Outrageous Orange, Laser Lemon, and Jungle Green.
That's what I said.
Wild Watermelon, Midnight Blue, Atomic Tangerine...
Radical Red, Sky Blue, and Shamrock too,
and Gold so true it glows.
I love the Razzmatazz, and Purple Pizazz,
and Razzle Dazzle Rose.

Every color's like an old friend.
Hot Magenta is a godsend.

I took the factory tour.
It really opened the door, and I at once became transfixed.
I know they're pieces of wax,
but I can never relax without my box of 96.


Crayola, Crayola's all that I know.
The colors, delicious, making a rainbow.
Crayola, I love you so.


I love them so much, every shade, every gorgeous hue.
It's no surprise
they're taking over everything that I say and do.
I'm gonna rise at dawn with no clothes on,
and color on my skin.
Colors of life and love from Heaven above,
absolve me of my sin.

I would wear them like a nightgown,
but they're getting kinda worn down.

I took the factory tour.
It really opened the door, and I at once became transfixed.
I know they're pieces of wax,
but I can never relax without my box of 96.

I love you Vivid Violet.
I love you Robin's Egg Blue.
I love you Screamin' Green,
and Purple Mountain's Majesty too.
I really love my babies
I really love my babies
I love my crayons and I love the way the taste


Crayola, Crayola's all that I know.
The colors, delicious, making a rainbow.
Crayola, I love you so.

    General CommentThis song represents a child's rather unhealthy attachment to crayons.
    This obsession reaches new levels in the second verse.
    "I'm gonna rise at dawn with no clothes on,
    and color all my skin."
    But I think this song could also look upon the happy memories of childhood, when the only concern you had was if you'd lost your powder blue. This song is the sort that gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling.
