"Smokey Joe's Café" as written by and Leiber/stoller....
One day when I was eating beans at Smokey Joe's Café
Sitting, digging on the scene at Smokey Joe's Café
A chick came walking through the door
That I had never seen before
Well, at least I'd never seen her down at Smokey Joe's Café
I started shaking when she sat right down next to me

Her knees were almost touching mine at Smokey Joe's Café
A chill ran up and down my spine at Smokey Joe's Café
I could smell here sweet perfume
She smiled at me, my heart went boom
Everybody in the room, at Smokey Joe's Café they said
"Now be careful, that chick belongs to Smokey Joe"

From behind the counter, there came a man
Chef's hat on his head and a knife in his hand
He grabbed me by the collar and he began to shout
"You better eat up all your beans and get right on out"

So now I'll never eat again at Smokey Joe's Café
So we'll never meet again at Smokey Joe's Café
I'd rather get my chili beans
At Jim's or Jack's or John's or Jean's
Than take my chances eating down at Smokey Joe's Café
I risked my life, when I messed with crazy Smokey Joe
