Yellow is the colour of my true love's hair
In the mornin' when we rise,
In the mornin' when we rise,
That's the time, that's the time,
I love the best.

Blue's the colour of the sky
In the mornin' when we rise,
In the mornin' when we rise.
In the mornin' when we rise.
That's the time, that's the time
I love the best.

Green's the colour of the sparklin' corn
In the mornin' when we rise,
In the mornin' when we rise.
In the mornin' when we rise.
That's the time, that's the time
I love the best.

Mellow is the feeling that I get
When I see her, mm hmm,
When I see her, uh huh.
That's the time, that's the time
I love the best.

Freedom is a word I rarely use
Without thinkin', mm hmm,
Without thinkin', mm hmm,
Of the time, of the time
When I've been loved.
