Dit is een bewerking van het nummer "Bette Davis Eyes" uit 1974, geschreven door Donna Weiss en Jackie DeShannon, en in datzelfde jaar opgenomen op Jackie DeShannons album New Arrangement.

De eerste zin van de songtekst, "Her hair is Harlow gold", verwijst naar filmster Jean Harlow, die populair was in de jaren 1930; zij was de eerste in de filmgeschiedenis die haar haar blond verfde, wat later een trend werd. Verderop in de songtekst wordt Greta Garbo genoemd, zij was een Zweeds actrice.

Songtekst

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
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
