Blue Eyes and Boots (03/11)

Frank Sinatra and his daughter Nancy’s duet “Somethin’ Stupid”  remains to be the only father-daughter duet to hit No. 1 in the United States. (It hit #1 in the U.S. and the UK in April 1967 and spent nine weeks at the top of Billboard’s easy listening chart)

Frank & Nacy Sinatra 1966

This was despite the fact that DJs in 1967 referred to the duet and the “incest song”

With these lyrics, It’s not hard to imagine why they might say that:

I know I stand in line until you think
You have the time to spend an evening with me
And if we go someplace to dance
I know that there’s a chance you won’t be leaving with me
And afterwards we drop into a quiet little place
And have a drink or two……
And then I go and spoil it all by saying
Something stupid like I love you

I can see it in your eyes that you despise
The same old lines you heard the night before……
And though it’s just a line to you for me it’s true……
And never seemed so right before
I practice everyday to find some clever lines
To say to make the meaning come true……
But then I think I’ll wait until the evening gets late
And I’m alone with you
The time is right your perfume fills my head……
The stars get red and on the nights so blue……
And then I go and spoil it all by saying
Something stupid like I love you
