The Browns - The three bells
Tekst: Marc Holtz alias Marc Herrand / Muziek: Jean Villard-Gilles / Vertaling: Bert Reisfeld
(1959)






There’s a village hidden deep in the valley
Among the pine trees, half forlorn
And there on a sunny morning
Little Jimmy Brown was born



Bung, bung, bung, bung
All the chapel bells were ringing
Bung, bung
In the little valley town
Bung, bung
And the song that they were singing
Bung, bung
Was for baby Jimmy Brown
Bung, bung
Then the little congregation
Prayed for guidance from above
“Lead us not into temptation
Bless this hour of meditation
Guide him with eternal love”



There’s a village hidden deep in the valley
Beneath the mountains high above
And there, twenty years thereafter
Jimmy was to meet his love



Bung, bung, bung, bung
All the chapel bells were ringing
Bung, bung
’Twas a great day in his life
Bung, bung
’Cause the songs that they were singing
Bung, bung
Was for Jimmy and his wife
Bung, bung
Then the little congregation
Prayed for guidance from above
“Lead us not into temptation
Bless, oh Lord, this celebration
May their lives be filled with love”



From the village hidden deep in the valley
One rainy morning, dark and gray
A soul winged its way to heaven
Jimmy Brown had passed away



Bung, bung, bung, bung
Just a lonely bell was ringing
Ah ah
In the little valley town
Ah ahahaha
’Twas farewell that it was singing
Ah ah
To our good old Jimmy Brown
Little Jimmy Brown
And the little congregation
Bung, bung
Prayed for guidance from above
Bung, bung
“Lead us not into temptation
May his soul find the salvation
Of Thy great eternal love”
