'Here's to the girl,
with eyes of brown,
Who cheers you up,
when you're feeling down,

Here's to the girl
with eyes of blue,
Who has a nice smile,
and a heart so true,

Here's to the girl,
with eyes of green,
Whose silky hair,
is the fairest I've seen,

But, no matter their hue,
Yours are best, know why?
'cause yours laugh when mine laugh
and cry, when mine cry.'

- Variation -

"Here's to the girl with eyes of blue,
Whose hear is kind and love is true;
Here's to the girl with eyes of brown,
Who's spirit proud you cannot down;
Here's to the girl with eyes of gray,
Whose sunny smile drives care away --
Whate'er the hue of their eyes may be"
