  • This track was recorded live,
    No double tracking.
    Come color up my life
    Oh painter
    Come color up my life
    Take away the misery
    Take away the strife

    Make me up a play
    Make the meaning gay
    For I don't need a poem
    Just give me words to say

    Let me sing a song
    Let me sing a song
    You don't have to worry
    Cause singer you can sing along Writer/s: IAN PAICE, JON LORD, NICHOLAS SIMPER, RITCHIE BLACKMORE, ROD EVANS
