What is Pink?

(Christina Rossetti)

What is pink? A rose is pink
By the fountain's brink.

What is red? A poppy's red
In its barley bed.

What is blue? The sky is blue
Where the clouds float through.

What is white? A swan is white
Sailing in the light.

What is yellow? Pears are yellow
Rich and ripe and mellow.

What is green? The grass is green,
With small flowers between.

What is violet? Clouds are violet
In the summer twilight.

What is orange? Why, an orange,
Just an orange!


Color Song

Orange is a carrot,
Yellow is a pear,
Green is the grass,
And brown is a bear,
Purple is a plum,
Blue is the sky,
Black is a witch's hat,
And red is cherry pie.

Pitch Black


Baa, Baa, Black Sheep

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes, sir, Yes, sir,
Three bags full;

One for my master,
And one for my dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives in the lane.


The Black Hen

Hickety, pickety, my black hen,
She lays eggs for gentlemen;
Gentlemen come every day
To see what my black hen doth lay.

Paint Me Orange


Why is a Carrot More Orange Than an Orange?

(The Amboy Dukes)

First the world,
then boy then girl,
Six days it took in all.
In His image he designed us
with no thought of flaw.

(Chorus)
Now the question of perfection
lingers in my mind.
Why is a carrot more orange than an Orange?
Why are you greener than green?
Why do we sometimes believe
in things we've never seen?

Never doubt what it's about
and you'll get along fine.
But thy seeing the true meaning
proves you've got a mind.
My suggestion is inspection of humanity.

(Chorus)
I see why the ground is lower than the sky
and why sound can penetrate your mind,
But why is a carrot oranger than an Orange?


from Orange-Colored Sky

(Natalie Cole)

I was walking along, minding my business,
When out of the orange colored sky,
Flash, bam, alacazam, Wonderful you came by.

I was humming a tune, drinking in sunshine,
When out of that orange colored view
Wham, bam, alacazam, I got a look at you.

One look and I yelled timber
Watch out for flying glass.
Cause the ceiling fell in and the bottom fell out
I went into a spin and I started to shout
I've been hit, This is it, this is it, this is it.

Tickled Pink


Pink eucalyptus flowers

(Lesbia Harford)

Pink eucalyptus flowers
(The flowers are out)
Are scented honey sweet
For bees to buzz about.
Pink eucalyptus flowers
(The flowers are out)
Are fair as any rose
For us to sing about.


Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White

It's cherry pink and apple blossom white
When your true lover comes your way
It's cherry pink and apple blossom white
The poets say.

The story goes that once a cherry tree
Beside an apple tree did grow
And there a boy once met his bride to be
Long long ago.

The boy looked into her eyes, it was a sight to enthrall
The breezes joined in their sighs, the blossoms started to fall
And as they gently caressed, the lovers looked up to find
The branches of the two trees were intertwined.

And that is why the poets always write
If there's a new moon bright above
It's cherry pink and apple blossom white
When you're in love.
