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 dear. So many chaps fixated on orgasms and periods. 'comes' ' colours', well of course that's it. Nah, mick/ someone has seen a lady he adores, he watches her every day dressed differently. One day blue one day gold..yes she's narcissistic, showing off combing her hair....which he notices but he's smitten. I could be wrong...'pale as a sail' is not a nicely poetic image...lol.yet he describes her a lady fair. Hes smitten. She colours his world.perfect wedding song for a groom smitten by his bride.

    A Rolling Stones pop song with Mick Jagger that could make one feel is all about our Earth's beauty and Her beautiful colors of the rainbow. But in which also sets and lifts you up in relation to one exotic Lady of ''the catholic church'' with all Her exotic and beautiful colors of the rainbow. And I don't mean in relation to Mary the Mother of Jesus from the Bible that followed the Rainbow's sign of God's promise. Only by which in this song ''She'' came down to us as ''hijacked rainbow of illusions'' that wants us to enjoy and indulge ourselves in ''Her'' beauty, dough at Their satanic Majesties Request orders. Which in symbolic form could also represent the beauty of the once angelic Lucifer in us that have been deceived with, the now known satan the devil that came around and can appear itself to us as one beautiful earthly little lady dressed in the most dazziling colors of the rainbow.

    I never knew what this song meant until I had an orgasm with an explosion of color included. It's an extraordinary experience and I've loved the song even more ever since. Seems easy to figure out what it means but you don't need to know to enjoy the music.

    I was a bit dismayed and shocked when I read this, because I’ve always loved this tune. But here is what I read and knowing the Stones I suppose I believe it: It is a song about a woman having an orgasm when she is on her period.

    This is a satirical song by the Rolling Stones. It is often mistakenly used for weddings such as a father/ daughter dance or for a procession down the aisle for the bridesmaids or worse...for the bride herself.
    This song has use of dischord and slightly off key strings, arranged by JPJ of Led Zep. It is no mistake that the Stones are doing juvenile 'la la la's' in this song, they are making a mockery of the 'beauty' and lightheartedness that the woman questionably has.
    It basically alludes to the fact that she is easy and a chore to be around but she believes herself to be a delight. Some people believe that this song also alludes to the fact that she is promiscuous. All in all not an appropriate wedding song. Although of course a woman who walks down the aisle to this has clearly made the wedding all about herself so maybe it's perfect!
