Label HTML Select Tag

I was just working through the HTML Forms course because I'm building a site that needs select drop-downs. I created a select form that allows the user to select a color. My issue is the label tag puts the label "Color" outside the select tag and displays the first option on the drop-down. I want to display "Color" on the select drop-down and when the user clicks on it, the options come up. Any ideas?

    <option value="" disabled="disabled" selected="selected">Please select a color</option>
    <option value="1">One</option>
    <option value="2">Two</option>
