Listen to the words…

It is if “certain kind” means the kind you remember fondly.

Most songs by men are in one way or another.

I never saw it that way…

I didn’t get that meaning at all. I figured he was reminiscing over times past with a brown-eyed girl from his childhood.
If you’ve ever played in a creek or river that has a small waterfall you know there are often rainbows at certain times of the day. The spray keeps the rocks wet and the algae makes them slippery. Kids try to hide and move behind it. (Today kids would use some dumb selfie app that would put a rainbow in from of their bunny-ear bedecked, pale faces .)

Now that he is older and on his own she too has grown, obviously. And seeing her reminded him of the times when they were teenagers.
I’m using Occam’s Razor and will stick with the simple and nice meaning.

@Dutchess_III that is not true. If it were the Stones would have written “Paint it Brown”

Of course on the other hand there are the lyrics from Baba O’Reily:

“Don’t cry
Don’t raise your eye
It’s only teenage wasteland

Sally, take my hand
Travel south cross land
Put out the fire
Don’t look past my shoulder”

and then there’s Twisted Sister singing “We’re Not Gonna Take It”?

Hmmmm. Maybe you are right after all Dutchess…..

The Stones also dang “Make a dead man come…” @rojo.

Of course the women are no better:

What about Janis Joplin with “Cry, Cry Baby” and you don’t think she was really talking about taking a bit of her “heart” do you?

Pat Benatar: “If You Think You Know How to Love Me” , Takin’ It Back” and, of course, the “Ooh Ooh Song”..

Beyonce: “Gift from Virgo” and “That’s How You Like It”.

Even Aretha Franklin: “Her Little Heart went to Loveland” and “Take It Like You Give It”

Man, Rock and Roll is just nastiness set to music.

I always wondered about Microsoft using that song to roll out its Windows 95, @Dutchess_III,

”... You make a grown man cry.
You make a dead man cum…”

Really?

Um,. OK.

No, but “It’s raining men” is about a Bukkake party.

About as much as the Rolling Stones’ ‘Wild Horses’ is about Jesus Christ (yes, I actually heard some church dude try to seriously argue that one).

kritiper's avatar

If a “Brown Eyed Girl” was what you might have thought it was, couldn’t the song writer have just as easily written lyrics about “The Old Dirt Road?”

Zaku's avatar

They say that pervo-lyrics are in the minds of the listener.

filmfann's avatar

The song was originally called “Brown Skinned Girl”.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I finally read the lyrics. It’s about reminiscing. I’m with @LuckyGuy.

I sure hope not. Maybe you are thinking of the Rolling Stones’ “Brown Sugar.”
