I remember way back when I was four
Lived in a small house, we were poor
Mama said, “I have something come look
A small pack of crayons and coloring book
A coloring book of animals in the zoo
Mama, “what color should I do?”
“Son, use any color, it’s just fine”
“As in life just be sure to stay in line.”
So excitedly I looked at all my choices
“Pick me, pick me”, as if they had voices
With eyes closed I picked one to do
I ended up coloring my monkeys blue.
I learned a good lesson that night
Stay within the lines of being right
It doesn't matter the color you use
In life there's a variety of views.
