or
Henri René & His Orchestra

They asked me how I knew
My true love was true
Oh, I, of course, replied
Something here inside
Cannot be denied

They said someday you'll find
All who love are blind
Oh, 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 our 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,"
