Nothing so bright Nothing so smooth Nothing so pure As my baby
All of my life Days into night All I did dream was my baby
Until the day Darkness entwined With silver eyes Was my baby staring at me
And since then I can't see straight And since then my smile's been fake Funny I know, the troubles I've seen But through one eye only that's clear
If you bring along your needles Then I'll bring my sharpened pencils And draw one more comic tragedy My baby So call up the child players From madam we'll rent the parlor And dance to death Till I can't see My baby

Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
