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's got Bette Davis eyes.

And she'll tease you
she'll unease you.
AII the better just to please you.
She's precocious and she knows just what
It takes to make a pro blush.
She's got Greta Garbo stand off sights

She's got Bette Davis eyes.

She'll let you take her home -
it whets her appetite.
She'll lay you on her throne
she's got Bette Davis eyes.
She'll take a tumble on you
roll you like you were dice
Until you come up blue - she's
got Bette Davis eyes.

She'll expose you when she snows you
Off your feet with the crumbs that she throws you.
She's ferocious and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush.
AII the boys think she's a spy -
she's got Bette Davis eyes.
And she'll tease you
she'll unease you
. . .
It takes to make a pro blush.
AII the boys think she's a spy -
she's got Bette Davis eyes.
And she'll tease you - she'll unease you

Just to please you - she's got Bette Davis eyes.
She'll expose you when she snows you . . .
