Carnes, Kim - Bette Davis Eyes Lyrics




Her hair is Harlow gold
Her lips sweet surprise
Her hands are never cold
She's got Bette Davis eyes
She'll turn the 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 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

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
All the boys think she's a spy
She's got Bette Davis eyes

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
She knows you
She's got Bette Davis eyes

Carnes, Kim Bette Davis Eyes Comments
  1. Schwanzus Longus

    very unique voice

  2. Amelia Anderson

    Sometimes wish I was a man so I could make love to hot ladies like Kim Carnes without persecution. ❤️

  3. Damahneee

    2020 Damahneee still listening

  4. OCDean

    My mom forced me to look this up. xD

  5. Greg House

    2:14: SAY MI NAME

  6. Marie Marie

    I knew it: she sang it as Bette Middler and NOT "bettie". She has no I in her name so it's "BET" as in Bette Middler. Stupid name !

  7. Marie Marie

    Would have been nice if you could have turned THE VOLUME ON, at this point, not even up but ON!

  8. Manix Catino

    Nothing says 80s more than the line "all the boys think she's a spaz"...

    Edgehead10075

    think she's a SPY

    TheDeceptikron

    @Edgehead10075 lolol

    Laser Kitty

    @Manix Catino -- That's how I always used to hear it!

  9. Sergio Marino

    Grande figa

  10. Frederick Young

    I'm listening in 2020 and I'm black.. love this

    Patrick McCurdy

    I'm not sure why you need to separate yourself from all of the Kim fans by staying your color.... Honestly it's cool you like REALLY REALLY WHITE music... But we are all brothers no?

    Frederick Young

    Absolutely... Don't know why but it makes me think, this music just put me in deep thought because I can definitely relate while others failed to understand

    Patrick McCurdy

    That's cool.... I was not trying to be a jerk at all.... Also trying to understand others points of view I appreciate your candor

  11. 권숙진

    💘 Love H.J 💘
    💘 Love is...💘

  12. max chan

    God..I love 80s and 90s. Please turn back the clock.

    Marie Marie

    the 90s sucked hard, though!

  13. Toymiko

    Yesssssssssssssss ................ Toymiko

  14. Gary McEwan

    Sound of California, sunshine, smiles and good times. Love to you all x

  15. Sergio Perez

    Un clasico de universal ❤🌎,

  16. Donnelly Miller

    This song reminds me of the huge parties (100 plus guests) my parents used to throw back in the early 80s in our old house now worth over 2.4 million dollars and how our guests would dance to this and many other late 70s and early 80s music. Where did I go wrong in life to wind up having to live in a 217 square foot apartment with two random roommates at the ripe old age of 45??😨😨

  17. Pick'n'Roll82

    Beauty.

  18. Oskar Back

    "He's got Walid Jumblatt eyes."

    The Gadget Guy

    I thought he definitely resembled Albert Einstein.

  19. RJ FP

    She’s a classic beauty with a great voice !

  20. Hello World

    She smoke a lot or she screamed a lot lmao

    Reymond James

    Smoked. See, smoking is good? Cigars...

    Patrick McCurdy

    No pal....this is why she is a star.... She has a unique voice.... So she got a record deal

  21. Phistra

    2:49 Bette Davis Eyezzzzzzz - I looove that part.

  22. Wilson Castañeda

    2020 Colombia presente :)

  23. The Gadget Guy

    Did anybody know this song is actually a cover version of an R&B folk song done a few years earlier in 1974 by a Jackie DeShannon?.
    So if the claim was Bette Davis liked Kim Carnes "version", yes because that's what it was, then it is very likely that she never heard the original version or even knew who Jackie DeShannon was which I find very hard to believe as I'm sure most songs that include names of certain famous individuals have to be approved by the Record Company before it can be released as you are basically using a trademark, but also just so there's nothing slanderous about them in the lyrics and I'm pretty sure if the song goes mainstream the famous individual of whom the song is based on will definitely be contacted to let them know there's a song from an artist using their name or trademark, that's normally how it would work in the music industry.
    So I'm pretty sure Bette Davis must've complimented Carnes and DeShannon for both versions of the song even though Carnes version was more popular, which means she might have sent letters to both Record Companies.

  24. The Gadget Guy

    When I first heard this track I actually thought she was singing "she's got better days aside", that's exactly what it sounded like to me, I just only found out a few days ago "this month" in 2020 that it was actually "Bette Davis eyes", so I spent over 3 decades trying to look for a song which I had the wrong title of to start with.

