gets in your eyes
Oh oh
