Yesterday I got from Sinterklaas a colouring book, I was quite happy with. Such a thoughtful gift I want to share today with an amazing song of Barbra Streisand, singing Colouring Book.
For those who fancy coloring books
As certain people do
Here’s a new one for you
A most unusual coloring book

The kind you never see
Crayons ready?
Very well
Begin to color me

These are the eyes that watched him
As he walked away
Color them gray

This is the heart that thought
He would always be true
Color it blue

These are the arms that held him
And touched him
Then lost him, somehow
Color them empty, now

These are the beads I wore
Until she came between
Color them green

This is the room I sleep in
Walk in and weep in, hiding
That nobody sees
Color it lonely, please

This is the man
The one I depended upon
Color him gone

Songwriters: FRED EBB, JOHN KANDER
LIVE performance by Babra Streisand, 1963

  1. I always liked the combination of fragile and strength in this song. And the colours may sound corny to some one else, but to me they sound poetic, colourful.
