The Lyrics

Shouldn’t I Have Brown Eyes, Too? By Jeffrey Moran

Don’t know why my eyes are blue.
My daddy had big brown eyes.
And my momma’s brown eyes cry.
Seems I should have brown eyes, too.

Brown color is a result
Of the pigment melanin.
Mom and Dad’s eyes have brown hue.
Why don’t I have brown eyes, too?

Blue eyes aren’t blue due to pigment.
Absorption of long light wavelengths.
Short light wavelengths scattered about the eye.
That’s why my eyes are blue like the sky.

Blue eyes are a recessive trait.
And brown eyes dominate.
(Spoken: and because of heterozygosity)
Two browns can have a blue.
And that is why my eyes are,
That is why my eyes are,
Yeah, why my eyes are blue.
