lyrics

I would walk until my feet do pack it in with you
In a white and orange colourway, can't picture you another way
(Oh) To see you coming around in a different hue
I would celebrate your colourway and tell you you're the colourway for me

A slate grey, tan or olive tone
Aren't colourful enough to consider
A taupe upper or a russet sole
Won't move me to much more than a saunter
But give me Pantone 124 on the quarter, heel and toe
And I'd run around this town with a purpose
For to see you sitting sole-side up
In my wardrobe just does not do you justice

You are fully style and function all in one
Apt to hike, jog, stroll, jump and run
Your pigments add to an arresting sum
And every step is... so so-o-o-o-oft

I would walk until my feet do pack it in with you
In a white and orange colourway, can't picture you another way
(Oh) To see you coming around in a different hue
I would celebrate your colourway and tell you you're the colourway for me


A slate grey, tan or olive tone
Aren't colourful enough to consider
A taupe upper or a russet sole
Won't move me to much more than a saunter
Oh you might like to sheath your toes in beige and Bulgarian rose
Well thak's ok, I suppose, but it's nothing
Compared to persimmon and green or teal and tangerine
Or lemon and lime, and tiffany blue, they're colours I could not forget

You are fully style and function all in one
Apt to hike, jog, stroll, jump and run
Your pigments add to an arresting sum
And every step is... so so-o-o-o-oft

I would walk until my feet do pack it in with you
In a white and orange colourway, can't picture you another way
(Oh) To see you coming around in a different hue
I would celebrate your colourway and tell you you're the colourway for me


I'll never ever lace you wrong
And I, I'll tell you you're the only one
Won't let your colour fade in time
And I will take you to the places that I haven't yet ventured out

Never ever lace you wrong and I...
Tell you you're the only one I know...
Places that I haven't ventured out...

I would walk until my feet do pack it in with you
In a white and orange colourway, can't picture you another way
(Oh) To see you coming around in a different hue
I would celebrate your colourway and tell you you're the colourway

I'd walk until my feet do pack it in with you
In a white and orange colourway, or any vivid colourway
(Oh) To see you coming around in a different hue
I would celebrate your colourway and tell you you're the colourway
I'd celebrate your colourway and tell you you're the colourway
I'd celebrate your colourway and tell you you're the colourway for me
