Was (not Was) – Zaz Turned Blue lyrics

Zaz had red hair, he didn't care
He always laughed loud, he wasn't proud
Just a real easy guy who wouldn't tell a lie
But then one day Zaz turned blue
Zaz turned blue, what were we supposed to do
Zaz turned blue, what were we supposed to do
When Zaz turned blue
One night in the park for a lark
Zaz let Steve Brown fool around
Steve squeezed his neck, figured what the heck
But Zaz hit the ground, he was downed
Zaz turned blue, what were we supposed to do
Zaz turned blue, what were we supposed to do
When Zaz turned blue
After high school Zaz seemed cool
He worked on cars, went to bars
But then one day he went away
And became a Marine at the age of eighteen
But he didn't want to fight
Didn't do it out of spite
And he didn't want to die
No, he didn't want to die
And he seemed kind of strange
Could it be that he changed
On that night in the park
When he fainted in the dark
Zaz didn't die, lucky guy
There were no parades, how the glory fades
Now he shoots lots of pool and as a rule
He wears a silly grin on his chin
It all started when
Zaz turned blue, what were we supposed to do
Zaz turned blue, what were we supposed to do
When Zaz turned blue

    I believe it's about a young man who didn't want to go to war after high school. In a weak moment, he went to the park and I injected heroin into his neck and over dosed (turned blue). His resulting brain damage affected him for life and thus the clownish name Zaz because he became a simpleton that people sorta made fun of.
