"Smokey Joe's Café" as written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller....
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 I'd never seen before
Came walkin' on in through the door
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 chair was there right next to 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"

Then 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"
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
