"Brown Eyed Girl" as written by and Van Morrison....
(I hear a song, it makes me think of a girl I used to know...
I sing along when I hear it on the radio now)

Hey now where'd we go?
Yeah days when the rains came
Way down in the hollows
Oooh yeah playing a new game

Laughing and a-running
Hey hey
Skipping and a-jumping
In the misty morning fog
Oh baby, yeah my heart's a-thumping you

My brown eyed girl
(Brown eyed girl...brown eyed girl)
You my
Brown eyed girl

Do you remember when? (do you remember when?)
Yeah we used to sing...
Sha la la la la la
La la la la la la
Sha la la la la la
La la la la la la

(I hear a song, it makes me think of a girl I used to know)

Hey... Hey... Hey

(I sing along when I hear it on the radio now)

Now that the years gone by
Yeah now that I'm on my own
I saw you baby, just the other day
But my baby, you have grown

I cast my memory back there Lord
Sometimes, I am overcome just thinking about it
Making love in the green grass
Behind the stadium with you

My brown eyed girl
You my
Brown eyed girl
(My brown eyed girl...my brown eyed girl)

You my
Brown eyed girl
(My brown eyed girl...my brown eyed girl)
You my
Brown eyed girl

Do you remember when?

Yeah we used to sing
Sha la la la la la
La la la la la la
Sha la la la la la
La la la la la la

Sha la la la la la
La la la la la la
Sha la la la la la
La la la la la la
I hear a song
It makes me think of a girl
I used to know

HEY...HEY...HEY

I sing along
When I hear it on the radio now

I sing along
When I hear it on the radio

Now

    General CommentIs it just me, or is the video absolutely disgusting... and hilarious? I mean, you go on hoping for a happy ending, then you're crushed, then you're like "AWWWWW" and then you HAVE to laugh!

    Anyway, I don't know why people don't like this cover. It's not meant to be just like the original; you can still ike Van Morrison's. This one just happens to be different, but good too.

    General CommentThe problem is, you can't just look at a cover song and then compare it to the original in the same view point. Cover songs are meant to be seen in a different view. When a song is covered, the artist puts a little bit of their touch into it, while still paying homage to the original artist, that is if they even care about the artist they covered. Looking at it from a different perspective, it's not a bad cover.

    General CommentI think this song is brilliant... see it as a stand-alone song and don't compare it to the original. Is it a good song? In my opinion, yes it is. Reminds me of... happier days.
