A Song Called Yellow

(this is a lyrical parody of a song by Coldplay)


Look at the snow

Look how it shines for you

I did something there for you

Now it's all yello-o.


I wrote a tribute to your teeth

I took a shine to them

For they were all yello-o.


It's got appeal for me

I'm just so strange you see

A very peculiar fello-o.


I found one yellow rhyme too

When I was feeling mello-o

Seeking inspiration from Shakespeare's Othello

If only jealousy weren't bloody green

It really should be yello-o


Your voice is so damn beautiful

Espesh when you really bello-o

And you're doing such special things

Don't worry I won't tello-o

Those fine things you do

They make me yell-o: "ooh!"

I'm just such a lucky fello-o who

Would lose all his life-blood for you

Though it sounds stupid too

Then I'd sure turn myself yello-o.

Nice one Frank. Topical too with all the arty-farty reports following the vandalism of that Mark Rothko painting by Vladimir Umanets (who claims to be one of the founders of “Yellowism”-- which he describes as “neither art, nor anti-art”). But who the yellow cares??? :biggrin:
