Sade - Smooth Operator

He's laughing with another girl and playing with another heart
Placing high stakes, making hearts ache, he's loved in seven languages
Jewel box life diamond nights and ruby lights, high in the sky
Heaven help him, when he falls


Diamond life, lover boy
We move 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
When 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, smooth operator, smooth operator
Coast to coast, LA to Chicago, western male
Across the north and south, to Key Largo, love for sale

Face to face, each 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 but his heart is cold

No need to ask. He's a smooth operator
Smooth operator, smooth operator, smooth operator
Coast to coast, LA to Chicago, western male
Across the north and south, to Key Largo, love for sale

Smooth operator...
There is no prosthetic for an amputated spirit
Lt Col Frank Slade (Al Pacino, Scent of a woman)
