Blue and that after drinking just one can of beer

“One little beer can be alright, 
One big black beer, or maybe a lite.
Two beers down you begin to glow, 
And you’ll be singing, before you know.”

(J. Olivarez in Drinking beer)

I very much desire the mail

Die Post bringt keinen Brief für dich:
Was drängst du denn so wunderlich,
Mein Herz?

Nun ja, die Post kömmt aus der Stadt,
Wo ich ein liebes Liebchen hatt',
Mein Herz!

(W. Müller in Die Post)

It is colorful along the track

"When I bring to you colour'd toys, my child,
I understand why there is such a play of colours 
On clouds, on water, and why flow'rs are painted in tints:
When I give colour'd toys to you, my child."

(R. Tagore in The Crescent Moon, no. 9)

Quite a row of them sitting there

"At night when reddest flowers are black
Those who once sat thereon come back;
Quite a row of them sitting there,
Quite a row of them sitting there."

When the postman has forgotten to ring twice

"Eight o'clock;
The postman's knock!
Five letters for Papa;
  One for Lou,
  And none for you,
And three for dear Mamma."
