The Browns, they are from Cleveland
but thereby hangs a tale:
the owner moved them to Baltimore—
a team that wasn’t for sale.
The Browns, they are from Cleveland
but thereby hangs a tale:
the loyalest fans in the world—
received a kick in the tail, cause
the owner moved them to Baltimore—
a team that wasn’t for sale.

He said a few short months before
(It must have been a dream):
“I’ll never move the team,” he lied!
“There’d never be such a scheme,” he lied!
“As long as I own the team,” he lied!
“I’ll never move the team,”
‘Twas all just mirrors and steam!
‘Cause now we know what lying
and money-grubbing thing
that Art Modell was trying,
and so to him we sing:
Go to hell!
Go to hell!
To hell! To hell! To hell!
Go directly to hell Art Modell!
Go to hell / Art Modell!
Go to hell / Art Modell!
Go to hell!!

For taking our Browns you will fry!
fry!———
O sad goodbye, our feelings high
for years gone by.
Our team has flown, the dog sans bone,
fans all alone, Oh, hear our moan!
So much for that, now we say.
The team is Art’s, he can take it and run away.
Cleveland’s not to be had!
We’ll get even not mad!
We’re playing football today!
Today! We’re playing football today!
Today! We’re playing football today!
No! No! No!
Nobody can take our mem’ries
of Graham, Kosar, and Sipe.
Our pride is intact
O Art, that’s a fact
and we laugh at you and your type: ha! ha!
Now that our Browns are back
we’ll kick your greedy butts.
Forever you’ll lose—
it’s only your dues—
and Baltimore will go nuts: ha! ha!
Their governor crying, “Aw shucks!” ha! ha!
All for a few measly bucks!
Ha!-ha!-ha! Ha!
Ha!-ha!-ha! Ha!
Bow! wow! wow!
