Lyrics:

"Smoke Gets in Your Eyes"

music by Jerome Kern and lyrics by Otto Harbach

 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 them as 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.
