judge's wife called up the district attorney

A-a-arrested on charges of unemployment

He was sittin' in the witness stand

The judge's wife called up the district attorney

She said, "Free that brown-eyed man.

'F-you want your job, you better free that brown-eyed man."

Flying across the desert in a T-W-A,
I saw a woman walkin' 'cross the sand

She'd been walkin' thirty miles en route to Bombay
To meet a brown-eyed handsome man,

Her destination was a brown-eyed handsome man.

Way back in history, 'bout three-thousand years,
In fact ever since the world began,
There's been a whole lotta good women

sheddin' tears,
For a brown-eyed handsome man,

't'sa lot of trouble with a brown-eyed handsome man.

Beautiful daughter couldn't make up her mind
Between a doctor and a lawyer man.

Mother told her daughter, Go out and find yourself

A brown-eyed handsome man,
Just like your daddy, he's a brown-eyed handsome  man

Milo Venus was a beautiful lass,
She had the world in the palm of her hand
She lost both her arms in a wrestling match
To get a brown-eyed handsome man,
She fought and won herself a brown-eyed handsome man

Two-three the count, with nobody on
He hit a high fly into the stands
Roundin' third, he was headed for home
It was a brown-eyed handsome man
That won the game, it was a
brown-eyed handsome man
