Roses are red, Violets are blue, That's what they say, but it really isn't true. Roses are red, and apples are too. But violets are violet, not really blue. Oranges are orange, but Greenland's not green. A pinky's not pink, so what does it mean? To call something blue when it's not is to defile it, But what the heck, it's hard to rhyme with 'violet'
