Lyrics: Colour Idioms Song

I saw red coz she'd left me in the dark.
She'd left me in the dark that we were in the red,
And being in the red was giving me the blues.
Then out of the blue comes a golden opportunity -
A golden opportunity for the black sheep of the family.
A black sheep born with a silver spoon in his mouth.
She was tickled pink over this rather grey area,
And you'd be green with envy if we showed our true colours.

I saw red coz she'd left me in the dark.
She'd left me in the dark that we were in the red,
And being in the red was giving me the blues.
Then out of the blue comes a golden opportunity -
A golden opportunity for the black sheep of the family.
A black sheep born with a silver spoon in his mouth.
She was tickled pink over this rather grey area,
And you'd be green with envy if we showed our true colours.
