A Different Blue Monday
Blue is the train that Coltrane blew.
Blue is the Note that made dreams come true.
Blue is John Lee Hooker and B.B. King.
Blues are what made Billie Holiday sing.
Blue is the sapphire in a wedding ring.
Blue are the eyes that you lose yourself in.
Blue is the sky, blue is the sea.
Blue is the intensity of lapis lazuli.
Blue is the colour of the NHS,
Flashing blue lights helping people in distress.
Blue are the helmets of peacekeeping troops.
And blue are the pills that I purchase from Boots.
Blue is the kingfisher, perched by a stream,.
And 'Blue is the colour' (for one London team).
Blue comes the moon on rare starry nights,
And blue is the colour of Supermans tights!
