Well, flying across the desert in a TWA
I saw a woman walking in the sand
She'd be walking 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, three thousand years
In fact, ever since the world began
There's been a whole lotta good women shedding tears
Over a brown-eyed, handsome man
A lot of trouble was a brown-eyed, handsome man

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

Well, a 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
Just like your daddy was, a brown-eyed, handsome man

Well, a two, three the count with nobody home
He hit a high-flyer into the stand
A-rounded third, he was a-heading for home
It was a brown-eyed, handsome man that won the game
It was a brown-eyed, handsome man
It was a brown-eyed, handsome man
