Smokey Joe's Cafe

Wah, ah, Smokey Joe's Cafe
Wah, ah, Smokey Joe's Cafe

One day while I was eating beans at Smokey Joe's Cafe
Just sitting, digging on the scene at Smokey Joe's Cafe
A chick came walking through the door, that I had never seen before
At least I never saw her down at Smokey Joe's Cafe
And I started shaking when she sat right down next to me

Her knees were almost touching mine at Smokey Joe's Cafe
A chill was running down my spine at Smokey Joe's Cafe
I could smell her sweet perfume, she smiled at me, my heart went boom
Then everybody in the room at Smokey Joe's Cafe
They said, "Man, be careful! That chick belongs to Smokey Joe"

From behind the counter I saw a man
A chef's hat on his head and a knife in his hand
He grabbed me by my collar and he began to shout
"You'd better eat up all your beans and boy clear right on out!"

And I know I'll never eat again at Smokey Joe's Cafe
So we'll never meet again at Smokey Joe's Cafe
I'd rather eat my chili beans at Jim's or Jack's or John's or Gene's
Than take my chances eating down at Smokey Joe's Cafe
Why risk my life when that Smokey Joe's a crazy fool

Wah, ah, Smokey Joe's Cafe
Wah, ah, Smokey Joe's Cafe
Wah, ah, Smokey Joe's Cafe
Wah, ah, Smokey Joe's Cafe
