“Think Pink!”

It’s Kay Thompson’s Birthday!

Needless to say we’re already in a celebratory mood what with the complete Democratic takeover of congress. And nothing can dampen our spirits, especially the “mainstream” blather about “bi-partisanship” which Grover Norquist reminds us is the political equivalent of “date rape.”

So break out the Roofies and

KAY: Girls, girls, girls, girls… Listen: take this to all the designers; I want dresses made up in exactly this shade of pink.Babs: take this round to Kaiser Delmont, I want shoes and stockings in exactly this colour. Laura: Everything goes pink! I want the whole issue pink; I want the whole country pink! Lettie: Take an editorial: “To the women
of America…”-no, make it to the women everywhere: “banish the black, burn the blue, and bury the beige! From now on girls…
Think pink! think pink! when you shop for summer clothes.
Think pink! think pink! if you want that quelque chose.
Red is dead, blue is through,
Green’s obscene, brown’s taboo.
And there is not the slightest excuse for plum or puce
-or chartreuse.
Think pink! forget that Dior says black and rust.
Think pink! who cares if the new look has no bust.
Now, I wouldn’t presume to tell a woman
what a woman oughtta think,
But tell her if she’s gotta think: think pink-!

-for bags! pink for shoes!
Razzle, dazzle and spread the news!
And pink’s for the lady with joie de vive!
Pinks for all the family.
Try pink shampoo.
Pink toothpaste too.
Play in pink, all day in pink,
Pretty gayin pink.
Drive in pink, come alive in pink,
Have a dive in pink.
Go out dancing but just remember one thing:
You can get a little wink
If you got a little pink
In your swing.

Think pink! think pink, it’s the latest word, you know.
Think pink! think pink and you’re Michelangelo.

Feels so gay, feels so bright.
Makes you day, makes you night.
Pink is now the colour to which
you gotta switch!

(Do what you gotta switch!)

Every stitch!

(Every stitch you switch!)

Think pink! Think pink on the long, long road ahead.

On the road, (& MAGGIE) think pink!

…think pink and the world is rosey-red

(Everything’s rosey.)

Everything on the great horizon,
Everything that you can think-
and that includes the kitchen sink,
Think pink!

Think pink, think pink
Think pink, think pink
Think pink, think pink

( Oh and it’s Severn Darden’s Birthday too!)
