What is This Song? (Oh She Looks Like Helen Brown)

My Grandfather used to say, "You knock them dead when you dress in Red, but you look like Helen Brown (or hell in Brown)". I understand this is part of a song and would love to know the rest of the lyrics if anyone knows them. Thanks.

................, and how**

There he met a dame

Who took his watch and chain

Well, to the sheriff he went right away

Said "You gotta find that gal today"

When they asked him how she looked

They all heard him say

Oh, she looks like Helen Brown

Oh, she looks like Helen Brown

Rosy cheeks and eyes of blue

When she smiles, I'm tellin' you

She looks like Helen Brown

She's the hottest gal in town

When she goes by, the boys all cry

She looks like Helen Brown

She looks like Helen Brown

Yes, she looks like Helen Brown

When she's dressed in green or grey

Scotsmen through their dough away

She looks like Helen Brown

She's the hottest gal in town

Oh, she looks alright when she's dressed in white

But she looks like Helen Brown

(Oh, she looks like Helen Brown) And how

She looks like Helen Brown

When that baby starts to strut

Ev'rybody loves her, but

(She looks like Helen Brown) Yessir

She's the hottest gal in town

She knocks 'em dead dressed up in red

But she looks like Helen Brown

Your request brought tears to my eyes because it reminded me of a song my Papa (grandpa) used to sing to me when I was a little girl! What a cute song your grandpa sang to you! Here's the one mine sang:

I love you, a bushel and a peck!

A bushel and a peck, and a hug around the neck!

A hug around the neck, and a barrel and a heap

A barrel and a heap, and I'm talkin' in my sleep.

About you.

About you!

About you!

My heart is leapin'!

I'm having trouble sleepin'!

'Cause I love you, a bushel and a peck

You bet your pretty neck I do!

Doodle, oodle, oodle.

Doodle, oodle, oodle.

Doodle oodle oodle oo.

I love you, a bushel and a peck

A bushel and a peck, go and beats me all to heck!

Beats me all to heck how I'll ever tend the farm

Ever tend the farm when I want to keep my

Arms - about you -

About you!

About you!

The cows and chickens

are goin' to the dickens!

'Cause I love you a bushel and a peck

You bet your pretty neck I do -

Doodle oodle oodle

Doodle oodle oodle

Doodle oodle oodle, oo!

Good-bye now!

(they repeat the "doodles" as they exit)

Check "Hi-Heeled Sneakers." That may or may not be what you're looking for; good luck.

Just last week, I asked my daughter who was singing a song on a favorite tv show, cause it was driving me nuts, I wanted to download the song. My daughter told me to type: lyrics: & as many of the lines as you can remember, into Google, then you get all these sites that have various songs & the lyrics to them. I was lucky, the 1st site had the one I wanted. They tell you who sung it & the date. I was able to find it on itunes. I'd been going crazy for 3 years about this one song, but it was great to b able to find music when this type of thing comes up.
