Maybe we could go to Coney Island
Maybe I could sing the national anthem
I, a white sweater, for the last white day
Of the summer

By my purple wig
For my mermaid video
Walk back to where we live
In a motel
Never knew

You call me lavender, you call me sunshine
You say take it off, take it off
You call me lavender, you call me sunshine
You say take it off, take it off

Heavy metal hour on T.V.
Diamond Dave and Ray late
And you salute me, Miss America
Because I am, I am

You call me lavender, you call me sunshine
You say take it off, take it off
You call me lavender, you call me sunshine
You say take it off, take it off

Maybe we could go to Coney Island
Maybe I could sing you to sleep
God bless the universe, god bless the ocean
God bless you and god bless me
God bless you and god bless me

You call me lavender, you call me sunshine
You say take it off, take it off
You call me lavender, you call me sunshine
You say take it off, take it off
