Bobby Darin

Water Color Canvas

 


 

 

      (Whistling Melody ...)

 

            Married in the darkness on the evenin' of the mornin' we first met

            Laughin', jokin', lovin', smokin'

            Honey, I can taste you yet

            Traffic makin' music while the limbs of longin' gently intertwine

            These are pastel pieces of the pretty pictures painted

            On the watercolor canvas of my mind.

 

            Sleepin' in the hallway while we waited for the Super to arrive

            Fryin' pan for coffee

            'cause the only pot we had would not oblige

            Laughin' at the laundry that was burnin' while inside the oven dryin'

            These are pastel pieces of the pretty pictures painted

            On the watercolor canvas of my mind.

 

            An afternoon in Big Sur on the way from San Francisco to L.A.

            A brief and fleeting vision of the hallowed halls of Heaven

            What a day ...

            Conversation dancin' to the music of the ocean keepin' time

            These are pastel pieces of the pretty pictures painted

            On the watercolor canvas of my mind.

 

            Laying low in London living like the Lord of Chester Square

            Off the wall withdrawal

            With a modern Boticelli lady faire

            A Susie's column reject 'cause we ate while all the others dined

            These are pastel pieces of the pretty pictures painted

            On the watercolor canvas of my mind.

 

            (Whistling Melody ...)

 

            These are pastel pieces of the pretty pictures painted

            On the watercolor canvas of my mind.

 

            (Whistling Melody ...)

 

            These are pastel pieces of the pretty pictures painted

            On the watercolor canvas of my mind.
