How does the saying go about smoke and mirrors?

I heard part of it in a song, just curious how the saying goes, and what it means.

Smoke and mirrors refers to how magicians use smoke and mirrors to obscure what is really happening. Figuratively it means to hide the truth.

The saying varies. The basic saying is “It’s all smoke and mirrors” and refers to what @Shae said above.
