"Smokey Joe's Cafe" as written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller....
Waa-aah, at Smokey Joe's Café
Waa-aah, at Smokey Joe's Café

One day while I was eating beans (at Smokey Joe's Café)
Just sittin', diggin' all them scenes (at Smokey Joe's Café)
A chick came walking through the door
That I had never seen before
At least I'd never saw her down (at Smokey Joe's Café)
And I started shakin' when she sat right now next to me

Her knees were almost touching mine (at Smokey Joe's Café)
A chill was running down my spine (at Smokey Joe's Café)
I could smell her sweet perfume
She smiled at me, my heart went boom
Then everybody in the room (at Smokey Joe's Café)
They said "man be careful, that chick belongs to Smokey Joe"

'Till from behind the counter, I saw a man
A chef hat on his head and a knife in his hand
He grabbed me by the collar and began to shout
"You'd better eat up all your beans, boy and clear right on out"
Yes, I know I'll never eat again (at Smokey Joe's Café)
And so we'll never meet again (at Smokey Joe's Café)
I'd rather eat my chili beans
At Jack's or John's or Jim's or Jean's
Than taking my chances eating down (at Smokey Joe's Café)
I risked my like with that Smokey Joe's a crazy fool

Waa-aah, at Smokey Joe's Café
Waa-aah, at Smokey Joe's Café
Waa-aah, at Smokey Joe's Café
Waa-aah, at Smokey Joe's Café
