Van Morrison - Blue and green


Blue and green

Blue and green 1
Got my song in blue and green
Blue and green
Wrote my song in blue and green
Well, I'd say till when I'm well, I mean
Blue up endless sky
And mother nature's green
I left them, I wonder why,
Just taking in this country scene
Driving through the land
Understanding blue and green
Sometimes it feel like, baby
That I've been seeing red
Sometimes it feel like, baby
That I've been seeing red
Woke up early one morning
Mr Blue and blame glass 2 standing round my bed
Blue and greeny 3
That's the colour that I see
Blue, blue, blue, blue, blue and green
But that doesn't mean that you should envy me
Hear what I’ve said, I say what I made it
With blue and green
Early in the morning
Till tile upfilled I'm seeing red
Early in the morning
Till upfilled I'm seeing red
Gotta blues all in my breakfast
And green all in my head
Blue blue blue blue blue blue blue blue
Blue, blue and green
Sky is blue
And mother nature's green
Keep on driving through the land
Taking in the country scene

Would you be interested in translating this song to French?

You're lucky I saw the message in the right window, you forgot to put the brackets around my nickname Regular smile
Well frankly I'm not sure I can translate this song. The lyrics are a bit strange for my Cartesian mind.
I'll think about it and see if I can come up with some decent French, but I can't promise anything.
