It was only when his friend and singer of the lead gospel group The Dixie Hummingbirds, went to visit him did he get a response. His hand was resting on my arm and after a while his fingers started going in time with the song. I said yeah, yeah! This dude is going to make it! You must be logged in to post a comment.

A guy who maybe cheats "with a counterfeit dollar in his hand" or tricks people just to get his money "playin' hard, talkin' fast, makin' sure that he won't be the last". A gambler could at least be a possibility "any place, he will play" because it's a normal thing to do if you like taking risks, know that you're good and so on. He's cold and lonely, maybe, but lifts himself up in his mind because he's winning all the time.
So it seems to me like Stevie Wonder describes a hustler of some kind, maybe a seller "makes a deal with a smile" that lures people to pay too much, or just a guy that has found a way to beat the system.
And tricking others to "believe" his smile and friendliness. And not about Nixon, but about a man that started off with nothing and worked his way up to get rich with dirty money.
As for "He's misstra know it all", I know what it means, but what about "His misstra know s it all"? Like if it's his woman, or God, or any other person knowing that "his lie's a mile".
At least that's a feeling I get: Somebody knows all the wrong he's done. But on the other hand, it pretty obviously means "He is Mr. Know-It-All", right? One of my favorite songs of all time, too.
