da ba dee?

*Yo, listen up here's a story
About a little guy
That lives in a blue world
And all day and all night
And everything he sees is just blue
Like him inside and outside

Blue his house
With a blue little window
And a blue corvette
And everything is blue for him
And himself and everybody around
Cause he ain't got nobody to listen to

I'm blue
Da ba dee da ba die*

winter melancholy and depression are two blue devils. at twilight they are descending into hell accompanied by the dancing of carnival. in da ba dee? we will celebrate the transitional state in between the cold gloominess of winter and the azure-like brightness of spring. da ba dee? dreams of blue words riding a blue corvette in the search of blue whales. da ba dee? is watching smurf porn on blue screen cause smurfs were communists and communists have better sex… da ba dee? is being fed with blue pills and shrooms and party. da ba dee? is against the puritanical happiness industry, tyrannical self-control and torturing rituals of minimalism, cause i.k.b, cobalt, indigo, turquoise, sapphire ultramarine... da ba dee? happens in the blue house with a blue door in cologne otherwise known as temporary gallery center for contemporary art on Saturday 15 February from 9 pm onwards. yo, listen up here's a story about da ba dee?...

*I have a blue house
With a blue window
Blue is the colour of all that I wear
Blue are the streets
And all the trees are too
I have a girlfriend and she is so blue

Blue are the people here
That walk around
Blue like my corvette its in and outside
Blue are the words I say
And what I think
Blue are the feelings
That live inside me

I'm blue
Da ba dee da ba die*
