She comes in colours everywhere
She combs her hair

She's like a rainbow
Coming, colours in the air
Oh everywhere
She comes in colours

Have you seen her dressed in blue
Seen the sky in front of you?
And her face is like a sail, speck of white so fair and pale
Have you seen a lady fairer?

Have you seen her all in gold?
Like a queen in days of old
She shoots colours all around like a sunset going down
Have you seen a lady fairer?
