I'm just mad about Saffron
Saffron's mad about me
I'm just mad about Saffron
She's just mad about me

[Chorus: ]
They call me mellow yellow
(Quite rightly)
They call me mellow yellow
(Quite rightly)
They call me mellow yellow

I'm just mad about Fourteen
Fourteen's mad about me
I'm just mad about Fourteen
She's just mad about me

[Chorus]

Born high, forever to fly
Wind velocity nil
Want to high, forever to fly
If you want your cup our fill

[Chorus]

(So mellow, he's so mellow)

Electrical banana
Is gonna be a sudden craze
Electrical banana
Is bound to be the very next phase

They call it mellow yellow
(Quite rightly)
They call me mellow yellow
(Quite rightly)
They call me mellow yellow

[Chorus]

(Oh so mellow, oh so mellow)
