Brown Eyed Handsome Man
Chuck Berry Lyrics


Arrested on charges of unemployment
He was sitting in the witness stand
The judge's wife called up the district attorney
She said, "free that brown eyed man
If you want your job, you better free that brown eyed man"

Flyin' across the desert in a TWA
I saw a woman walking 'cross the sand
She 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, 3000 years
In fact, ever since the world began
There's been a whole lotta good women sheddin' tear
Over a brown eyed handsome man
It's a lot of trouble with a brown eyed handsome man

Beautiful daughter couldn't make up her mind
Between a doctor and a lawyer man
Her mother told her, "darling, go out and find
Yourself a brown eyed handsome man
Just like your daddy, he's a brown eyed handsome man"

Marlo 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 meet 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 stand
Rounded third, he was headed for home
It was a brown eyed handsome man
That won the game, it was a brown eyed handsome man

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
If you want your job you'd better free that brown eyed man"

[Verse 2]
Flyin' across the desert in a TWA
I saw a woman walkin' 'cross the sand
She been walkin' 30 miles en route to Bombay
To meet a brown-eyed handsome man
Her destination was a brown-eyed handsome man

[Verse 3]
Way back in history, 3000 years
In fact, ever since the world began
There's been a whole lotta good women sheddin' tears
Over a brown-eyed handsome man
It's a lot of trouble for a brown-eyed handsome man

[Verse 4]
Beautiful daughter couldn't make up her mind
Between a doctor and a lawyer man
Her mother told her, "Darling, go out and find
Yourself a brown-eyed handsome man
Just like your daddy, he's a brown-eyed handsome man"


[Verse 5]
Marlo 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 meet a brown-eyed handsome man
She fought and won herself a brown-eyed handsome man

[Verse 6]
Two-three the count with nobody on
He hit a high fly into the stand
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

Most of what English schoolboys knew about American culture in the 50s was learned thru Chuck's songs, so I guess Chuck was a sociology professor too.

Chuck seriously underrated as a lyricist. One of the best of all time
