Lyrics:
One day while I was eating beans at Smokey Joe's Caf‚,
Just sittin' diggin' all the scenes at Smokey Joe's Caf‚,
A chick came walkin' through the door
That I had never seen before
At least I never saw her down at Smokey Joe's Caf‚.
And I started shakin' when she sat right down next to me.

Her knees were almost touching mine at Smokey Joe's Caf‚,
A chill was runnin' down my spine at Smokey Joe's Caf‚,
I could smell her sweet perfume
She smiled at me, my heart went boom
Then everybody in the room at Smokey Joe's Caf‚,
Said "Man be careful, that chick belongs to Smokey Joe."

From behind the counter, I saw a man
A chef's hat on his head and a knife in his hand
He grabbed me by my collar and began to shout
"You better eat up all your beans, boy, and clear right on out!"

I know I'll never eat again at Smokey Joe's Caf‚,
And so we'll never meet again at Smokey Joe's Caf‚,
I'd rather eat my chili beans
At Jim's or Jack's or John's or Gene's
Then take my chances eating down at Smokey Joe's Caf‚,
Why risk my life when that Smokey Joe's a crazy fool.

Waah-aah, at Smokey Joe's Caf‚,
Waah-aah, at Smokey Joe's Caf‚,
Waah-aah, at Smokey Joe's Caf‚.
