She's A Rainbow
The Rolling Stones Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

She comes in colors everywhere
She combs her hair
She's like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

She comes in colors everywhere
She combs her hair
She's like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

Have you seen her dressed in blue?
See 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?

She comes in colors everywhere
She combs her hair
She's like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
Mmm, everywhere
She comes in colors

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

She comes in colors everywhere
She combs her hair
She's like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

She's like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air




Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

This is a very Beatle song from the Rolling Stones.

@caveman385

Sgt Pepper upped everyones game to change, no coincidence that Her Satanic Majestys Request came out after Sgt Pepper in the same year and what Beatles done. Yes No 1 even managed to influnce the 2nd biggest band.

@@frankcastle4547 Well I meant that this song sounds very similar to some beatles songs, for example Lucy in the sky with diamonds but you're right I wanna be your man is a beatle song sang by the Rolling Stones.

Never will forget, driving in my 67 firebird with my mother. This song came on the radio and my mother said "why can't your Rolling Stones sing something beautiful like this". I replied " mother, this is the Rolling Stones".

@hopebgood

Oh my mum's like that now. She loves a few Oasis songs and will sing along with them and then a minute later she'll be like "I hate Oasis so much. They're so obnoxious...." Nothing changes eh mate? 😉

@starboards

That's great
