Bette Davis Eyes  Kim Carnes

Bette Davis Eyes - Kim Carnes - transcribed by Gary Chapman
Part of the "tablature you didn't really want but got anyway" series.
The only recording of this song I have is an ancient and in mono. It's
missing the start and the finish. I had trouble deciphering the lyrics.

She'll expose you when she snows you.
Hope you breathe with the crumbs she throws you.

All the boys used to think she's a spy, she's got Bette Davis eyes.
Mr.Scary (Gary Chapman)
