Today I thought I would share this wonderful song by The Beautiful South – “The Prettiest Eyes”. It is from their fourth studio album Miaow, and is the fifth track on the CD. It is also on their compilation album Carry On up the Charts. The album was recorded in the spring of 1993, and released in March 1994. I don’t have any more detail about the song itself, but if someone reading this knows more feel free to add more information in the comments section below.

“The Prettiest Eyes” is a song by The Beautiful South which appears on their fourth studio album Miaow.

The song is a lovely love song, the lyrics speak for themselves.

Line one is the time
That you, you first stayed over at mine
And we drank our first bottle of wine
And we cried

Line two, we’re away
And we both, we both had nowhere to stay
Well, the bus shelter’s always OK
When you’re young

Now you’re older and I look at your face
Every wrinkle is so easy to place
And I only write them down just in case
That you die

Let’s take a look at these crow’s feet, just look
Sitting on the prettiest eyes
60 25th of Decembers
59 4th of Julys
Not through the age or the failure, children
Not through the hate or despise
Take a good look at these crow’s feet
Sitting on the prettiest eyes

Line three I forget
But I think, I think it was our first ever bet
And the horse we backed was short of a leg
Never mind

Line four in a park
And the things, the things that people do in the dark
I could hear the faintest beat of your heart
Then we did

Now you’re older and I look at your face
Every wrinkle is so easy to place
And I only write them down just in case
You should die

Lets take a look at these crow’s feet, just look
Sitting on the prettiest eyes
60 25th of Decembers
59 4th of Julys
You can’t have too many good times, children
You can’t have too many lines
Take a good look at these crow’s feet
Sitting on the prettiest eyes

Well, my eyes look like a map of the town
And my teeth are either yellow or they’re brown
But you’ll never hear the crack of a frown
When you are here
You’ll never hear the crack
Of a frown
Of a frown
Of a frown
Of a frown

Here is the official video of this lovely song. Enjoy!
