Color Song?!?!

my son has started Pre-K and sings a color song...as my husband takes him to school each day (husband teaches in that school district which is actually in another town...long story), I havent gotten to ask the teacher about the lyrics...so i am trying to hunt them down instead of killing hubby for not asking. Any help will keep husband alive...lol

Red and Yellow
Blue and Green
Orange, Purple Brown

that is where my 4 yr old gets lost

but it ends with

Colors all around

and then i think there is a verse

Red for Stopsign
Yellow sunshine
Blue for Sky and Sea

i want to teach a Parenting class on colors and want the song!

It is on Hap Palmers CD called 'Learning Basic Skills Through Music Vol. 1'. Here are the lyrics:

This is a song about colors, colors you see them all around.
There is red on the stop sign, green on a tree, blue in the sky and sea.
This is a song about color, colors you see them all around.
It's about the happiest song in town. All you have to do is stand up and sit down.
All you have to do is stand up and sit down.

RED stand up, BLUE stand up, YELLOW and GREEN stand up.
RED sit down, BLUE sit down, YELLOW and GREEN sit down.
RED stand up, GREEN stand up, RED and GREEN sit down.
BLUE stand up, YELLOW stand up, BLUE and YELLOW sit down.

This is a song about colors, colors; You see them all around,
There is yellow on bananas and green on a tree, blue in the sky and the sea.

RED stand up, GREEN stand up, YELLOW and BLUE stand up.
RED sit down, RED stand up, YELLOW and GREEN sit down.
BLUE sit down, YELLOW stand up, GREEN and BLUE stand up.
GREEN sit down, BLUE sit down, RED and YELLOW sit down.

This is a song about colors, colors: You see them all around.
It's about the happiest song in town. All you have to do is stand up and sit down.
All you have to do is stand up and sit down. All you have to do is stand up and sit down.

Sung to: "Eency Weency Spider"

Orange is a carrot
Yellow is the sun
Green is the grass
Brown's a cookie when it's done
Purple is a plum and
Blue is the sky and
Black is the witch's hat and
Red's a cherry pie.

Color Song

The part of the song I remember is this:

(chorus)
This is a song about colors, colors you see them all around.
It's about the happiest song in town, all you have to do is stand up and sit down.

Red stand up
Blue stand up
Yellow and Green stand up
Blue sit down
Red sit down
Yellow and Green sit down

Repeat chorus
There is red on the stop sign
Green on the trees
Blue in the sky and the sea
