Smash Cast - A Thousand And One Nights Lyrics




[Dev:]
Darling, the hands of time must always point ahead, yesterday's passed
Today has come and gone, the secret of tomorrow's coming fast
Which bedtime story shall I sing to you when we turn out the lights?
One of eternity or one of just a thousand and one nights?
Is there a mystic with the answers from above?
Is there a goddess with the hourglass of love?
So many questions swirling all around my heart
Is this the end or just the start?
Will I shower you with riches every year the night we met?
Will you take my heart or melt it likes it's gold?
Will our love go on forever or is this all that we get?
Is tonight the last or does the future hold
A lifetime of delights
Or just a thousand and one nights?
[Karen:]
Darling, you seem to think that I'm the only who has to choose
That you are in control and get to set the rules of win or lose
The bedtime story that I'll sing to you when we turn out the lights
May bring eternity or maybe just a thousand and one nights
There is no mystic with the answers from above
You know the secrets for the way to keep my love
There are a thousand and more ways to win my heart
The list is long but for a start
You can shower me with riches every year the night we met
I may take your heart and melt it like it's gold
Play in someone's perfumed garden and this night's the last you'll get
Play your cards right and your future just might hold
A lifetime of delights
Or just a thousand and one nights
Just a thousand and one nights
[Karen:]
The man who never chooses finds himself without a choice
[Dev:]
The lucky ones appear to have it all
[Karen:]
The tiger's just a kitten when his tamer finds her voice
[Dev:]
I surely will obey you when you call
[Ensemble:]
Then will you shower me with riches every year the night we met?
Will you take my heart and melt it likes it's gold?
Will our love go on forever or is this all that we get?
Is tonight the last or does the future hold
A lifetime of delights
Or just a thousand and one nights
Just a thousand and one nights

  1. Elsie M. Florence

    Okay but why wasn't this guy cast as Aladdin. At least this guy can sing and dance

    Nate From Canada

    He's busy with Lost in Space on Netflix

  2. Bunni Armani

    I'd sell my soul for that turquoise dress at 2:23. I love Indian movies, clothes, jewelry, music, and the dances - the more classic dances and not the Michael Jackson imitators.

  3. DocDGreat SixNine

    This is my favorite number in SMASH when it was still on. The other is 20th century fox mambo. There was some backlash about it back in the day and people did not like the Bollywood number. I feel this scene was well made and it is timeless. I still feel entertained listening to the song and enjoy watching the video. People nitpicked on this scene and I did not understand why they hated this and some even found it offensive. Kat did a wonderful job here showcasing her talent to sing and dance, she looks beautiful at every scene. The other actors were all good. Too bad they had to cancel it after 2 seasons.

    is this video problematic in us? im simply curious. White woman dressed as hindu

    My opinion doesn’t matter H

    Is the attire religious (Hindu) or cultural (Indian)? I'm not familiar enough with either to know without doing some research, but I do know that Hindu and Indian are not the same thing.

  5. Hey Ma

    Always a fav

  6. Ben Loudermilk

    NBC made a HUGE mistake when they cancelled SMASH!!..The audience for this show is even bigger now than it was for the actual run..

  7. La'Keisha Johnson

    I really hate that this series got cancelled after 2 season.

  8. Jessica Jones

    I miss this show so much. I wish it would have lasted longer than 2 seasons.

    Ma.ryamx

    What is the movie called ???

    Jessica Jones

    @Ma.ryamx It was a show on NBC a few years ago called SMASH. It lasted only 2 seasons before it was cancelled.

  9. Lauren

    How much did this cost lmao

  10. jpad319

    Where’s Tala Ashe from Legends of Tomorrow in this segment? I hear she once participated here and she’ll have a Bollywood-themed episode for LoT centered around her.

    XQ Yang

    That's her at 1:48

    Lauren

    jpad319 I came here for the same reason! I watched smash but I didn’t know tala was in it!

  11. ladyshkspre
