The Lyrics

And living color...
Ev'rybody's talkin' bout:
Lavender, evening primrose, pale turquoise, lemon chiffon, light cyan, ivory,
indigo, green yellow
fuchsia, fuchsia, fuchsia
When you are painting, give puce a chance
When you are painting, give puce a chance

Ev'rybody's talkin' bout:
Periwinkle, blanched almond, olive amber,
yellow oxide, raw sienna, gold and silver,
chartreuse, carnation,
Primary magenta
When you are painting, give puce a chance
When you are painting, give puce a chance

Oh Let's stick to it
Ev'rybody's talkin' bout:
Blue and yellow, teal and ruby, brown and violet, gray and ecru, nickel yellow,
Pyrrole orange, phthalo turquose, terre verte, red and cobalt, antique copper,
Ultramarine blue
When you are painting, give puce a chance
When you are painting, give puce a chance

Mason - nice job...funny...oddly enough a few of us a work were discussing exactly what "puce" actually was(it's pretty slow here this time of year) I look up a site on the 'Net that showed it...I'd give it a chance, but I'm not sure on what...I'd give your parody a chance at three "5's" from me, though ~ ~ ~

Stuart--thanks. Originally I was going to do a food one, "Give Peas a Chance" but I found that paint colors are even sillier than zucchini. Paul--I hope your monitor was calibrated. Puce can be nasss-ty! John Barry--Bring on the borscht! Agrimorfee--is this my brush with fame? Steven--Sorry I missed tangerine. I guess it wasn't an a-pealing color to me...
