"belle"
Never turn your back
Great times attack
Inexpensive thrills

And I said belle
Of all the friends who care
Some should be seen
But never heard

Colours fly and catherine wheels
Poor girls cry
In the beauty of both worlds

Catch a boy fell falling
Fall in love fell falling
Catch a boy fell falling
Fall in love fell falling
Catch a boy fell falling
Out of the sky

''belle''
When the pulses rise
Love will tranquilize
Just before it kills

And I said belle
You turn them on
With your reflection
I know so well

Colours fly and catherine wheels
Poor girls cry
In the beauty of both worlds

Catch a boy fell falling
Fall in love fell falling
Catch a boy fell falling
Fall in love fell falling
Catch a boy fell falling
Out of the sky

Catch a boy fell falling
Fall in love fell falling
Catch a boy fell falling
Fall in love fell falling
Catch a boy fell falling
Out of the sky
Out of the sky

Colours fly and catherine wheels
Some girl cry
Over her boyfriend
When colours fly and catherine wheels

So when the colours fly
And when the catherine wheels
