Thinking Pink Right Now

My favourite colour is a mix of blue and green…I like pretty much anything along the spectrum between blue and green.  Pink is something that rarely features in my wardrobe.

However, one of the musicals I only found about three years ago “Funny Face” starring Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn featured an incredible number right at the beginning of the movie.

Kay Thompson is phenomenal in that movie!

MAGGIE.
Think pink! think pink! when you shop for summer clothes.
Think pink! think pink! if you want that quel-que 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—!
WOMEN.
—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.
MEN [painters, with NYC accents]
Think pink! think pink, it’s the latest word, you know.
Think pink! think pink and you’re Michelangelo.
WOMEN.
Feels so gay, feels so bright.
Makes you day, makes you night.
Pink is now the colour to which
you gotta switch!
MEN.
(Do what you gotta switch!)
WOMEN.
Every stitch!
MEN.
(Every stitch you switch!)
MAGGIE.
Think pink! think pink on the long, long road ahead.
WOMEN & MEN.
On the road, (& MAGGIE) think pink!
MAGGIE.
…think pink and the world is rosey-red
WOMEN & MEN.
(Everything’s rosey.)
MAGGIE.
Everything on the great horizon,
Everything that you can think—
and that includes the kitchen sink,
Think pink!
WOMEN & MEN.
Think pink, think pink
Think pink, think pink
Think pink, think pink!
