Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Colors / Colours (Donovan)

The lyrics you have posted are from Donovan's original recording. In later versions, he sometimes inverted the order of verses two and three (or omitted the "green" verse entirely), and/or repeated the first verse at the end. These can all be found on YouTube.

But, for a truly bizarre lyric change, listen to this version done live in 1972.

Don't think I'll be doing that version any time soon!
