You may like to refer to the actual Natalie Cole version, when practising:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9W2hOr-CB4

Here's an inspiration for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wHNySlNyuM

You will be using a microphone, and are encouraged to "make this song YOUR OWN" i.e. add melodic embellishments; jazzify the song in your own way; add some improvisation - using the text or with scat syllables; and, remember really PERFORM the song by moving to the music and completely engaging in the tune. Sing from memory, and if you forget the lyrics, take a page from Ella Fitzgerald's book, and scat or improvise your way through until you remember. Here's some inspiration on that:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YI5fU6ZbyaA Most of all, have fun.

Here are the lyrics:
Natalie Cole – Orange Colored Sky Lyrics
I was walking along, minding my business,
When out of the orange colored sky,
Flash, bam, alacazam, Wonderful you came by.
.
I was humming a tune, drinking in sunshine,
When out of that orange colored view
Wham, bam, alacazam, I got a look at you.
.
One look and I yelled timber
Watch out for flying glass.
Cause the ceiling fell in and the bottom fell out
I went into a spin and I started to shout
I've been hit, This is it, this is it.
.
I was walking along minding my business
When love came and hit me in the eye
Flash, bam, alacazam,
Out of the orange colored sky
.
Well, one look and I yelled timber
Watch out for flying glass.
Cause the ceiling fell in and the bottom fell out
I went into a spin and I started to shout
I've been hit, This is it, this is it.
.
I was walking along minding my business
When love came and hit me in the eye
Flash, bam, alacazam,
Out of the orange colored, purple stripes,
Pretty green polka-dot sky
Flash, bam, alacazam,
Went the sky
Songwriters: MILTON DELUGG, WILLIE STEIN
