The Lyrics

Hellish is the color of that dude’s mug (face)—
Looks like orange on that guy,
Look of orange on that guy.
It’s not lime,
No, not lime,
That one would guess.

Blue’s the color that he likes—
I’m just joking. . .a red guy.
I’m just joking, red’s his kind.
Likes to fight
Day and night
Those cyan pests.

Seen such color on a face before—
The bright orange on that guy?
That’s bright orange on that guy!
How it shines,
Wow! it shines—
Watch it fluoresce.

Yellow has a meeting with bright red—
The admixture’s. . .you know!
The admixture will show
On that guy’s,
On that guy’s
Facial aspect.

“Freakish” the word I’d use for that hue;
There’s no pink in that mug—
Not pink, that elephant.
Call that guy,
Call that guy
Schmuck à l’orange.

Good lyrics and rhyming, but was that meant to be about Hellboy or a bad color TV.

Thanks, 2Eagle. The reference is to John Boehner.

Another somewhat cryptic meaning, JAB. Thanks for explaning this good job. I don't dislike Boehner (he's from a nearby district in the neighboring state) but Schmuck a l'orange is priceless. Bush, who never met a word or name he couldn't mutilate, kept calling him "Boner"! (In the style of Donovan) I call that fellow yellow. ;D
