Smoke Gets In Your Eyes
Otto Harbach (w)
Jerome Kern (m)
Roberta, 1933
They asked me how I knew
My true love was true.
I of course replied,
Something here inside,
Cannot be denied.
They say 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 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,
So I smile and say,
When a lovely flame dies,
Smoke gets in your eyes.
