The Standells – Paint It Black

Lyrics:

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colours anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls go by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
I see a line of cars and they’re all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
It’s like a new born baby, it just happens every day
I look inside myself and see my heart turned black
I see my red door I must paint it black
Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the facts
It’s not easy facin’ up, when your whole world is black
No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the settin’ sun
My love will laugh at me before the mornin’ comes
I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colours anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls go by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
I want to see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I want to see the sun, blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black
Got to have it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I want to see the sun, blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black

There’s also an Italian version – amongst others- of this song (the original was written by The Rolling Stones):
