Lyrics of Private Eyes

I see you, you see me
watch you blowin' the lines
When you're making a scene
Oh girl, you've got to know
what my head overlooks
the senses will show to my heart
when it's watching for lies
'cause you can't escape my...

Eu vejo você, você me vê
ver você voando as linhas
Quando você está fazendo uma cena
Oh menina, você tem que saber
o que minha cabeça vista
os sentidos irá mostrar para o meu coração
quando ele está assistindo para mentiras
Porque você não pode escapar meu ...

Private eyes, they're watching you
They see your every move
Private Eyes, they're watching you
Private Eyes, they're watching you
Watching you, watching you, watching you

detetives particulares, elas estão te observando
Eles vêem todos os seus movimentos
Private Eyes, eles estão te observando
Private Eyes, eles estão te observando
Observando você, vendo você, vendo você

You play with words you play with love
you can twist it around baby that ain't enough
cause girl I'm gonna know
if you're letting me in or letting me go
don't lie when you're hurting inside
'Cause you can't escape my ...

Você joga com as palavras que você joga com amor
você pode girar ao redor do bebê que não é suficiente
Porque garota, eu vou saber
Se você está me deixando ou me deixar ir
não mentir quando você está machucada por dentro
Porque você não pode escapar meu ...



Why you try to put up a front for me
I'm a spy but on your side, you see
Slip on, into any disguise
I'll still know you look into my private eyes

Por que você tenta colocar uma frente para mim
Eu sou um espião, mas ao seu lado, você vê
Deslizamento de, em qualquer disfarce
Eu ainda sei que você olhe nos meus olhos privada


'Private Eyes' is the hit 1981 single by Hall & Oates and the title track from their album of that year. The song was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for 2 weeks, from November 7 through November 20, 1981. This single was the band's third of six #1 hits (the first two being 'Rich Girl' and 'Kiss on My List') and their second #1 hit of the 1980s. Interestingly, it was succeeded by Olivia Newton-John's 'Physical,' which was in turn succeeded by another #1 hit from Hall and Oates, 'I Can't Go for That (No Can Do).' In an interview with American Songwriter, Daryl Hall states: 'That’s a real Janna Allen(co-writer and sister of Sara Allen) song. Janna, and I, and Warren Pash wrote that. Warren and Janna wrote most of the song, and I took it and changed it around-changed the chords. Sandy [Sara Allen] and I wrote the lyrics. It’s a real family song, the Allen sisters and me.' The music video featured the band dressed as detectives and was the first to feature the backup band of guitarist G. E. Smith, bassist Tom 'T-Bone' Wolk, drummer Mickey Curry, and saxophone/keyboardist Charles DeChant. The song was co-written with Canadian songwriter Warren Pash.

The single carries a similar rhythm to the duo's number one hit from earlier that year, 'Kiss On My List,' with the difference being a handclap chorus that has made the song an audience-participation favorite at live Hall and Oates shows. It was one of the duo's first songs to appear in heavy rotation on MTV.
