Mixed Up Colors

Updated on December 27, 2009

Mixed Up Colors

Colors they are everywhere

Red and green and blue

There’s yellow and there’s black and white

Just to name a few


Do you know where orange comes from

Or what red and blue will get?

Mix those two together

To get beautiful violet


Blend red and yellow in a bowl

And much to your surprise

A bright bold orange will appear

Right before your eyes!


And if you have a pretty blue

But you really would like green

Just add some yellow to that blue

For the best green you’ve ever seen


Changing colors can be fun

You can blend and mix and shake

If you put them ALL together

What color will you make?


Think of every single color

I’m sure you have the nack

If you shake those colors up real good

You’ll end up with basic black!
