The Lyrics

You find a rhyme for "mauve"
The power of mauve is a powerful clue
Make a he- man gay if he knows that hue
Paint a room, and your friends yell "Brav"-
"O" what a color, that's the power of mauve

Puce and magenta --tan and cream
All prove a preference for the "other" team
Ask about that shade, mmmmm, and answer hear
Power of mauve will sort the straight from queer

Don't need tellin', don't need why
Don't need a rainbow card to sort this guy
It's sure and it's simple, gets right to the point
And you just might save some time
That's the power of mauve
That's the power of mauve

I am very familiar with American artist Huey Lewis, and he had some great hits in the 80s, this one being my all time favourite amongst them! Bravo, Mr. Duncan!

I don't need to find a rhyme with Mauve to 5 vote this. PS- Suave perhaps? Not perfect but close enough.

Well, it's a great parody about those colors you never hear of, but it is disappointing that only 1/4 of the song is done, so, no vote...

Have ye been feelin' a touch-o'-the-lavender lately, Highlander?
