</ref> Since "Maria Elena" was also a #1 hit, this was a major double-sided hit recording.
[[Gloria Jean]] sang the Spanish lyrics to "Aquellos Ojos Verdes" in the 1943 film, ''[[When Johnny Comes Marching Home (film)|When Johnny Comes Marching Home]]''.
[[Ben Affleck]] also sang the Spanish version, in the 2006 film, ''[[Hollywoodland]]'', in pivotal scenes just prior to the fatal shooting of his character, [[George Reeves]].
R&B group, the Ravens, had regional success with a 1955 revival.
[[Allan Sherman]] recorded a version titled "Green Stamps", a parody of [[S&H Green Stamps]]. During the recording session (according to the liner notes on the album), Sherman had a talk with the college types who hadn't heard of "Green Eyes." He said it was, like the [[Bossa Nova]], once a red-hot tune by [[Helen O'Connell]]. He asked, "Any of you remember red-hot Helen O'Connell?" (About half did.)

:Those green eyes<br>
:with their serene gaze, <br>
:they left in my soul<br>
:eternal thirst to love. <p>
:yearning for caresses, <br>

==English lyrics==
The version written for English audiences varies from the Spanish. The Big Band version typically had a male voice singing these words, followed by a female voice singing the same words, with the exception of the last line. This is one version:
:Well, Green Eyes with their soft lights
:Your eyes that promise sweet nights,
:Bring to my soul a longing, a thirst for love divine
:In dreams I seem to hold you, to find you and enfold you
:Our lips meet and our hearts, too, with a thrill so sublime
:Those cool and limpid Green Eyes
:A pool wherein my love lies
:So deep that in my searching for happiness
:I fear that they will ever haunt me
:All through my life they'll taunt me
:But will they ever want me?
(Male voice)
:Green Eyes, make my dreams come true.
(Female voice)
:Green Eyes, I love you.
