Kim Carnes – Bette Davis Eyes lyrics

[Verse 1]
Her hair is Harlowe gold
Her lips sweet surprise
Her hands are never cold
She's got Bette Davis eyes
She'll turn her music on you
You won't have to think twice
She's pure as New York snow
She got Bette Davis eyes

[Chorus 1]
And she'll tease you
She'll unease you
All the better just to please you
She's precocious and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
She got Greta Garbo stand off sighs
She's got Bette Davis eyes

[Verse 2]
She'll let you take her home
It whets her appetite
She'll lay you on her throne
She got Bette Davis eyes
She'll take a tumble on you
Roll you like you were dice
Until you come out blue
She's got Bette Davis eyes

[Chorus 2]
She'll expose you
When she snows you
Off your feet with the crumbs she throws you
She's ferocious and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
All the boys think she's a spy
She's got Bette Davis eyes

[Chorus 1]
And she'll tease you
She'll unease you
All the better just to please you
She's precocious and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
She got Greta Garbo stand off sighs
She's got Bette Davis eyes

[Outro]
She'll tease you
She'll unease you
Just to please ya
She's got Bette Davis eyes
She'll expose you
When she snows you
She knows ya
She's got Bette Davis eyes

    Her hair is "harlow gold" (not "hollow gold") as in jean harlow, the golden age movie star (like bette davis) and original blonde bombshell. Her lips "a" sweet surprise (because that clause is part of the earlier sentence). She has "greta garbo pin-up thighs. " the writer mixed together greta garbo and betty grable, known for her wwii pin-up photo showing off her thighs.
    And she doesn't snow you off your feet, you "have to feed with the crumbs she throws you. "

    Yes, the lyrics are terrible. I agree fully with those who have protested and exposed the deficiencies.
    But for my own part, the idea that "she knows what it takes to make a pro blush" is crap. What she says quite clearly in the song is "she knows what it takes to make a crow blush! " you know, the way black bird turning rosy at the advances of this ultimate femme fatale.
    What sort of pro? No, it's a blatant statement of a woman who can turn black feathers white with her predatory sexuality.
    So correct the lyrics, to the end that we can experience the full and raw passion of this song.
