Sade - SMOOTH OPERATOR
"Diamond Life" album
Words and Music: Sade Adu and St. John


[Verse]
Dm              Dm/Db
He's laughing with another girl
Am7/C           Am7/Cb
And playing with another heart.
Dm              Dm/Db
Placing high stakes, making hearts ache.
Am7/C           Am7/Cb
He's loved in seven languages.
Dm              Dm/Db
Diamond nights and ruby lights, high in the sky.
Am7/C           Am7/Cb
Heaven help him, when he falls.

Dm      Am7  Gm7 Am7 Dm    Am7  Gm7 Am7          
Diamond life,           lover boy.
We move in space with minimum waste and maximum joy.
Dm      Am7  Gm7 Am7        Dm   Am7  Gm7 Am7 
City lights             and business nights.
     Dm      Am7  Gm7 Am7            Dm   Am7  Gm7 Am7
When you require streetcar desire for higher heights.

Gm7             Am7                    Dm     Dm/Db  Am7/C   Am7/B
No place for    beginners or sensitive hearts
Gm7             Am7            Dm     Dm/Db  Am7/C   Am7/B
When sentiment is left to chance.
Gm7             Am7                    Dm
No place to be ending but somewhere to start.
Fill A  

No need to ask.


[Chorus]
        Dm      Am7    Gm7    Am7
He's a smooth operator,
   Dm   Am7  Gm7 Am7   
smooth operator,
  Dm    Am7  Gm7 Am7   
smooth operator,
  Dm    Am7  Gm7 Am7  
smooth operator.
Dm      Am7  Gm7 Am7             Dm   Am7  Gm7 Am7
Coast to coast, LA to Chicago, western male.
Dm      Am7            Gm7       Am7      Dm   Am7  Gm7 Am7
Across the north and south, to Key Largo, love for sale.


[Verse]
Face to face, each classic case.

We shadow box and double cross,

Yet need the chase.
""Some where here is the guitar, sax solo" "Dorfun make it your own 
solo"

Gm7                     Am7    Dm   
A license to love, insurance to hold.
Gm7                             Am7       Dm 
Melts all your memories and change into gold.
Gm7                     Am7              Dm  
His eyes are like angels but his heart is cold.
Fill A
No need to ask.


[Chorus]
        Dm      Am7  Gm7 Am7  
He's a smooth operator,
  Dm    Am7  Gm7 Am7 
smooth operator,
  Dm    Am7  Gm7 Am7  
smooth operator,
  Dm    Am7  Gm7 Am7
smooth operator.
Dm      Am7  Gm7 Am7             Dm   Am7  Gm7 Am7
Coast to coast, LA to Chicago, western male.
Dm      Am7  Gm7 Am7             Dm   Am7  Gm7 Am7
Across the north and south, to Key Largo, love for sale.
  Dm    Am7  Gm7 Am7             Dm   Am7  Gm7 Am7
Smooth operator,
  Dm    Am7  Gm7 Am7             Dm   Am7  Gm7 Am7
smooth operator,
  Dm    Am7  Gm7 Am7             Dm   Am7  Gm7 Am7
smooth operator,
  Dm    Am7  Gm7 Am7             Dm   Am7  Gm7 Am7
smooth operator,
  Dm    Am7  Gm7 Am7             Dm   Am7  Gm7 Am7
smooth operator...
