Sade – Smooth Operator Lyrics


You pyonged “Sade – Smooth Operator”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]
Diamond life lover boy
He moves in space with minimum waste and maximum joy
City lights and business nights
When you require streetcar desire for higher heights

No place for beginners or sensitive hearts
Sentiment is left to chance
No place to be ending but somewhere to start

No need to ask
He's a smooth operator
Smooth operator

Coast-to-coast, L.A. to Chicago: Western male
Across the North and South, to Key Largo: love for sale

[Verse 2]
Face-to-face, each a classic case
We shadow box and double-cross

Yet need the chase
A license to love, insurance to hold
Melts all your memories and change into gold
His eyes are like angels'; his heart is cold
