Smooth Dancer
by Deep Purple



Black suede, don't mean you're good for me
Black suede, just brings your mystery
I want to be inside of you
But you're black and I don't know what to do

You're a smooth dancer
But it's alright
'Cause I'm a freelancer
And you can never break me though you try

To make me think you're magical
Baby, you're the one who can never see the sun
Because it don't shine nightly
Don't you look at me because I'm gonna shake free

You'd better hang on tightly
You want to rule the world,
But you're acting like a girl
Who's got a false pregnancy
You've swollen up inside
With nothing but your pride

And yet you keep on dancing
Black suede, don't waste your time on me
Black suede, I sense your mockery
I tried to go along with you

But you're black and I know just what to do
You're a smooth dancer
But it's alright
'Cause I'm a freelancer

And you can never break me though you try
To make me think you're magical
I think you're crazy, your two-timing ways
They don't bother me none

You'd better do it right because one day or night
I'm gonna walk to freedom
You know I loved you once and I want to love again
But you don't give nothing

You can see it in my eyes so you've got to realize
Baby, I ain't bluffing
Black suede, don't waste your time on me
Black suede, don't bring me misery

I tried to be inside of you
But you're black and now I know what to do
You're a smooth dancer
But it's alright

'Cause I'm a freelancer
And I can tell you're faking though you try
To make me think you're magical
Baby, you're the one who can never see the sun

Because it don't shine nightly
Don't you look at me because I'm gonna shake free
You'd better hang on tightly
You know I loved you once and I want to love again

But you don't give nothing
You can see it in my eyes so you've got to realize
Baby, I ain't bluffing
Baby, you can rock 'n' roll

But you can never show your soul, smooth dancer
