BLUE CRAYONS WRITE THE BEST
Mario Spinosi, copyright 2003

THE CARD SAID SEASONS GREETINGS AND THE PICTURE WAS OF THEM
LITTLE JIMMY SMILING WITH HIS MOTHER HOLDING HIM
ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CARD WAS A NOTE THERE JUST FOR ME
IT WAS PRINTED IN BLUE CRAYONS WITH THE LETTERS HARD TO READ

CHORUS

IT SAID I LOVE YOU DADDY EVEN THOUGH YOUR FAR AWAY
I HOPE YOU'LL COME HOME SOON AND I WISH THIS TIME YOU'LL STAY
I LEARNED TO WRITE SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE MOM IS HELPING ME WITH THIS
AND I HOPE YOU LIKE THE COLOR BLUE CRAYONS WRITE THE BEST

MY CAREER HAS TAKEN ME AWAY AND I'VE GONE FOR MUCH TO LONG
AND THESE COLORED CRAYON WORDS SHOW ME WHERE I BELONG
MY EYES BEGAN TO FILL WITH TEARS AND A LUMP ROSE IN MY THROAT
AS I READ AGAIN THE CRAYON WORDS MY LITTLE JIMMY WROTE

REPEAT CHORUS

I KNOW HE'S GROWING UP TO FAST AND I WISH THAT I WAS THERE
AND THE LIFE I ALWAYS DREAMED OF IS NOT THE LIFE I'M LEAVING HERE
SO I BOUGHT MYSELF SOME CRAYONS AND I KNEW WHICH ONE TO USE
AND I WROTE A LETTER BACK TO HIM IN CRAYON COLORED BLUE

MODIFIED CHORUS

IT SAID I LOVE YOU JIMMY EVEN THOUGH I'M FAR AWAY
AND I'LL BE COMING HOME SOON AND THIS TIME YOU KNOW I'LL STAY
YOU LEARNED TO WRITE SINCE I'VE BEEN GONE AND I THANK YOUR MOM FOR THIS
AND YES I LIKE THE COLOR BLUE CRAYONS WRITE THE BEST
