Blue Velvet (Lana del Rey / Tony Bennett)

Lana del Rey's cover of Blue Velvet was recorded for this commercial, and it is included in her second album Born to Die - The Paradise Edition (2012):



Tony Bennett was the first one to record this song (1951), written by Bernie Wayne and Lee Morris in 1950:



Lyrics

She wore Blue Velvet
Bluer than velvet was the night
Softer than satin was the light
From the stars


She wore blue velvet
Bluer than velvet were her eyes
Warmer than May her tender sighs
Love was ours

Ours a love I held tightly
Feeling the rapture grow
Like a flame burning brightly
But when she left gone was the glow of

Blue Velvet
But in my heart there'll always be
Precious and warm a memory through the years

And I still can see Blue Velvet through my tears
