All Things Brown and Beautiful,
All claimants large and small,
AllÂ actsÂ wise and wonderful,
The Lord Brown made them all.
The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
He taxed them, high or lowly,
And nicked their entire estate.
He gave us eyes to see them,
And blogs that we might tell
How great is Brown Almighty,
Who has made all things go so well.
