Color me black if you color me just like you
Color me angry if you color me less than I do
(Whoa, what's your color?)
Yeah, what's your color?
(Whoa, what's your color?)
What's your color?

Color me happy if you teach me what I need to know
Color me gone if you don't, if you don't
'Cuz every child needs to grow, this I know

(Whoa, what's your color?)
Oh, what's your color, yeah?
I wanna know
(Whoa, what's your color?)
Oh, what's your color?
Listen
(Listen)

Love is my color
When I'm shown love in return
But when I am not
It's a bet you can guess what I have learned

What's my color? Hey

Color me green
(Color me green)
If I cannot have what you've got
Color me blue
(Blue)
Until I do 'cuz the fire will sho 'nuff be hot
Yes, it will

(Whoa, what's your color?)
What's your color, yeah?
Hey yeah
(Whoa, what's your color?)
What's your color, yeah?

Oh, make me a promise
(Make me a promise)
Oh, make me a promise
(That whatever you color me)
That whatever you color me

You will at least color me
Then I can color you too
What's your color?

(Whoa, what's your color?)
What's your color, yeah?
Hey, color

(Whoa, what's your color?)
What's your color?
(Whoa, what's your color?)
What's your color, yeah?

What's your color?
Make it love
What's your color?
Mine is love

(Whoa, what's your color?)
Yeah
(Whoa, what's your color?)
What's your color?
(Whoa, what's your color?)
