Lyrics
What’s the color of your eyes? W&M Franciscus Henri
(Orient Pacific Music)
Let me light my cigarette on your cigarette
let’s pretend that we’ve just met.
Talk about the weather And whether or not
Just what it is that we have got
hey babe, what’s the color of your eyes?
Hey babe what’s the color of your eyes?

Take off your sunglasses, ruffle up your hair
Let’s pretend there’s no one else here
Give your phone number, I’ll give you mine
Its not that I’ll call you, its just an old familiar line
hey babe, what’s the color of your eyes?
Hey babe what’s the color of your eyes?

Let me draw your picture , on my serviette
we could sit here, parler tête-à-tête
Talk about what ever, what ever or not
Just what it is that we have got
hey babe, what’s the color of your eyes?
Hey babe what’s the color of your eyes?

Laid back, cool, and smooth
A delightful listen. I hope Philip isn't offended but his lead has a lot of J.J. Cale, similar to his latest solo piece. Maybe it's just me.
I don't understand why I'm the first comment/fave after almost a full day: I know there's been a lot posted but surely someone else should have been here before me. This is too good to ignore.

through the eyes of JJ
Thanks richard, i vaguely remember that it was JJ that inspired me to write the song back long ago, I'm just lucky I've got phil to play it.
There is so much being posted its a bit like a frog trying to out croak loudly all the others in a swamp

Hi Richard!
You don't have to worry about me being offended by the comparison to J.J. Cale - in fact I might print it out and put it on the wall :-) I think he is the master of playing relatively simple lines (usually pentatonic scales, I think) and making them interesting, varied, cool, smooth.

A belated welcome to MJ!
The JJ reference is definitely there - good stuff Philip. Nice tune Franciscus - it rolls along very smoothly and totally got me in. The tambourine came in at just the right place for me. I really like laid back stuff like this.
Cheers from "up north".

This is quite nice ... love the easy going flow and the warm understated mix. Everything is clear. Diggin' the guitar leads. The organ is a subtle but nice texture. Vocals out front ... I like the double vocals in the chorus but I would like to hear the second vocal as a harmony. Excellent tune!

thanks, I know what you're saying about the harmony line, I was tempted but wanted to keep it as 'under-recorded' as possible.

Cool...
Nice laid back song, Franc. I really like your vocal work on this. Coolness personified. The guitars keeps things in the groove and Philip's lead work is tasty. Good post. Take care both of you. Regards, Peter.
