Colour Me in   (Rea Garvey) - STING 21804   (Uli Schingen)

 

 (Opener): SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE:

Tell me - what is life? - a life without colours
Can you see them? - have the years made us blind?
As a child - living lifeís imagination

Youíd close your eyes - ALLEMANDE LEFT and you WEAVE

And you - you - you - oh you colour me in Ė SWING your Girl and PROMENADE
Turn me Ďround when Iím wrong - you make me strong - you colour me in

 

 

†(Figure): HEADS PROMENADE - go HALFWAY around Walk in and SQUARE THRU FOUR hands and go

- go all the way and do the RIGHT AND LEFT THRU - VEER to the LEFT and FERRIS WHEEL you do

SQUARE THRU go THREE - to the Corner you SWING - PROMENADE Ďem again

Turn me round when Iím wrong - you make me strong - you colour me in

 

(Youíre the blue skies above - youíre so easy to love - you colour me in)

 

 

 (Middle Break): SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE

Pictures of angels - floating above - we all need - to be painted with love

ALLEMANDE your Corner - WEAVE THAT RING

And you - you - you - oh you colour me in - SWING and PROMENADE
Turn me round when Iím wrong - you make me strong - you colour me in

 

 (Closer): SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE

Have you ever stopped - and listened to your heartbeat?
Did the tears - make the colours start to fade?
If all the wrongs we ever did were not forgiven

Time would stop - ALLEMANDE LEFT and you WEAVE

And you - you - you - oh you colour me in - SWING and PROMENADE
Turn me round when Iím wrong - you make me strong - you colour me in

 

 

†(Tag): SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE

Give me the blue skies - the bright lights - I want some colours in my life
Give me the blue skies - the bright lights - I need your colours in my life!
 

 

 

ORIGINAL LYRICS:

Tell me - What is life? - A life without colours
Can you see them? - Have the years made us blind?
As a child - Living lifeís imagination
Youíd close your eyes - And all the colours went wild
Now the outlineís been drawn - On an empty page
And Iíve opened my eyes

And you you you - You colour me in
Turn me round when Iím wrong
You make me strong - You colour me in

Have you ever stopped and listened to your heartbeat?
Did the tears make the colours start to fade?
If all the wrongs we ever did were not forgiven
Time would stop And the world would turn to grey
You know I carry you with me Night and day
Yeah youíve opened my eyes

And you you you - You colour me in
Turn me round when Iím wrong
You make me strong - You colour me in

 

Yeah you you you - You colour me in
Youíre the blue skies above

Youíre so easy to love - You colour me in

Pictures of angels - Floating above
We all need -To be painted with love - Sweet Love

 

Give me the blue skies
Give me the bright lights
I need some colour in my life
Give me the blue skies
Give me the bright lights
I need some colour in my life
Give me the blue skies
Give me the bright lights
I want some colour in my life
Give me the blue skies
Give me the bright lights
I want your colour in my life
In my life
