Frank Sinatra Tangerine Lyrics

Last updated: 02/15/2011 10:00:00 AM

He: Tangerine, she is all they claim
With her eyes of night and lips as bright as flame
Tangerine, when she dances by, senoritas stare and caballeros sigh
And I've seen toasts to Tangerine
Raised in every bar across the Argentine
Yes, she has them all on the run, but her heart belongs to just one
Her heart belongs to Tangerine
She: Tangerine, she is all they say
With mascara'd eye and shadow by Dache.
Tangerine, with her lips of flame
If the color keeps, Louis Philippe's to blame.
And I've seen clothes on Tangerine
Where the label says "From Macy's Mezzanine".
Yes, she's got the guys in a whirl, but she's only fooling one girl
She's only fooling Tangerine!

Listen closely to the Reprise recording of this song. Sinatra's masterly control and inflection enable him to imbed a grin (smirk?) in this vocal portrait of a femme fatale. I have yet to hear any other singer come close to doing this.
