OUR BED IS GREEN

Our bed is green
I sleep with Jean
Who is supreme
In my daydream

Our bed is green
And Florentine
Will know that she'll
Sleep with Camille

Aquamarine is harder to find
Ultramarine is inside the mind

Our bed is green
And you're obscene
I know your health
Depends on wealth

Incarnadine is blood on the bed
And crystalline is the diamond's head

Our bed is green
Sleep with the queen
I will attempt
With what I dreamt

Our bed is green
And here's Pauline
The three of us
Will now discuss

Fairy-queens and forbidden fruits
We join Colleen in our birthday suits
