Red just sits there like a statue

We listened to Ken Nordine's spoken-word jazz album, "Colors." Nordine personifies 33 different colors. Olive sits and sits and sits and thinks, doesn't realize how appreciated she is -- she's about to be nominated for color of the year). "What's the use?" says Puce. Lavender is a very old lady.


Mystery Red



Red shoes
Pig
Socks
College
Schools
Hair
Jeans
Teeth
More and more red
Red just sits there like a statue
Red is a very dark person he have
Cobwebs in his old house he don’t
Have a head
Red
Red
Red
Red
Red
Red
Red has no neck
Red red red red red red
Red just sit there with no neck or head
He sit in an invisible chair nobody
Ever saw him before we call him
The mystery red

I hate Burgandy Yellow
I hate
Burgandy yellow
It is not my favorite
Color
But it
Has a funny
Way of
Talking he
Talks so
Funny he make me
Laugh I don’t
Like Burgundy
Yellow but
I love Burgandy
Specially on cars
And trucks so
I hate burgandy yellow
But I love me
some burgundy

Purple and Pink


Purple and Pink will make me sink down I will
Go drink
Me so I am guts
So help me fuse I tease like blood
And guts mixed together
And don’t forget bone
That make me strong
My lungs let me breathe in and out
Make me sing
Sing and shout
So purple and Pink
Make me sing
Sing with me
Have you ever sang?

Teal


As she walks in the door
We all stare at her
She’s tall and has long brown
Hair in a pig tail
But she’s not as she appears
She screams and shouts and
Kicks and punches
She doesn’t do her work
And has to make a frown
When she’s down
Teal
Teal
Sometimes I feel your pain
We may not be friends but
We get a long great
Teal
Teal
Teal and more and more
Of Teal

Silver



It is like liver nasty stuff
That make you shiver
Goodbye do not quiver

Green is cool
But blues is hot
Yellow is mellow
But
Red
Is
Dead

Gray

Gray was a bad old man one
day he broke out of the old gray home
He snatched a old gray bat and beat
the cops down that try to get him then
one day he ran all the way to mexico
and they found him in the
old gray restaurant
He spend time in Rainbow color prison
and one day he broke out of there


Blue Blue is the color of my
dream and blue make me
seem blue he is so beautiful
