Smoke Gets In Your Eyes
Melodi: Jerome Kern - Tekst: Otta Harbach
They asked my how I knew my true love was true.
I of course replied:
"Something here indside cannot be denied."
They said "Some day 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 gaily 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."
Sangen stammer fra Broadway-musicalen 'Roberta' 1933. Musicalen blev filmatiseret i 1935 med Fred Astair og Ginger Rogers i hovedrollerne.
