Think Pink! Think pink when you shop for summer clothes.
Think pink! Think pink if you want that quelque chose.
Red is dead, blue is through,
Green’s obscene, brown’s taboo.
And there is not the slightest excuse for plum or puce
Think pink! Forget that Dior says black and rust.
Think pink! Who cares if the new look has no bust.
Now, I wouldn’t presume to tell a woman
what a woman ought to think,
But tell her if she’s gotta think: think pink!
RIP Patti Page (November 8, 1927 - January 1, 2013).
