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.
