Bette Davis Eyes – Kim Carnes


Her hair is Harlow gold
Her lips a 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

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's standoff sighs, she's got Bette Davis eyes



Bette Davis Eyes was written in 1974 but it wasn't until 1981 that it was a hit courtesy of Kim Carnes.


Kim Carnes is 75 now!  Although she is a successful songwriter, she didn't write Bette Davis Eyes.  I wonder what she thinks of being known primarily for it?
