I was blue, just as blue as I could be
Ev'ry day was a cloudy day for me
Then good luck came a-knocking at my door
Skies were gray but they're not gray anymore

Blue skies smiling at me,
Nothing but blue skies do I see.

Bluebirds singin' a song,
Nothing but blue birds all day long.

(Willie Nelson and Ella Fitzgerald versions:)
   Never saw the sun shining so bright,
   Never saw things going so right.
   Noticing the days hurrying by,
(Frank Sinatra version:)
   All the days are hurryin' by
(Common to Nelson/Fitzgerald/Sinatra versions:)
   When you're in love, my, my, how they fly.

Blue days, all of them gone -
Nothing but blue skies from now on.

(Second verse - Ella Fitzgerald version)
I should care if the wind blows east or west
I should fret if the worst looks like the best
I should mind if they say it can't be true
I should smile, that's exactly what I do
