  • Lady pick your feet up
    Come and lay beside me
    Show me things I've never known before
    Seven days of wonder
    Come and pray beside me

    I guess I'm through believing
    No one's waiting for me
    Think I woke up living on my dreams
    You black eyed husky woman
    Come and lay beside me
    Black eyed husky woman
    Come and stay beside me

    She ain't just another rainbow
    Silver lining in the sky
    She ain't just another rainbow

    Adam and the Devil got me thinking
    'Bout women so I walked right up to her
    Adam and the Devil got me thinking
    'Bout women so I talked right up to her

    I said I ain't got no time to waste
    So do the things you're told
    Give me seven days of wonder
    Come and stay beside me

    Adam and the Devil got me thinking
    'Bout women so I walked right up to her
    Adam and the Devil got me thinking
    'Bout women so I talked right up to her

    And I said I ain't got no time to waste
    So do the things you're told, yeah
    Seven days of wonder
    Come and stay beside me

    She ain't just another rainbow
    Silver lining in the sky
    She ain't just another rainbow
    Not the same as you and I

    She ain't just another rainbow
    Silver lining in the sky
    She ain't just another rainbow
    Not the same as you and I

    She ain't just another rainbow
    Silver lining in the sky
    She ain't just another rainbow Writer/s: MICHAEL JAMES ROGER SHEPSTONE, STEPHEN ERIC ENNEVER
