lyrics

violet high

hey there - you in that red hat
i like your style
what's your name, gimme your name
or is that just the kind of thing
that gets in the way

hey there - you in that blue shirt
i like your style
what's your name, gimme your name
or is that just the kind of thing
that gets in the way

CH
i'll try anything once and
that includes you - i've
got to get that violet high, one's
red and the other one's blue

red whispers sweet somethings in my ear, but
blue, you put the lies back in truth or dare
blue, your right hand slips into my left, but
red, i've got my other hand wrapped
right around your chest

[CH]

you'd think the difference was
day and night, but
i tell you that purple shade is
quite all right
take the stage
count to five
when the elephant ass
begins to cry

blue approves my achromatic photos, and
red wears whigs of any color in the rain -
see, red, blue and i,
we put our opinions aside - we all
play in the same sandbox and get each
other violet high

see, once upon a time,
there was only one party,
but after ham, mad, pink and jack
all began to get rowdy,
everybody started picking sides
and fighting the gentleman's war
but it's
been over two hundred years
and i can't figure
out what they're fighting for

[CH]x2
