Smooth

Curly Joe DeRita
We started this song ages ago, and the first cut just wasn't right, so it sat on the shelf.

Finally, the right words and samples came to me, and I was able to finish it off. I think the results are very Smooth. Carlos Santana would agree, I'm sure... ;-)

Lyrics  (samples in red)
Original Lyrics
Man, you’re a bald one
Like Yul Brenner in the midday sun
You walk around and the glare
Blinds everyone
You think you’re so cool
You wanna be a, another Curly Joe de Rita
Break out that S.E. Johnson Beeswax, you know
A little dab’ll - do
Yea

And if you told me, “This wax ain’t good enough”
I would pick my ears to give you what I could scrape
Earwax to better coat your grooves
Your forehead’s so smooth

And it’s just like a melon, picked too soon
It’s big and white and shiny like the Clair de Lune
You got the kind of forehead that can be so smooth, yeah
You tried some Rogaine but it failed, so just forget about it

I’ll tell you one thing
A head like that sure needs some sunscreen
Like SPF nine-hundred-four, teen I see freckles forming with-out
And when you walk home, you hear the kids all call you chrome dome
You turn your head and angle it straight at the sun
Makes those kids run - and run

But if you told them, “This wax ain’t good enough”
They would pick their ears to give you what they could scrape
Earwax to better coat your grooves
Your forehead’s so smooth

And it’s just like a melon, picked too soon
It’s big and white and shiny like the Clair de Lune
You got the kind of forehead that can be so smooth, yeah
You tried some Rogaine but it failed, so just forget about it

You may find this hard to believe, but in my salad days, my crowning glory was a bright shock of strawberry blonde curls. Oh, I was big man on campus until my senior year… when I became as bald as a plucked chicken. You see, Simpson, I too know the sting of male pattern baldness.

Just like a melon, picked too soon
It’s big, it’s white, it’s shiny like the Clair de Lune
You got the kind of forehead that can be so smooth, yeah
You tried some Rogaine but it failed, so just forget about it
Yeah

So  just forget about it
So  just forget about it
Let’s just forget about it
(You tried some Rogaine but it failed)
Let’s just forget about it
(You tried some Rogaine but it failed)
Let’s just forget about it
(You tried some Rogaine but it failed)
 Let’s just forget about it
(You tried some Rogaine but it failed)
Let’s just forget about it

(Burns) Have the Rolling Stones killed. (Smithers) But sir, those aren't... (Burns) Do as I say!
Man it's a hot one
Like seven inches from the midday sun
Well I hear you whisper and the words
Melt everyone
But you stay so cool
My mu equita my Spanish Harlem Mona Lisa
You're my reason for reason
The step in my groove
Yea

And if you say, "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 just like the ocean under the moon
Well it's the same as the emotion that I get from you
You got the kind of lovin' that can be so smooth, yeah
Gimme your heart, make it real
Or else forget about it

I'll tell you one thing
If you would leave it would be a crying shame
In every breath and every word I hear your name callin' me out
Out from the barrio you hear my rhythm from your radio
You feel the turning of the world so soft and slow
Turning you round and round

And if you say, "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 just like the ocean under the moon
Well it's the same as the emotion that I get from you
You got the kind of lovin' that can be so smooth, yeah
Gimme your heart, make it real
Or else forget about it

And just like the ocean under the moon
Well it's the same as the emotion that I get from you
You got the kind of lovin' that can be so smooth, yeah
Gimme your heart make it real
Or else forget about it
Yeah

Or else forget about it
Or else forget about it
Or else forget about it
(Gimme your heart make it real)
Or else forget about it
(yeah)
Let's don' forget about it
(Oh, no, no)
(Oh)
Let's don' forget about it
(Oh, no, no)
(Oh)
Let's don' forget about it
(yeah)
(Ahh, Ohh)
Let's don' forget about it
(Yeah, yeah)
