The Brownie Pop Flies song is dedicated to the Saint Louis Browns Fan Club. Although the St. Louis Browns left Saint Louis over 60 years ago, the Fan Club holds in their hearts their magnifcent memories of their beloved St. Louis Browns. Sadly, the Browns never won a World Series in all the decades that they played at Sportsman's Park. Never the less, their
fans had many beyond magical moments.
Although the Browns tried they were never good enough. The major offensive weapon in their arsenal was their thousands of pop flies which only led to more outs and lost games. Brownie Pop Flies became a symbol of the Browns so much so that the Saint Louis Browns Fan Club's magazine is called "Pop Flies." From this I had the idea of creating the song Brownie Pop Flies. I hope the song will please the most tenacious of baseball fans the St. Louis Browns Fan Club and all of who deeply cherish baseball and love good humor.
Many thanks to Bill Rogers the President of the St. Louis Browns Fans Club for permitting the masthead of their Pop Flies Magazine to be used as the Artwork for the song Brownie Pop Flies on CD Baby and the other various music companies.

It is a wonderful fun song about one of the most beloved teams of the past which remains in the present and will continue into the future. The Brownie Pop Flies were never enough but like the Browns they were the right stuff!
BROWNIE POP FLIES
A MILLION MEMORIES OF SPORTSMAN'S PARK
IN DAY OR NIGHT GAMES OH WHAT A LARK
WE NEVER WON A WORLD SERIES IN THE FALL
BUT WE WERE CHAMPS POPPING UP THE BALL
DECADES ROLL BY IN OUR HEART'S EYES
WE STILL SEE BROWNIES POPPING UP POP FLIES
NO TEAM BUT NO TEAM HIT THEM AS HIGH
POPPING THEM INTO THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY
LAZY POP FLIES TWISTING AND TURNING
LEFT US SIGHING AND TRULY YEARNING
FOR HOMERS,TRIPLES AND DOUBLES TOO
TOO FEW OF THOSE OUR BROWNS COULD DO
LINE DRIVES BY OUR FOES PUT TEARS IN OUR EYES
OUR TEAM BATTLED BACK WITH OUR FAMOUS FLIES
IF OUR BROWNS HAD STRAIGHTENED THEM OUT
THEY'D HAVE GONE FURTHER THAN THE BABE COULD CLOUT
OUR BROWNIE POP FLYS WERE NEVER GOOD ENOUGH
YET, LIKE THE BROWNS THEY HAD THE RIGHT STUFF
FADE WITH LAST COUPLET AFTER SEVERAL TIMES.
