my colouring book lyrics – dusty springfield

“my colouring book”
(originally by barbra streisand)

for those who fancy colouring books
and lots of people do
here’s a new one for you
a most unusual colouring book
the kind you’ll never see
crayons ready?
very well
begin to colour me

these are the eyes that watched him as he walked away
colour them grey
this is the heart that thought he would always be true
colour it blue

these are the arms that held him and touched him
lost him somehow
colour them empty now
these are the beads i wore
until she came between
colour them green

this is the room that i sleep in and walk in
and weep in and hide in
that n*body, n*body’s seen
oh, colour it lonely, please

this is the man whose love i depended upon
colour him gone
