Album: Grooving Kingston 12
Recorded: 1971

Who is Mr. Brown?
Mr. Brown is a clown
who rides tru town in a coffin.
Where can he be found?
In the coffin where there is three crows on top
and two is laughing.

Oh what a confusion!
Ooh yeah, yeah!
What a botheration!
Ooh now, now!
Who is Mr. Brown?
I wanna know now.
He is nowhere to be found!

From Mandeville to Sligoville,
coffin running around.
Upsetting, upsetting, upsetting the town,
asking for Mr. Brown.
From Mandeville to Sligoville,
coffin running around.
Upsetting, upsetting, upsetting the town,
asking for Mr. Brown.

I wanna know who is Mr. Brown.
Is Mr. Brown controlled by remote?
Oh! Calling duppy conqueror!
I'm the ghost-catcher!
This is your chance!
Oh! Bill big Bill bull bucker!
Take your chance!
Prove yourself!
Oh yeah!

Down in parade.
People running like a masquerade.
The police make a raid.
But... Oh! Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
They think it fade.

What a thing in town!
Crows chauffeur driven around.
Skanking as if they have never known
the man they call Mr. Brown.

I can tell you where he's from now.
From Mandeville to Sligoville,
coffin running around.
Upsetting, upsetting, upsetting the town,
asking for Mr. Brown.
