As recorded by the NAT "KING" COLE TRIO with Stan Kenton & His Orch., August 16th 1950: I was walkin' along, mindin' my business When out of an orange-coloured sky (Flash! Bam! Alakazam!) Wonderful you came by I was hummin' a tune, drinkin' in sunshine When out of that orange-coloured view (Flash! Bam! Alakazam!) I got a look at you One look and I yelled "Timber" "Watch out for flying glass" 'Cause the ceiling fell and the bottom fell out I went into a spin and I started to shout "I've been hit! (This is it! This is it! I-T-It!)" I was walkin' along mindin' my business When love came and hit me in the eye (Flash! Bam! Alakazam!) Out of an orange-coloured sky (Instrumental Break) One look and I yelled "Timber" "Watch out for flying glass" 'Cause the ceiling fell and the bottom fell out I went into a spin and I started to shout "I've been hit! (This is it! This is it! I-T-It!)" I was walkin' along mindin' my business When love came and hit me in the eye (Flash! Bam! Alakazam!) Out of an orange-coloured, purple striped Pretty green polka-dot sky (Flash! Bam!) Alakazam and goodbye ******************** As recorded by DORIS DAY with The Page Cavanaugh Trio, August 21st 1950: I was walkin' along, mindin' my business When out of an orange-coloured sky Flash!

I got a look at you One look and I yelled "Timber" "Watch out for flyin' glass" 'Cause the ceiling fell in and the bottom fell out I went into a spin and I started to shout "I've been hit! This is it! This is it!" I was walkin' along, mindin' my business When love came and hit me in the eye Flash! Bam! Alakazam! Out of an orange-coloured sky I've been hit (Dood-doo-yoo, dood-dood-duh-doo-yoo, dood-dood-doo-yoo) I've been hit (Dood-doo-yoo, dood-dood-duh-doo-yoo, doo-doo-yoo) (She was walkin' along, mindin' her business) (When out of an orange-coloured sky) Flash!
