Songtext:

One summer evening drunk to hell
I sat 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
Then prayed and bled some more

And the only thing that I could see
Was a pair of brown eyes that was looking at me
But when we got back labelled parts one to three
There was no pair of brown eyes waiting for me

And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
For a pair of brown eyes

I looked at him he looked at me
All I could do was hate him
While Ray and Philomena sang of my elusive dreams
I saw the streams the rolling hills
here his brown eyes were waiting

And I through about
A pair brown eyes
That waited once for me

So drunk to hell I left the place
Sometimes crawling sometimes walking,
A hungry sound came across the breeze
So I gave the walls a talking

And I heard the sound of long ago
From the old canal
And the birds were whistling
In the trees
Where the wind was gently laughing,

So a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
For a pair of brown eyes,
For a pair of brown eyes.
