If I had a ladder I'd climb up to the sky
And take my paintbox with me to paint your face up high
In yellow green and orange, purple red and blue
To paint the world by numbers is all I want to do

Painting by numbers is easy to do
Painting by numbers I want to paint you

And when I'm rich and famous to New York I will go
I'll talk to Andy Warhol on my own TV show
I'll throw fantastic parties and paint the white house red
I'll dine with Frank Sinatra and stand for president

Painting by numbers is easy to do
Painting by numbers I want to paint you

If I had a ladder I'd climb up to the sky
To tell the world I love you in letters eight miles high
And then I'll go to Russia to paint the Kremlin blue
To paint the world by numbers is all I want to do

Painting by numbers is easy to do
Painting by numbers I want to paint you
