Brown County Style Show
Mother Nature must have a reason
To decorate beautifully every season.
We never tire in the autumn time
To gaze again at the style sublime.
We ride along for many miles
The trees are dressed in the latest styles.
No woman either with dress or hat
Could ever make herself look like that.
The leaves are draped on all the trees
That wave and bow in the autumn breeze.
They are yellow and green and red and blue
And other shades of every hue.
All summer the styles are fresh and green
Lovelier dresses you’ve never seen.
But watch for Brown County in the fall
When that’s the most elegant show of all.
So far and near in the distant view
These styles present themselves to you.
Then you will decide Brown County shows
Excel those dresses with buttons and bows.
