Carlos Santana & Rob Thomas - Smooth - Live 1999



Rob Thomas from Matchbox Twenty wrote this with Itaal Shur, a songwriter and producer who has worked with Jewel, Robi Rosa and Maxwell


Many of the lyrics are Thomas' ode to his wife, the former Marisol Maldonado, who is Puerto Rican. "My Muñequita" translates to "My Little Doll" in Spanish; Thomas also calls her his "Spanish Harlem Mona Lisa." Marisol appears in the video.

Lyrics


Man, it's a hot one Like seven inches from the midday sun Well, I hear you whispering in the words, to melt everyone But you stay so cool My muñequita, my Spanish Harlem, Mona Lisa You're my reason for reason The step in my groove

And if you said this life ain't good enough I would give my world to lift you up I could change my life to better suit your mood Because you're so smooth

And it's just like the ocean under the moon Oh, it's the same as the emotion that I get from you You got the kind of lovin' that can be so smooth, yeah Give me your heart, make it real or else forget about it

But I'll tell you one thing If you would leave it would be a crying shame In every breath and every word I hear your name calling me out Out from the barrio You hear my rhythm on your radio You feel the turning of the world, so soft and slow It's turning you round and round

And if you said this life ain't good enough I would give my world to lift you up I could change my life to better suit your mood Because you're so smooth

And it's just like the ocean under the moon Oh, it's the same as the emotion that I get from you You got the kind of lovin' that can be so smooth, yeah Give me your heart, make it real or else forget about it

And it's just like the ocean under the moon Oh, it's the same as the emotion that I get from you You got the kind of lovin' that can be so smooth, yeah Give me your heart, make it real or else forget about it

Or else forget about it Or else forget about it Let's not forget about it Give me your heart, make it real Let's not forget about it Let's not forget about it Let's not forget about it Let's not forget about it Let's not forget about it
