Nothing But The Blues

 

My reds and oranges are missing

So are my yellows and my greens

My reds and oranges are missing

So are my yellows and my greens

My blacks and my browns are just nowhere to be seen.

 

I lost my favorite purple crayons

The ones I really hate to lose

I lost my favorite purple crayons

The ones I really hate to lose

I've lost every other color; I've got nothing but the blues.

 

I've lost almost all my crayons

I've got nothing left to choose

I've lost almost all my crayons

I've got nothing left to choose

I've lost every other color; I've got nothing but the blues

 

I can color the sea or the sky

I can even color Paul Bunyan's big blue ox, "babe"

I can color the sea or the sky

I can even color Paul Bunyan's big blue ox, "babe"

But what else can I color when blue's the only color in the box.

 

I've lost almost all my crayons

I've got nothing left to choose

I've lost almost all my crayons

I've got nothing left to choose

I've lost every other color; I've got nothing but the blues.
