Brown Eyed Girl Lyrics - Van Morrison

Review The Song (2)



Hey, where did we go
Days when the rains came?
Down in the hollow
Playing a new game,
Laughing and a-running, hey, hey,
Skipping and a-jumping
In the misty morning fog with
Our, our hearts a-thumping
And you, my brown-eyed girl,
You, my brown-eyed girl.

Whatever happened
To Tuesday it's so slow
Going down the land mine with a
Transistor radio.
Standing in the sunlight laughing
Hide behind a rainbow's 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 dee dah
Just like that
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
La dee dah.

So hard to find my way
Now that I'm all on my own.
I saw you just the other day,
My, how you have grown!
Cast my memory back there, Lord,
Sometime I'm overcome thinking about
Making 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 la la dee dah
Laying in the green grass
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
Dee dah dee dah dee dah dee dah dee dah dee
Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la
Dee dah la dee dah la dee dah la

Lyric correction. | Reviewer: Jeff | 6/28/12

Great song, thanks for posting. The line "going down the land mine with a transistor radio" should be "going down the old mine with a transistor radio". Sorry to be so picky but you have to agree it's dangerous to be around a land mine!

CTY Canon Rules most Hoopily! | Reviewer: Phra Meha Monkgut | 9/25/04

At the dances at CTY, there is nothing quite like dancing in your circle of friends to Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl. This is one of the oldest and best of the Canon songs, and it is always fun to dance to.

The main tradition of this classic is to wave your hands over your head frome side to side during the "Shalalalalala. . ." bits. Also, everyone claps in rhythm during the bass solo. From then on, dancing is pretty much freeform. I have seen couples swing dance to this, and Brown Eyed Girl can be twisted, hully-gullied, and raved to.

Without a doubt, removing Brown Eyed Girl from the Canon would be a tragedy. We would lose a wonderful song from a wonderful roster of songs.
Peace, Love, and CTY
