From the album "More Tales of Mystery & Imagination from the Crypt of the Black Cat (Opus 4)"

Bluest Blue Eyes Do

A story about a girl I used to know
The one who told me far too much of everything
How her needs weren’t met; how she had no pet; how her world spun under-whelmed
Didn’t help much that I acted like Matt Helm
But that’s what the girls with the chocolate brown eyes do
That’s what they girls with the darkest brown eyes do
That’s what the girls with the deepest brown eyes do
A story about a girl I used to meet
The one who said, “Everything will be all right.”
She keyed my car, stayed all night at the bar, she took everything I earned
Then stood there smoking as the world around us burned
But that’s what the girls with the brightest blue eyes do
That’s what the girls with the bluest blue eyes do
Yes, that’s what the girls with the scary blue eyes do
There’s a story about a girl I used to see
A six foot tall Russian Amazon — and me
We didn’t cling too tight, we’d never ever fight, she’d even let me stay the night
Maybe that’s as happy as I’ll ever be?
‘Cos that’s what the girls with the grey & green eyes do
That’s what the girls with the sea foam green eyes do
That’s what the girls with the greenest green eyes do
