COLORFUL Sung in boxing musical ďGolden BoyĒ (Strouse / Lee) Sammy Davis Jr. (Spoken) Colorful copy, Mr. Drake? Why, sir, you donít know how colorful I done been (Sung) When I was very young, brand new upon the scene Had no experience, thatís right, I was green Then I grew up a bit, found out a thing or two Sometimes Iíd get unhappy In short, I was blue As far as politics goes, I never turned red Iím smarter than you might think And every time Iíve been told Boy, youíre good as gold Say, Iím just tickled pink Iíve tried all sorts of shades Put them to the test But I look at myself And black suits me best Black is chic Always correct for the house or yard Black is neat It goes with everything and doesnít try too hard Black is basic, youíll agree As the Duchess of Windsor would say, hah ďBlack is me!Ē Well, Iíve been yellow at times, Iím sorry to say Yes, Iíve been afraid to fight Drake? Iíve been scared as can be But take it from me Daddy, I ainít never turned white So when Iím old and grey And Iím heading for my last rest Guess Iíll still have to say That black, not Kelly green But black, not tangerine But black, thatís B-L-A-C-K, dig? Black suits me, ha-ha, best And thatís it!
