I love the smell

I love the smell
Of good perfume
What a nice fragrance
It adds to a room

I love the smell
Of anything baking
Cookies, cakes
Whatever you’re making

I love the smell
Of clothes on the line
And newborn babies
With powder are fine

I love the smell
Of a brand new car
And the pungent smell
Of a big cigar

A street just paved
The smell of hot tar
Appeals to me
I know it's bizarre

The smell of popcorn
Who can resist
I'll buy a big bag
No need to insist

That crisp clean air
I love at dawn
And the smell of grass
On a newly cut lawn

But the ocean breeze
I smelled no more
When I moved away
From the Jersey Shore
