The Platters - Smoke gets in your eyes
Tekst: Otto Harbach / Muziek: Jerome Kern
(1958)






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



They said: “Someday you’ll find
All who love are blind
Oh, when your heart’s on fire
You must realise
Smoke gets in your eyes”



So, I chaffed them and I gaily laughed
To think they could doubt my love
Yet today my love has flown away
I am without my love
Without my love



Now laughing friends deride
Tears I cannot hide
Oh, so I smile and say
“When a lovely flame dies
Smoke gets in your eyes”
Smoke gets in your eyes
Smoke gets in your eyes



“Smoke gets in your eyes”
