While walking in a toy store
   The day before today,
   I over heard a Crayon Box
   With many things to say.

   "I don't like red!" said Yellow.
   And Green said, "Nor do I!"
   And no one here likes Orange,
   But no one knows quite why.

   "We are a box of crayons
   that really doesn't get along,"
   Said Blue to all the others.
   "Something here is wrong!"

   Well, I bought that box of crayons
   And took it home with me
   And laid out all the crayons
   So the crayons could all see

 They watched me as I colored
   With Red and Blue and Green
   And Black and White and Orange
   And every color in between

 They watched as Green became the grass
   And Blue became the sky.
   The Yellow sun was shining bright
   On White clouds drifting by.

   Colors changing as they touched,
   Becoming something new.
   They watched me as I colored.
   They watched till I was through.

   And when I'd finally finished,
   I began to walk away.
   And as I did the Crayon box
   Had something more to say........

   "I do like Red!" said the Yellow
   And Green said, "So do I !"
   And Blue you are terrific!
  " So high up in the sky."

   "We are a Box of Crayons
   Each of us unique,
   But when we get together
   The picture is complete"
