80s Music Video Of The Day: Kim Carnes – Bette Davis Eyes

80s Music Video Of The Day: Kim Carnes - Bette Davis Eyes

Released in 1981, Bette Davis Eyes spent nine non-consecutive weeks on top of the US Billboard Hot 100 and won the Grammy Awards for Song of the Year and Record of the Year

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
She’ll let you take her home
It whets her appetite
She’ll lay you on a 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…
