"Hazel Eyes" as written by Daniel Francis Hawkins, Francis Gilles Poullain-patterson and Justin David Hawkins....
I hail from the flatland's of East Anglia
A town that once could boast prosperity
She had trekked for many moons from a land afar
But the cruel nets had emptied the northern sea

And she said "hoots, I cannae get back tae
Me hoos in bonny Scotland"

Girl with the hazel eyes, ah!
Girl with the hazel eyes, ah!

The elements had taken their toll on her
Her face was weather beaten and her hair greasy
I had never seen a set of eyes more hazelerer
And a tear did fall as she looked up at me

And she said "hoots, I cannae get back tae
Me hoos in bonny Scotland"

Girl with the hazel eyes, ah!
Girl with the hazel eyes, ah!

I shall travel with thee
For to see your folks in Scotland
With their blessing, on one knee
I shall ask for your left hand

Girl with the hazel eyes, ah!
Girl with the hazel eyes, ah!
Girl with the hazel eyes, ah!
Girl with the hazel eyes, ah!

I shall travel with thee
For to see your folks in Scotland
With their blessing, on one knee
I shall ask for your left hand

    General Commenthm. this song confuses me to as what it actually means. whether its a piss take of frankie the scottish bassist who left the band or whether it has some deeper meaning. seems to me like its just about a girl, with... hazel eyes from scotland really. i love this song anyway haha

    General CommentI first heard this song on the radio of a taxi a little while ago on my way to work (I was running late LOL), and I think I remember the DJ saying it was based on an old Scottish fishermen's folksong. Not surprising, considering the line "and the cruel nets had emptied the Northern Sea". I believe it's just about a man who falls in love with a woman he cares for during her time away from home. No matter what it's about, I think it's the Darkness's most touching and beautiful songs to date.

    General CommentI love this song because I have hazel eyes, haha. It's one of 'my songs'.
    I bet I get pretty annoying singing most of the song in a screamingly enthusiastic falsetto, mwahaha.
