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 and so slow 
Going down to the old 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
