And it was called "Yellow".

Oh what a thing to have done,
And it was all "Yellow."

You know, you know I love you so,

      You know I love you so.

I swam across,
   G 
I jumped across for you,
      F
Oh what a thing to do.
Cos you were all "Yellow",

I drew a line for you,
      F
Oh what a thing to do,
And it was all "Yellow."

you know, For you I'd bleed myself dry,
F 
      For you I'd bleed myself dry.
