Bambi Eyes

My first round grading music of choice is ABBA. We had a bunch of their albums as a kid. They have a large number of catchy enough songs to provide momentum and generally are cheery (which helps keep my spirits up).

My ear and brain are generally wired to do silly song hacks—writing new lyrics, mishearing lyrics, etc. And so I present to you the hacked version of the ABBA hit Angeleyes:

Ah-ha-ha, ah-aaaah
Ah-ha-ha, ah-aaaah
Ah-ha-ha, keep thinking ’bout his bambieyes
I keep thinking, a-aaah

Last night I was taking a walk along the river
And I saw him together with a young girl
And the look that he gave her made me shiver
‘Cause he always used to look at me that way
And I thought maybe I should walk right up to her and say
Ah-ha-ha, it’s a game he likes to play

Look into his bambieyes
One look and you’re hypnotized
He’ll take your heart and you must pay the price [of a flamethrower]
Look into his bambieyes
You’ll think you’re in paradise
And one day you’ll find out he wears a (deer) disguise
Don’t look too deep into those bambieyes
Oh no no no no

Ah-ha-ha, ah-aaaah
Ah-ha-ha, ah-aaaah
Ah-ha-ha, keep thinking ’bout his bambieyes
I keep thinking, a-aaah

Sometimes when I’m lonely I sit and think about him
And it hurts to remember all the good times
When I thought I could never live without him
And I wonder does it have to be the same
Every time when I see him, will it bring back all the pain?
Ah-ha-ha, how can I forget that name?

Look into his bambieyes
One look and you’re hypnotized
He’ll take your heart and you must pay the price
Look into his bambieyes
You’ll think you’re in paradise
And one day you’ll find out he wears a disguise
Don’t look too deep into his bambieyes
Crazy ’bout his bambieyes
bambieyes
Once he took my heart and now I pay the price
Look into his bambieyes
You’ll think you’re in paradise
And one day you’ll find out he wears a disguise
Don’t look too deep into those bambieyes
Oh no no no no

Ah-ha-ha, ah-aaaah
Ah-ha-ha, ah-aaaah

Ah-ha-ha, keep thinking, ah-aaaah
Keep thinking ’bout his bambieyes
Ah-ha-ha, keep thinking, ah-aaaah
Keep thinking, I had to pay the price

It works surpisingly well.

The Czars’ slowed down, acoustic version is far inferior to the ABBA one, fwiw. I mean, really awful.
