Cole's version of the song was inducted
into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1992.

In a villa in a little old Italian town
Lives a girl whose beauty shames the rose.
Many yearn to love her
But their hopes all tumble down.
What does she wants? No one knows...

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa, men have named you.
You're so like the lady with the mystic smile.
Is it only 'cause you're lonely they have blamed you
For that Mona Lisa strangeness in your smile?

Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa,
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart?
Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep,
They just lie there and they die there.
Are you warm, are you real, Mona Lisa?
Or just a cold and lonely, lovely work of art?
Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa.
