Violent Femmes Color Me Once Lyrics

Last updated:

Color me once, color me twice.
Everything gonna turn out nice.
Everlasting arms, you gotta keep me from these false alarms.

Alarm, alarm I see you sad,
maybe I see you I'm glad,
maybe maybe the fire of her desire.

Patience, patience, said the man.
Patience, patience, I can't understand.
Patience like a man and a wife, I got patience on my neck like a cold cold knife.

I say Jack be nimble, Jack fall dead,
Jack bend over and give Jilly head.
Oh you gotta help my body heal my soul.

Dead men working a sinner, a saint,
mixing up a pail of paint,
painted the house, black as night.

When the sun came up the house was white.

Gotta go on, gotta go on.
we gotta go on, you gotta go on,
you gotta go on
go on
go on
