R ead the lyrics. Are the words in red the same as in the song?

Diamond life, lover boy
He move in space with minimum weight and maximum joy
City lights and business nights
When you require streetcar desire for higher flies

No place for beginners or sensitive ears
When sentiment is left to luck
No place to be ending but somewhere in the dark

No need to ask
He’s a smooth operator
Smooth operator, smooth operator
Smooth operator

Coast to coast, LA to Chicago, western male
Across the north and south, to Key Largo, love for sale

Face to face, each classic case
We shadow box and double cross
Yet need the chase

A license to love, insurance to hole
Melts all your memories and change into cold
His eyes are like angels but his heart is gold

No need to ask
He’s a smooth operator
Smooth operator, smooth operator
Smooth operator

Coast to coast, LA to Chicago, western male
Across the north and south, to Key Largo, love for sale

Smooth operator, smooth operator
(SADE)

    First of all I have to say that I don’t like this song but I have heard it thousands of times because my father loves Sade’s music. He is always listening Sade in his car or while he is having a rest on the sofa. In spite of all this, I didn’t know the lyrics of this song because I hadn’t paid attention until this moment. Well, according to the question:
    – The words in red are not the same as in the song. This are the true words:

    weight = waste
    flies = heights
    ears = hearts
    luck = chance
    in the dark = to start
    hole = hold
    cold = gold
    gold = cold

    Well, in a famous radio program they say that, in reality, Sade says “es una porrera”. Jokes apart, “wheight” is the same, “flies” is “hights”, but I’m not sure. “ears” is “eyes”, “Luck” is “chance”, “in the dark” is “to start”, “hole” is the same, “cold” is “gold” and “gold” is “cold”. So, more or less is that!

    I suggest for the next, if you can find it, “Elected” of Bruce Dickinson and Mr. Bean, it’s a funny song about elections in Britain, with a good speech of Mr. Bean.

    I like it, but I´d rather prefer Sophie Ellis Bextor, anyway,
    weight=the same
    flies=high
    ears=eyes
    luck=chance
    in the dark=to start
    hole=hold
    cold=gold
    gold=cold

    Well, I’ve heard this song many times but i haven’t paid attention to the lyrics. I think it’s:
    -weight=weight
    -flies=high
    -ears=eyes
    -luck=jail
    -in the dark=to start
    -hole=hold
    -cold=gold
    -gold=cold

    I was looking for more songs and I’ve just found this web. Most of you may already know it. For me, a really great discover.

    I think most of the words in red aren’t the same:
    weight=weight/flies=highs?/ears=eyes/luck=chance/in the dark= to start/hole=whole?/cold=gold/gold=cold. I love this song, thank you.

  11. vgr10 said

    I think these are the words:

    – weight is the same
    – flies= high
    – ears= parts
    – luck= jump
    – in the dark= to start
    – hole= hold
    – cold= gold
    – gold= cold

    And one question, where are the solutions for checking?
