Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

(Tune: "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes")

They asked me how I knew
My mayor was true
I of course replied
Something here inside
Cannot be denied

They said some day you'll learn
Politicians burn
When your trust is wise
You must realize
Smoke gets in your eyes

So I chaffed them
And I gayly laughed
To think they could doubt my trust
Yet today
My trust has flown away
My mayor is a bust

Now laughing friends deride
Tears I cannot hide
So I smile and say
A voter's trust can die
Smoke gets in your eyes
