SPANISH EYES

Unofficial studio version #2


One two three four

Little Christine, we're taking one more run
Secret heart, when the time has begun
Come to part
And hey, you're the one
And now we know
My heart is sold
And though we tried
You took me with your Spanish eyes
Whoaaa

Hey badlands
Realize
That someone else is yearning
Special Sunday night
And baby there's time
Time enough to cry
With all our sad stories
And all the bad that we've done
And all the time we rode on for glory
And tried it all and you took me with you Spanish eyes

[spoken:] Try it going into B
And if love all of them ???
Your heart ???
??? the light
And we get there in sad emotion

And I love you ???
And come ???
And ???
And we left all with sad devotion
[spoken:] Into A
And emotion
[spoken:] B
???

Stretch out baby and call your daddy home
'Cause I'm running tonight, couldn't be all alone
Yes I know how something died
But baby was just for kicks, it was just for fun
Even with all the bad that we done
They can't say we didn't try
And I fell for your Spanish eyes
[spoken:] Big Man

[Sax solo]

Saturday night special, waiting in the sheets
Whoa come on, talk to me, my sweet
And I'll try to make it complete this time
Come close and let me dry your eyes
Let me try turn the lies
Let me ???
And let me kiss your Spanish eyes
Let me kiss your Spanish eyes
Let me kiss your Spanish eyes
Let me kiss your Spanish eyes
Come here baby
