SOUTH BRONX SCHOOL: The Color Red

The Color Red

Oy! Too little going on. Anyway...

I see red
And it hurts my head




Guess it must be something
That I read




It's the color of your heartbeat
A rising summer sun
The battle lost or won




The flash to fashion
And the pulse to passion
Feels red




Inside my head
And truth is often bitter
Left unsaid


 


Said red red
Thinking about the overhead
The underfed




Couldn't we talk about something else instead




We've got mars on the horizon
Says the national midnight star
(It's true!)





What you believe is what you are
A pair of dancing shoes




The soviets are the blues
The reds
Under your bed
Lying…

Can I request Blue Red and Grey from the Who for this posting?

How about Old Red Wine? that's a Who song about John Entwistle.

I didn't think of The Who. Though The Wiggles was a good choice though.
