In 1981, Kim Carnes made a song that would start a decade. “Bette Davis Eyes” spent nine weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was Billboard’s biggest hit of the year.

The song is sultry and confident. Bette Davis even admitted that she was a fan of the song and thanked Kim Carnes for her tribute.

Davis is the First Lady of Film. She starred in over 100 movies. This song is a fitting tribute. With the help of the song, the legacy of Bette Davis has been given some added exposure and luster.

Whenever you want to feel sexy, whenever you want to embrace the inner bitch, put this song on. You can find the Bette Davis within.

“Bette Davis Eyes” Lyrics

Her hair is Harlowe gold
Her lips 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 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 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 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

She’ll tease you
She’ll unease you
Just to please ya
She’s got Bette Davis eyes
She’ll expose you, when she snows you
She knows ya
She’s got Bette Davis eyes
