Frankie Valli – Can’t Take My Eyes Off You

About The Song

– “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” is a 1967 song written by Bob Crewe and Bob Gaudio.
– It was recorded as a single by Frankie Valli.
– The song was one of his biggest hits, earning a gold record and reaching number two on the Billboard Hot 100 for a week.
– Gaudio was a bandmate of Valli’s in the Four Seasons.
– It was Valli’s biggest solo hit until he reached number one in 1975 with “My Eyes Adored You.”
– Bob Gaudio, an original member of the Four Seasons, refers to “Eyes” as “…the one that almost got away” until Windsor, Ontario radio station CKLW (a station also serving the Detroit metro area on the U.S. side of the border) stepped in.
– In 1967, the record’s producers urged Paul Drew, the legendary station’s program director, to consider running the tune.
– For much of the 1960s and 1970s, CKLW was credited with releasing hit records on its strong signal, which covered the Great Lakes region.
– Drew wasn’t too keen on the song at first, but he accepted an invitation to hear it live at the Roostertail, where Frankie Valli was playing for a week with the Four Seasons.

Lyric

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤

 You’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my eyes off you
You’d be like heaven to touch
I wanna hold you so much

At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I’m alive
You’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my eyes off you

Pardon the way that I stare
There’s nothing else to compare
The sight of you leaves me weak
There are no words left to speak

But if you feel like I feel
Please let me know that it’s real
You’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my eyes off you

I love you, baby
And if it’s quite alright, I need you, baby
To warm a lonely night, I love you, baby
Trust in me when I say

Oh, pretty baby
Don’t bring me down, I pray, oh pretty baby
Now that I found you, stay
And let me love you, baby
Let me love you

You’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my eyes off you
You’d be like heaven to touch
I wanna hold you so much

At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I’m alive
You’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my eyes off you

I love you, baby
And if it’s quite alright I need you, baby
To warm a lonely night, I love you, baby
Trust in me when I say

Oh, pretty baby
Don’t bring me down, I pray, oh pretty baby
Now that I found you, stay, oh pretty baby
Trust in me when I say

Oh, pretty baby
