lyrics

When I was a child
My only friend
Was the neighbor kid
Who mixed up blue and red.

He couldn’t see the difference
Now he’s a jailbird in blue.
Nobody sees the colour blue
Like I do.

When I see the ocean
Or look into the sky.
I pity all the people
Who are just passing by.

They don’t seem to notice
Don’t even have a clue.
Nobody sees the colour blue
Like I do.

If I were a painter
And I saw your face
I’d see hues of blue
No matter what your race

We’re all red underneath
But on the surface it’s blue.
Nobody sees the colour blue
Like I do.

Now that I’ve grown up
And invented the wheel
How could anybody
Know how I feel?

Even if they spent the day
In my suede shoes.
Nobody sees the colour blue
Like I do.
