Hey where did we go, day's when the rains came
Down in the hollow playin' a new game
Laughin' and a runnin', hey hey
Skippin' and a jumpin'
So that became my favorite song once I realized that it was cute to be a brown eye'd girl. I think I was in the 9th grade. When I was a senior in high school, I got a job at Round Table Pizza where I met David Penn. Yeah, THE David Penn! There was a juke box that we'd throw quarters in after hours and crank up the volume. David would put in a dollar and though we didn't "make love in the green grass behind the stadium" we did make-out in the office while my song was playing.
Standin' in the sunlight laughin'
Hiding behind a rainbow's wall
Slippin' and a slidin'
all along the waterfall with you, my brown eye'd girl
My daughter keeps trying to tell me that I have green eyes. Horror stories of a hurricane or kidnapping come in to mind and we're seperated and she'll have to describe her mother...and the authorities will over look me because they see that I have brown eyes, not green!
"Sorry, ma'am. You couldn't possibly be her mother."
So I've been working on her.
"Amy," I tell her, "My eyes are BROWN. I even own a song dedicated to me about MY eyes."
So hard to find my way, now that I'm on my own
I saw you just the other day, my how you have grown
Cast my memory back there, Lord
Sometimes I'm overcome thinkin' about it
The other day I was looking through a few pics and I came across this AbFab one of me and Amy taken at Easter last year. Especially next to her, my actual brown eye'd girl, my eyes really DO look green. (I think if you click on the picture it will make it bigger for you to see. You'll get a great view of the color of my eyes and all my pores.)
Well anyway, I can't figure out where I got these eyes. I mean, I've always had brown eyes, right mom? Do they look green to you guys? I'm confused. Maybe they turned color during pregnancy and I've just never noticed.
Sing with me now...!
Do you remember when, we used to sing
just like that
