Smooth road, clear day

But why am I the only one

Travelin' this way

How starnge the road you love

Should be so easy

Can there be a detour ahead

Wake up, slow down

Before you crash Aand break your heart

Gullable clown

You fool, you're headin'

In the wrong direction

Can't you see the detour ahead

The further you travel

The harder to unravel

The way he spins around you

Turn back while there is time

Can't you see the danger sign

Soft shoulders surround you

Smooth road, clear night

Oh lucky me, that suddenly

I saw the light

I'm turning back away

From all this trouble

Smooth road, smooth road

No detour ahead
