…όπου οι Isaac Hayes & Marvell Thomas μετατρέπουν το τραγούδι των Bacharach / David [για την Dionne Warwick] σε 12λεπτο epic. Σε ένα άλμπουμ από εκείνα που έχουν καθορίσει το ιδίωμα της σόουλ.
…where
Isaac Hays & Marvell Thomas turn Bacharach / David’s song [for Dionne Warwick] into a 12 minute-long epic. In one of the albums that have defined the soul idiom.

If you see me walking down the street
And I start to cry each time we meet
Walk on by, walk on by
Make believe
That you don’t see the tears
Just let me grieve
In private ’cause each time I see you
I break down and cry
Oh baby, walk on by
I just can’t get over losing you
So if I seem broken in two
Please walk on by, walk on by
Foolish pride
Is all that I have left
So let me hide
The tears and the sadness you gave me
You put the hurt on
You socked it to me, momma
When you said goodbye
So please walk on by
Make believe you never see the tears I cry
So do me a favor and walk on by
So I’m beggin’ you to walk on by
Oh yeah
Make believe you never see the tears I cry
So I’m beggin’ you, I’m beggin’ you to walk on by
Make believe you never see the tears I cry
Oh, there’s no dust in my eye
Oh no
Smoke ain’t making me cry, nah nah nah
It’s the hurt you put on me, yeah
I don’t want you to see this man cry
So please walk on by
Oh mother, mother, walk on by
