Busking, St Ives w 3 String Cigar Box Guitar - Magic Paints, with dancing children

(I turn the camera round to the dancing children about a minute in)
This is a song I wrote for my Grandson when he was a toddler. Thought I’d play it for these children who had been dancing to the previous song. They danced to three or four songs, which gave their Mum’s chance to sit down and chat for a bit… (They hadn’t met before)

LYRICS:
Magic Paints

I have got some magic paints,
everything I paint with them comes true.
I’m mixing up some red and yellow
and lots and lots of blue.
Yeah I will paint a perfect day for you.

I’ll paint all of your favourite things
and lots you’re never seen.
Some of them will be so strange
you’ll think you’re in a dream.
I’ll paint some cows in sky blue pink,
some pigs fluorescent green,
a spotty cat with sixteen legs
eating an ice cream.

Yeah I have got some magic paints,
everything I paint with them comes true.
I’m mixing up some red and yellow
and lots and lots of blue.
Yeah I will paint a perfect day for you.

I’ll paint a rocket that will take us
right up to the moon.
There we’ll eat some floating peas
with a giant spoon.
I’ll paint us up some aliens,
we’ll take them home with us.
We will get some funny looks
when we get on the bus!

Yeah I have got some magic paints,
everything I paint with them comes true.
I’m mixing up some red and yellow
and lots and lots of blue.
Yeah I will paint a perfect day for you.

When I’m old and getting bored,
need something new to see,
then it will be time for you
to paint something for me.
For now I’ll make the most of it
before the paints run dry.
I’ll paint us a hot sunny day
and wings so we can fly.

Yeah I have got some magic paints,
everything I paint with them comes true.
I’m mixing up some red and yellow
and lots and lots of blue.
Yeah I will paint a perfect day for you,
I will paint a perfect day for you,
yeah I will paint a perfect day for you!

Beautiful song and scene!

How old is Spike now? About 8? Has his Granny insisted on a proper name now? ; )

Love that rocking happy song.  I bet those dancers put a grin on you.  Sounding wonderful.  Have a nice autumn.

thanks Brian and Doug, yep a few good minutes of connecting with people through music  and forgetting the pandemic briefly is great!

It’s always fun to see children respond to music. So unselfconscious and authentic. Thanks for getting out there and inspiring it and sharing it with us bemusic!

It’s great to see kids dancing about again, especially during this pandemic we’re in now!! Thanx for sharing :)
