Jelly Beans
and Sardines

The town was all covered
in brown smoke and goo,
and you'll never believe
tho' I swear that it's true...

...It started to sprinkle
on top of the goo.
And it changed into red,
orange, pink, yellow and blue.

There was crimson and egg plant
and peach tangerine,
and moose juice and honey dew
blue nectarine.

And even some colors
that I'd never seen.
Then I noticed one missing,
'twas jelly bean green.

But it wasn't just goo
that was missing the green.
Nowhere in the town
was the green to be seen.

In place of the green
was the color of goo...
...the color of colorful
goo. Yes, it's true!
