Don't Mix the Colors

This song is by Beat Happening and appears on the 1996 reissue of the album Beat Happening (1985).

What you're painting
Is what we're saving
It's so much like the things I like about you
It's so bright
It's so pretty
Please do one thing for me
Don't mix the colors, I like them that way
Don't mix the colors, just let them stay

I like the red like the top of your head
I like the yellow, as bright as your hello
I like the blue, because it's as sincere as your 'how do you do'

What you're painting
Is good for framing
It reminds me so much about you
It's so bright
It's so pretty
Please do one thing for me
Don't mix the colors (x 6)
