They asked me how I knew my true love was true

I, of course, replied something here inside cannot be denied, oh, no!

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.

Oh, 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 gone 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.

(When a lovely flame dies)

Da, da-da, da-du-da.

Ba-da-da, da-du-da, da-da.

Ba-da-da, da-du-da, aah-aah.

Smoke gets in your eyes!
