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.

[Intro]
             ([Fig.F])
[Fig.A]  [Fig.C]  [Fig.A]    [Fig.C]

[Verse 1]
Her hair is Harlowe gold (Fig.A)   Lips sweet surprise (Fig.B)
Her hands are never cold (Fig.C)   She's got Bette Davis eyes

F            F/A             ([Fig.E] repeated)
She'll turn the music on you ([Fig.C])   You won't have to think twice ([Fig.D])
She's pure as New York Snow  ([Fig.C])     She got Bette Davis eyes ([Fig.G])

[Chorus 1]
           Dm                  F                 Bbadd9         F
And she'll tease you, she'll unease you, all the better just to please you.
         Dm               F                  Bbadd9          F
She's precocious, and she knows just what it takes to make a pro blush.
         B              Dm                      C                 ([Fig.E] & F)
She's got Greta Garbo's standard size, she's got Bette Davis Eyes ([Fig.C]) x 2

[Verse 2]
(Fig.E repeated)
She'll let you take her home ([Fig.C])  Whets her appetite ([Fig.B])
She'll lay you on the throne ([Fig.C])  She's got Bette Davis eyes

F             F/A
She'll take a tumble on you ([Fig.C])   Roll you like you were dice ([Fig.D])
Until you come up blue ([Fig.C])  She got Bette Davis eyes

[Chorus 2]
She'll expose you when she snows you.
Hope you breathe with the crumbs she throws you.
She's ferocious and she knows just what it takes to make a pro blush
All the boys used to think she's a spy, she's got Bette Davis eyes.

Lyrics:
"standard size" should be "stand-off sigh"
