Smooth - Song Lyrics

Man it's a hot one
Like seven inches from the midday sun
I hear you whisper and the words melt everyone,
But you stay so cool
My Mu´┐Żequita, 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
Cause you're so smooth

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

Well I'll tell you one thing
If you would leave it 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
Turning you round and round

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