Who do you think is comin' to town
You'll never guess who
Lovable, hugable, Emily Brown
Miss Brown to you

What if the rain comes pattering down
My heaven is blue
Can it be sending me Emily Brown
Miss Brown to you

I know her eyes will thrill ya
But go slow, oh, oh
Don't you all get too familiar

Why do you think she's comin' to town
Just wait and you'll see
The lovable little Miss Brown to you
Is baby to me, yes, yes

Mark it down
