"Smooth" as written by Larry Blackmon, David C. Weldon, Kevin F. Saunders and Bryan A. Thompson....
Man, it's a hot one
Like seven inches from the midday sun
Well, I hear you whispering in the words, to melt everyone
But you stay so cool
My muñequita, my Spanish Harlem, Mona Lisa
You're my reason for reason
The step in my groove

And if you said this life ain't good enough
I would give my world to lift you up
I could change my life to better suit your mood
Because you're so smooth

[Chorus]
And it's just like the ocean under the moon
Oh, it's the same as the emotion that I get from you
You got the kind of lovin' that can be so smooth, yeah
Give me your heart, make it real or else forget about it

But I'll tell you one thing
If you would leave it would be a crying shame
In every breath and every word
I hear your name calling me out
Out from the barrio
You hear my rhythm on your radio
You feel the turning of the world, so soft and slow
It's turning you round and round

And if you said this life ain't good enough
I would give my world to lift you up
I could change my life to better suit your mood
Because you're so smooth

[Chorus: x2]

Or else forget about it
Or else forget about it
Let's not forget about it
Give me your heart, make it real
Let's not forget about it
Let's not forget about it
Let's not forget about it
Let's not forget about it
Let's not forget about it

    General CommentMy husband sang this song to me while we danced to it at his friend's wedding in florida. we'd only been dating 6 months and he sang it with such passion (not on key though :) that I couldn't help but feel the vulnerability he must have felt at that time while we fell in love.

    5 years later, he hasn't changed.

    Red flag or what?

    I did give him my heart, i made it real, and HE forgot about it.
    I should have seen his insecurity from a mile away.
    take note if this song is dedicated to you, ladies.

    it is a FANTASTIC, genius song with the combo of Santana and Rob Thomas, however.
