Song Lyrics - Brown Eyed Girl
Hey where did we go, days when the rains came?
Down in the hollow, playin' a new game.
Laughin' and a runnin', hey hey
Skippin' and a jumpin',
In the misty morning fog, With our hearts a thumpin'
And you, my brown eyed girl, you, my brown eyed girl.
Whatever happened, to Tuesday and so slow,
Goin' down the old mine, with a transistor radio.
Standin' in the sunlight laughin'
Hiding behind a rainbows wall,
Slipping and a sliding, all along the waterfall,
With you, my brown eyed girl, you, my brown eyed girl.
Do you remember when...we used to sing
Sha la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-ti-da,
Sha la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-ti-da
So hard to find my way, now that I'm all on my
I saw you just the other day, my how you have grown.
Cast my memory back there Lord,
Sometimes I'm overcome thinkin' 'bout it.
Makin' love in the, green grass
Behind, the stadium with you,
My brown eyed girl, you, my brown eyed girl.
Do you remember when...we used to sing
Sha la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-ti-da,
Sha la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-ti-da, etc
