From the dimmest recesses of my brain, bt not necissarily in this order:

Yellow is the colour of my true love's hair,
In the morning, when we rise,
In the morning, when we rise.
That's the time, that's the time
That I love best.

Blue is the colour of my true love's eyes
etc.

Green is the colour of the sparkling corn,
etc.

Mindless and vapid unless you're awfully young and romantic -- Tom

I know it's posted somewhere, but with Shorty down, the search is not working.

Hi!

The above title are lyrics from a song in the 60's but although I don't remember the title of the song, nor the composer, it sounded like Donovan. If anyone knows the title of this song, please let me know.

Some of the lyrics are:

Purple hair, runnin' through the brain...don't seem the same...my misery. Whatever it is she put a spell on me.

Thats all that I remember. Thanks!

Guest, it might be worth starting a new thread for this, with the beginning of the lyrics as its subject. Under the present subject, not many people will realise what you're really looking for. Otherwise, I can't help. Good hunting!

That's it, GUEST

Purple haze, all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same.
Am I happy, or in misery?
Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me.

Here are the lyrics we have in the Digital Tradition. Any corrections, other than that we should probably spell the title "Colours"?



COLORS
(Donovan?)

Yellow is the color of my true love's hair
In the mornin', when we rise
In the mornin', when we rise
That's the time, that's the time, I love the best

Blue is the color of the sky
In the mornin', when we rise
In the mornin', when we rise
That's the time, that's the time, I love the best

Green is the color of the sparklin' corn
In the mornin', when we rise
In the mornin', when we rise
That's the time, that's the time, I love the best

Mellow is the feeling that I get
When I see her -- um-hmm
When I see her -- uh-huh
That's the time, that's the time, I love the best

Freedom is a word I rarely use
Without thinkin' -- um-hmm
Without thinkin' -- uh-huh
Of the time, yes the time, when I been low

Joe,

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!


Jay

Ooh, don't use the term Freedom without thinking, now that's some good advice for today, eh!
