From the recording Outside the Lines

Lyrics

Outisde the Lines


My aunt Delilah sent a box
It had a bag of marbles and a pair of socks
And underneath the peanut packing
A picture book with something lacking
No colors were inside
Just exactly how the pictures looked was up to me to decide

So I'm going to color outside the lines
I think that that would suit me very very fine
The pictures were so nice before
I just think they need something more
So I'm going to go explore
Outside the lines


I think I'll make this palm tree blue
And top it with a top hat at the tip-top, too
Then I think it would be neat-o
To see that tree in a tuxedo
For a fancy dance
With multi-colored hobnail boots and polka-dotted pink pants

I'm going to color outside the lines
That is just exactly what I have in mind
The pictures have no complication
'Til I provide some augmentation
From my imagination
Outside the lines

My coloring book isn't bad
It has been some of the most fun I've ever had
But the images that's it's depicting
Can be a little too restricting
To the colors in my heart
So I will get a pad of paper and I'll make a new start

Drawing pictures outside the lines
I'm going to make my own design
Something that is just mine
I have so many things today
To think and draw and do and say
Just in my own way
Outside the lines
Outside the lines
Outside the lines
