    Arrested on charges of unemployment,
    he was sitting in the witness stand
    The judge's wife called up the district attorney
    Said you free that brown eyed man
    You want your job you better free that brown eyed man

    Flying across the desert in a TWA,
    I saw a woman walking across the sand
    She been a-walkin' thirty miles en route to Bombay.
    To get a brown eyed handsome man
    Her destination was a brown eyed handsome man

    Way back in history three thousand years
    Back every since the world began
    There's been a whole lot of good women shed a tear
    For a brown eyed handsome man
    That's what the trouble was brown eyed handsome man

    Beautiful daughter couldn't make up her mind
    Between a doctor and a lawyer man
    Her mother told her daughter go out and find yourself
    A brown eyed handsome man
    That's what your daddy is a brown eyed handsome man

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

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