  • I tried to do handstands for you
    I tried to do headstands for you
    Every time I fell on you yeah every time I fell
    I tried to do handstands for you
    But every time I fell for you
    I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue
    For you

    I tried to do handstands for you
    I tried to do headstands for you
    Every time I fell on you yeah every time I fell
    I tried to do handstands for you but every time I fell for you
    I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue

    For you ooh
    For you ooh
    So black and blue ooh
    For you ooh

    I grabbed some frozen strawberries so I could ice your bruising knees
    But frozen things they all unfreeze and now I taste like
    All those frozen strawberries I used to chill your bruising knees
    Hot July ain't good to me
    I'm pink and black and blue (For you)

    I got bruises on my knees for you
    And grass stains on my knees for you
    Got holes in my new jeans for you
    Got pink and black and blue

    Got bruises on my knees for you
    And grass stains on my knees for you
    Got holes in my new jeans for you
    Got pink and black and blue

    For you ooh
    For you ooh
    So black and blue ooh
    For you ooh

    Do doo do do do
    Do doo do do do
    Do doo do do do
    Do doo do do do
    Do doo do do do
    Do doo do do do
    Do doo do do do
    Do doo do do do Writer/s: Aaron Davis, Jonathan Wimberly, Caroline Elisabeth Polachek
