I AM THAT MOUSE (Detroit, MI)
color me pink and make me beautiful....
anything pretty will do, pretty like you.
sad girl, painted in blue and black and gray,
make me new.
take me back.
wisk me away.
anything to be pretty, pretty like you.
color me red and make me beautiful...
anything color you prefer, just make me as pretty as her.
sad girl, painted in white and green and brown.
end the night.
close the screen.
kill the clown.
anything to be pretty, pretty like her.
from one end of the spectrum and back...i still end up in the color black
