Scarlet were the clothes she wore.
That was the color I’m sure.
If you wear red tonight.
I will not feel at all right.
If those are the colors I see,
it will bring back a bad memory.
Please, I don’t want to spoil the party.
Seeing you in red will be too much for me.
I do want to hold your hand.
But please, grant my small demand.
When I see you standing there,
Anything but red is what I want you to wear.
If you want me to love you,
then wear something in green or blue.
Please don’t wear red tonight, Ms.
It’s loathsome, yes it is.
