FIRST IN BOOZE FIRST IN SHOES
OUR BROWNS WERE THE YANKEES OF THEIR DAY
WELL, THEY COULD'VE BEEN BUT THEY TRADED AWAY
ALL OUR STAR PLAYERS THOUGH WE DID SCREAM
DOWN THEY WENT THE OPPOSITE OF A DREAM TEAM
FIRST IN BOOZE, FIRST IN SHOES LAST IN THE A.L.
THEY LOOKED LIKE HEAVEN BUT PLAYED LIKE HELL
WHY DID WE THEN,WHY DO WE NOW LOVE THEM SO?
THIS ANSWER ALL BROWN FANS SHOULD KNOW
LIKE AN OLD HOUND DOG WITH FLEAS ON HIS SKIN
OUR BROWNS TRIED SO HARD TO SCRATCH OUT A WIN
NUMBER ONE IN LAUGHTER NUMBER ONE IN MIRTH
GOD BLESS OUR BROWNS THEY WERE WORTH
MORE THAN CHAMPIONSHIPS WE COULD'VE WON
THEY'LL LIVE IN OUR HEARTS 'TIL OUR DAYS ARE DONE
EVEN AFTER WE ALL ARE LONG GONE
THE MEMORY OF OUR BROWNS WILL LIVE ON
WHENEVER, WHEREVER THERE'S BASEBALL FUN
THEY'LL REMAIN THE CHAMPS FUN TEAM NUMBER ONE
