her hair is Harlow gold, her lips sweet surprise
her hands are never cold, she's got Bette Davis eyes
she'll turn music on so you won't have to think twice
she's pure as New York snow, she got Bette Davis eyes

and she'll tease ya, she'll unease ya
all the better just to please ya
she's precocious!
and she knows just what it takes to make a pro blush
she got Greta Garbo's stand off sighs,
she's got Bette Davis eyes

she'll let you take her home, it whets her appetite
she'll lay you on the 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

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

Bette Davis eyes..

and she'll tease ya, she'll unease ya
all the better just to please ya
she's precocious!
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..

and she'll tease you.. ooh.
she'll unease ya..
just to please you..
she's got Bette Davis eyes.

she'll expose you
when she snows you.. ooh.
well she knows you.
she's got Bette Davis eyes.
she's got Bette Davis eyes.
she's got Bette Davis eyes.
she's got Bette Davis eyes.
she's got Bette Davis eyes.

    General Commenti loved her since hangmans curse.
    and ever since i heard she's making an album,
    i can't help but fall in love.
    leighton is amazing, and that's not even a good enough word.
