  • Looking out the corner of her eye
    As she sits alone and drinks her wine
    Every man just wants to pass her by
    And hopes that he can catch her eye

    That glow, it's in her eye
    Give you visions in your mind
    She's from another space and time
    That's when you know you're hypnotized
    And her intoxicating will not be denied
    Oh, and when you touch her glow
    She then becomes your drug
    You fell so deep in love with that girl

    It's too late, you're hypnotized
    She's got Dorothy Dandridge Eyes
    And you love her, you love her, you love her, you love that girl
    It's too late, you're hypnotized
    She's got Dorothy Dandridge Eyes
    And you love her, you love that girl

    Like a rare Picasso or Monet
    That kind of view you studied everything
    Every woman wants her grace and style
    But no one who can replicate her smile

    That glow, it's in her eye
    Give you visions in your mind
    Just from another space and time
    That's when you know you're hypnotized
    And her intoxicating will not be denied
    Oh, and when you touch her glow
    She then becomes your drug
    You fell so deep in love with that girl

    It's too late, you're hypnotized
    She's got Dorothy Dandridge Eyes
    And you love her, you love her, you love her, you love that girl
    It's too late, you're hypnotized
    She's got Dorothy Dandridge Eyes
    And you love her, you love that girl

    All eyes on you
    In your bed, in your
    All the men you love in the world
    All I know that the

    It's too late, you're hypnotized
    She's got Dorothy Dandridge Eyes
    And you love her, you love that girl

    In your eyes, we see the tiny white snowcaps of mountains
    The purple glow of distant stars, the blue shine of black marrow
    Red rose petals falling slowly in the sunny air
    Orange clouds, pink moons, and the tongue of the sun
    Who knew heaven could keep us just like this Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
