From candles burning, shadows in the night
People praying for eternal life
But my mind just keeps on wandering
Away from this serene and hallowed place
To a woman's face

She was lovely, lovely as a dream
She had the beauty, the beauty of a queen
They say that every man who meets her sooner or later will fall
Even me that they call

The master of invention, the painter of our times
I can take you round the Heavens and show you how to fly
'Twas a moment caught forever, there was something in her eyes
But I wish I could remember why Mona Lisa smiled

She sat before me, this woman so divine
Something eternal was shining in her eyes
Oh, Lisa del Giocondo, you opened up a world of mystery
When you were looking at me

The master of invention, the painter of our times
I can take you 'round the Heavens and show you how to fly
'Twas a moment caught forever, there was something in her eyes
But I wish I could remember why Mona Lisa smiled

Shame the devil in my heart but I can't stop thinking about her
And what she's doing to me, doing to me
'Twas a moment of perfection, the canvas never lies
But I wish I could remember why Mona Lisa smiled

Why Mona Lisa smiled?
Why Mona Lisa smiled?
Why Mona Lisa smiled?