    LB B-Ridge

    Don't kill yourself over it... I just found out that it wasn't Rod Steward that sung this!!! I literally found out tonight from a coworker... Am I in the Matrix????

    Herp Derp

    I think this song is about lesbian love

    James Brice

    @Herp Derp It has nothing to do with lesbianism.

    The Gadget Guy

    @LB B-Ridge Lol!, the female version of Rod Stewart, I actually also use to think Rod Stewart sung "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey!,

    The Gadget Guy

    @Herp Derp Loool!, Lesbianism?,

  25. Jonny Crash

    Rumor has it that every time this song is played Liz Taylor bleeds Dior....

  26. TheDangerousDolls

    All the boys think she's a spy ....

  27. Führer

    Anyone see the scene in fresh prince when will said Carlton has Bette Davis eyes as a disease

  28. The Future Is Here

    Somehow, Olivia Newton John's "Physical" which came out a few months after this, became "Song of the Decade", rising to #1 in the US for 10 weeks to this song's 9 weeks. Maybe the "Physical" video put Olivia over the top, because this video swallows. Bette Davis Eyes is clearly a superior song. The best song of the 1980's

    James Brice

    I agree. Let's get physical was mundane

  29. Filipe Cotrim

    I love this song <3 #Brazil Who´s listening in 2020?

  30. Maria Brown

    In londie

  31. TheUrban Raccoon

    She can't sing for shit. It sounds like an 80 year old smoker trying to sing

  32. Juan Escalera

    ¡Qué voz tan sexy y qué guapa! 😍😍

  33. woknded fan

    Oh ya, shit load of cocaine on that set

  34. Monosodium Glutamate

  37. Simi Dubrinsky

  38. M R

    Muchos Recuerdos de Madrid, de hace años....

  39. Ricky Parker

    Whatever happened to this whore? Stevie Nicks she WASN'T! But "Bette Davis Eyes" WAS a huge hit! She also had a song called "Voyeur" that was a modest hit and another song "More Love" that charted I think but beyond that haven't heard from her since.

  40. David Anthony

    In case you didn't grow up in the 80s; You're suppose to turn it up until the music takes you away.

  41. Raul Galindo

    Hurray in 2020!!

  42. bill woodell

    ...when it first came out....i thought she was saying...''She's got very dangerous eyes...'' :)

  43. Big Road

    Fucken hot blonde....

  44. DevinelyIntervened

    Times like this makes me wish I was born in the 80's and not the 90's

    stratgibson

    Hard to put into words,think EXPLOSION of everything

    You Only LIve Once

    More like 60's or 70's to enjoy the 80's at its fullest

  45. peter santospago

    It brings me so back to youthful memories of summertime beaches and traffic jams having infinite energy and being a sponge soaking up the newness of life.

  46. Ricardo Guillén Aguilar

    who listens to this musical jewel in 2020?❤👍 39 years after his departure. and forever and for all eternity kim Carnes. Forever.

  47. VGx7

  48. TheDustysix

    Phoenix KUPD in the 80/90's had a Spoof Version: "She's got Marty Feldman Eyes". I'd love to see it posted YT.

  49. Mauro Coruzzi

    Kicking off the new decade on 1/1/20 by listening to this great tune. Peace and Love to all of you transported to your youth by it. There is no doubt in my mind that we were fortunate to be young in the 80’s.

    Her hair is harlow gold,
    Her lips sweet surprise
    Her hands are never cold
    She's got bette davis eyes
    She'll turn her music on
    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 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 her 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

    All the boys think she's a spy,
    She's got bette davis eyes.

    Nyctophora

    Thank you because I always wondered if she knew what it takes to make a crow blush.

    John Smith

    I read that "crow" was the original intended word. It's used frequently in parts of the country, I understand.

  84. BUDD WEISER

    Sounds like Rod Stewart

  85. David Yeary

    I'd like to hear Metallica cover this song.

    Strontium9T

    @danoz danoz Aw just relax. I love the tune, but it ain't January yet.

  90. fuk u.

    both this song and I Love You Always Forever stuck with me for a looooong time when I was very young in the mid 90s listening to the car radio with my parents just because of how I guess “nurturing” the voices in both of those songs sounded to me back then. I of course had a very shoddy memory of my very early days, but the fact that even now in 2019 at 27 this song still transports me to being a small child in the 90s really says something about its quality and longevity.

  91. Kenneth Freeman

    My kind of nostalgia. Something definitely congealed in the '80s.

  92. Meet Billy

    She sounds similar to my math teacher

  93. tgree18

    I am here after seeing Buckwheat! 2019!

  94. Tatts Kink

    The song Is magnificent the video stunning
