William was said to be a bad boy
met him behind the leaf of a door
William was
the saddest boy I ever saw
talked to me
talked to me
with his invisible tears

William was driving a dark blue car
at the moment but I'm sure he will change in a white one soon
talk to me
talk to me
let us have a green one too

promptly I took a fancy
for spending the rest of my days and nights with that boy
talk to me
talk to me
let us have a brandy or two

well, there's the heads of those
who turn away and those
who believe and believe in pure heart and hand

William must have a chorus in his heart and lilacs in his shoes
William is the sweetest boy I ever saw
talk to me
talk to me
Let us have a baby or two

Now that bad boy is away from me
but I don't mind that very much
cause when we meet again
talk to me
talk to me
let us have another day
or three

    Lyric CorrectionI have listened through it several times, and the last verse does not go like that. See here:

    "Now that bad boy is away from me
    But I don't mind it very much
    * Cause when he's back again *
    Talk to me
    Talk to me
    Let us have another day
    Or three"

    The starred like is in question. I distinctly here something like, "Cause when *blank* -ck again". Meet does not end with the K sound. Sorry. And I capitalized it below with my best guess about that line below.

    William was said to be a bad boy
    Met him behind the leaf of a door
    William was
    The saddest boy I ever saw
    Talked to me
    Talked to me
    With his invisible tears

    William is driving a dark blue car
    At the moment but I'm sure he will change in a white one soon
    Talk to me
    Talk to me
    Let us have a green one too

    Promptly I took a fancy
    For spending the rest of my days and nights with that boy

    Talk to me
    Talk to me
    Let us have a baby or two

    Now that bad boy is away from me
    But I don't mind it very much
    Cause when he's back again
    Talk to me
    Talk to me
    Let us have another day
    Or three

    General Commenti can't pick a top favorite from colour green even after listening to it for 3 years, all i know is that sibylle baier can really write a love song!! this is such a sweet song and it's all about being in love with a "bad boy" who is really the sweetest.
