Lyrics

I think I’ve given you the “I started thinking”
I wouldn’t do a thing, I was too chicken
When he left with you I felt so down
I couldn’t get myself up off the ground
With fear and frustration I was chicken

Chorus:
But now I blue cause I was yellow
Green with envy too
I was purple with the rage, I was really browned off
When he up and left with you.
My character is blackened
O Lord what can I do?
I’m purple, yellow, green, black, brown
That’s why I’m blue

I was seeing red, and I know what you must think
But I’d rather be blue than black and blue
And I didn’t want to raise a stink
I was white with rage but still
Your love for me must’ve been about nil
And if you come back, I’d be tickled pink!

Chorus:
Yes now I blue cause I was yellow
Green with envy too
I was purple with the rage, I was really browned off
When he up and left with you.
My character is blackened
O Lord what can I do?
I’m purple, yellow, green, black, brown
That’s why I’m blue

Musical Interlude

Chorus:
Yes now I blue cause I was yellow
Green with envy too
I was purple with the rage, I was really browned off
When he up and left with you.
My character is blackened
O Lord what can I do?
I’m purple, yellow, green, black, brown
That’s why I’m blue.
Yes now, I’m purple, yellow, green, black, brown
That’s why I’m blue.

Oh yeah!
