Lyrics

Mr. Smooth Talker

Written By: Emily Musolino

on the corner of West Plantation
where the streetlights shine in the sky
if you’re quiet and listen closely
you can hear all the women cry
if you ask them about their sorrow
if you wonder why they despair
you need only look at the counter
see the silhouette standing there

(Chorus)
hey, Mr, Smooth Talker
did you swallow your silver tongue
did your lady finally leave you
when she noticed what you’ve become
hey, Mr. Allnighter
did she stand you up at the bar
Did you have one affair too many
Did you take just one step too far

His avenues of deception
Are simply works of art
But the pinstripes that he’s wearing
Mold a cage around his heart
Many times other fellas ask him
What’s the secret to your success
But underneath his rugged looks
There’s only emptiness

Chorus

Scatting

What’s come over ol’ Mr. Charming
Lately he doesn’t seem all there
Can’t you see the way he’s been staring
At the girl with the golden hair
Now he’s stumbling, chasing shadows,
And gazing at stars above
Oh Mr. Smooth Talker did she really put you under
Did you finally fall in love

hey, Mr, Smooth Talker
did you swallow your silver tongue
did your lady finally leave you
when she noticed what a scoundrel you’ve become
hey, Mr. Allnighter
did she stand you up at the bar
Did you have one affair too many
Did you take just one step too far
