Sade - Smooth operator
Tekst en muziek: Sade Adu en Ray St. John
(1984)






Diamond life, lover boy
We move in space with minimum waste and maximum joy
City lights and business nights
When you require streetcar desire for higher heights



No place for beginners or sensitive hearts
When sentiment is left to chance
No place to be ending, but somewhere to start



No need to ask
He’s a smooth operator
Smooth operator

Coast to coast, LA to Chicago, western male
Across the north and south to Key Largo, love for sale



Face to face, each classic case
We shadow box and double cross
Yet need the chase



A license to love, insurance to hold
Melts all your memories, change into gold
His eyes are like angels, but his heart is cold



No need to ask
He’s a smooth operator
Smooth operator

Coast to coast, LA to Chicago, western male
Across the north and south to Key Largo, love for sale
