Watch out, men – the women like to look too! I rediscovered the half-written lyrics to this song not long after moving to the musically stimulating town of Portland, OR. Incidentally, most of the locals here seem to be heavily tattooed… No album is complete without at least one sultry song about attraction and lust, and Kaz Kazanoff’s baritone sax takes it just where it ought to go.

lyrics

Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you
Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you
I want to look you up, baby
Well, high and low
I want to raise up your shirt
See where them tattoos go...
Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you

First saw you, baby, a long, long time ago
First saw you, baby, a long, long time ago
But now when I see you, well, you sure look good
Better than you know that you ought to should
Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you

Baby, baby, don’t you throw no snakes-eyes on me
Baby, baby, don’t you throw no snake-eyes on me
‘Cause you never know when this feeling comes again
And I would sure like to be your friend
Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you

Mirror, mirror, on the wall
Tell me, who’s the jiving-est one of all?
Who’s the one with the glint in her eye
Just checking you out as you walk on by?
Hmmm... I believe I got my eye on you

Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you
Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you
I want to look you up, baby
Well, high and low
I want to raise up your shirt
See where them tattoos go...
Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you
