Oh, the gentlemen are talkin'
And the midnight moon is on the riverside
They're drinkin' up and walkin'
And it is time for me to slide
I live in another world
Where life an' death are memorized
Where the earth is strung with lovers' pearls
And all i see are dark eyes.

A cock is crowin' far away
And another soldier's deep in prayer
Some mother's child has gone astray
She can't find him anywhere
But i can hear another drum
Beatin' for the dead that rise
Whom nature's beast fears as they come
And all i see are dark eyes.

They tell me to be discreet
For all intended purposes
They tell me revenge is sweet
And from where they stand, i'm sure it is
But i feel nothing for their game
Where beauty goes unrecognized
All i feel is heat and flame
And all i see are dark eyes.

Oh, the French girl she's in paradise
And a drunken man is at the wheel
Hunger pays a heavy price
To the falling gods of speed and steel
Oh, time is short and the days are sweet
And passion rules the arrow that flies
A million faces at my feet
But all i see are dark eyes.  up
