  • You'll never see a dark cloud hanging 'round me
    Now there is only blue sky to surround me
    There's never been a gray day since you found me
    Everything I touch is turned to gold

    So you can color my world with sunshine yellow each day
    Oh you can color my world with happiness all the way
    Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above
    And if you color my world, just paint it with your love
    Just color my world

    Just as long as I know you're thinking of me
    There'll be a rainbow always up above me
    Since I found the one who really loves me
    Everything I touch is turned to gold

    So you can color my world with sunshine yellow each day
    Oh you can color my world with happiness all the way
    Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above
    And if you color my world, just paint it with your love
    Just color my world

    Sunshine yellow, orange blossom
    Laughing faces everywhere, yeah

    So you can color my world with sunshine yellow each day
    Oh you can color my world with happiness all the way
    Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above
    And if you color my world, just paint it with your love
    Just color my world

    Color my world, color my world
