Arrested on charges of unemployment
He was sitting in the witness stand
The judge's wife called up the District Attorney
She said "You free that brown eyed man
If 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 sheddin' tears
For a brown eyed handsome man
Its a lot of trouble with the brown eyed handsome man

Beautiful daughter couldn't make up her mind
Between a doctor and a lawyer man
Her mother told her daughter darling go out and find yourself
A brown eyed handsome man
Just like your daddy, he 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 the 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
That won the game it was a brown eyed handsome man
