A Pair of Brown Eyes Songtext. One summer evening drunk to hell I stood there nearly lifeless An old man in the corner sang Where the water lilies grow. And on the jukebox Johnny sang About a thing called love And it's how are you kid and what's your name And how would you bloody know? In blood and death 'neath a screaming sky I lay down on the ground And the arms and legs of other men Were scattered all around. Some cursed, some prayed, some prayed then cursed And prayed then bled some more And the only thing that I could see Was a pair of brown eyes that was looking at me But.
