(vocal: Stuart Allen) - 1935 Ev'ry time your lips say "No Sir" I won't listen, I'm too wise I would rather listen to your eyes They have told me lots of things, dear That your better self denies So I'd rather listen to those eyes There's nothing that you could ever say That could convey the promise I've been waiting for I look in your eyes and realise That they can tell me more Eyes can be sincere and truthful Lips can tell a lot of lies So I'd rather listen to your eyes ******************* As recorded by PHIL HARRIS, New York, 18th September 1935: Ev'ry time your lips say "No Sir" I won't listen, I'm too wise Why, I would rather listen to your eyes Big blue ones, rotate 'em, honey You know, they have told me lots of things, dear That your better self denies So I'd rather listen to your eyes You know, there's nothing that you could ever say That could convey that promise Yeah, that promise that I've been waiting for But I look into your eyes and then I realise They never miss, they can tell me more Eyes can be sincere and truthful Lips, look out, they can tell a lot of lies So, if you don't mind, I would rather listen to your eyes (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2017)
