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

One day while I was eatin' beans at Smokey Joe's Cafe
Just sittin', diggin' on the scene at Smokey Joe's Cafe
A chick came walkin' through the door, that I had never seen before
Atleast I never saw her down at Smokey Joe's Cafe
And I started shakin' when she sat right down next to me

Her knees were almost touchin' mine at Smokey Joe's Cafe
A chill was runnin' 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 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 boys 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
Oh, I'd rather eat my chilli beans at Jim's or Jack's or John's or Gene's
Than take my chances eatin' down at Smokey Joe's Cafe
Oh, I risked my life when that Smokey Joe went 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
