The Three Degrees – Shades Of Green lyrics

Shades of green
Was the last thing that you seen
As you left your hungry child
And kissed him on his brow
And you walked away, and suddenly waved goodbye

You never gonna kiss his lips or hold his hand
(Never, never, never, never gonna)
You never gonna see him grow up to becoming a man
You wanna show and tell the world of what you done
Although you know you could provide for your son
Although you know you did just what you have to do
But doing what you did is still bothers you
Sometimes that passes this life has moved along
Never-ending memories still lingers on
On and on, on and on

Shades of green
Never leave your restless dreams
You can hear your baby cries
You can see him in the night
Wrapped in green and you left him far behind

You never gonna see him play or roam about
(Never, never, never, never gonna)
You never gonna hear him "mama" ringing out
(Mama, mama)
Though your thoughts keep coming to your mind each day
You punish yourself and then you kneel and pray
Oh, I wish if you were me and I were you,
I can mend the hurt that you were going through
Take my hand and uncover your eyes to what you see
Let's make a brand new life for you and me
Oh, you and me, you and me

Shades of green
Was the last thing that you seen
As you left your hungry child
And kissed him on his brow
And you walked away, and suddenly waved goodbye

Shades of grees
Never leave your restless dreams
You can hear your baby cries
You can see him in the night
Wrapped in green and you left him far behind
