Smok Gets In Your Eyes

1933 – Otto Harbach / Jerome Kern

They asked me how I knew my true love was true,
I of course replied, something here inside cannot be denied
They said someday you’ll find all who love are blind,
When your heart’s on fire, you must realize,
Smoke gets in your eyes
So I chaffed and then I gaily laughed,
To think that 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,
So I smile and say when a lovely flame dies,
Smoke gets in your eyes
