lyrics

Why be a pigeon
When you can be a peacock
Why entertain the thought of being drab
Look into my eyes
And you’ll soon realize
That I’m ecstatic to be
Living fab

It’s a real pleasure
My natural treasure
Counting immeasurable hues
There is crimson and silver
Forest green runs down the quiver
Fusia AND magenta
And a streak of royal blue

I love colors, Yes I do!
Won’t you be a peacock, too?
I love colors, take my advice
Maybe one day I’ll be A bird of paradise (and I’ll dance real nice)

Why be boring
Why be trite
Why not show some color now and then
You’re not a pidgeon
You’re not a crow
And you’re certainly not a hen

A peacock such as you
Should never be subdued
Strut and prance your feathers to and fro
It’s no shame to strut your train
Like a lion with his mane
A tail will tell your tale
No two peacocks are the same

I love colors, Yes I do!
Won’t you be a peacock, too?
I love colors, take my advice
Maybe one day I’ll be A bird of paradise.

Why be a pigeon when you can be a peacock?
Why be easy listening, WHEN YOU CAN ROCK!
