1st verse:


000232            030010        020000
Eyes that send me chasing after feelings that I


002020
lost one day


000232            030010           020000
Why befriend me   when the brandy  tells me what they


002020
want to say


030010      020000         002020
Playing big protector is a grand 


000232   030010            020000
disguise until you contra- dict yourself with


002020   000232
brandy   eyes


2nd verse:

No beginning and still no end 
to let me shrug and walk away
silly grinning, teasing talk
that promises a kiss someday
I would put you out of mind
if I were wise, but wisdom 
has no power over brandy eyes.


3rd verse:

Maybe I'm wrong, if I am, 
please pardon me and pat my head
Sing an old song, sing of one more 
foolish heart that's been mislead
take the points for winning
and donate the prize
and keep right on a-scoring with
those brandy eyes.
