Lyrics UP ABOVE ME
ARE THE SKIES
LIKE THE TWINKLE
IN YOUR EYES,
THESE THINGS ARE
THE COLOR OF THE BLUES.
IN THE MAIL
YOUR LETTER CAME,
THE INK AND PAPER
LOOKED THE SAME,
BLUE MUST BE
THE COLOR OF THE BLUES.

BLUEBIRD SITTING
IN THE TREE
SEEMS TO SYMPATHIZE
WITH ME,
FOR HE'S NOT SINGING
LIKE HE USED TO DO.
THE PRETTY WATERS
IN THE SEA
FEEL AS COLD
AS YOU LEFT ME,
YES,
BLUE MUST BE
THE COLOR OF THE BLUES.

THERE'S A RAINBOW
OVERHEAD
WITH MORE BLUE
THAN GOLD AND RED,
BLUE MUST BE
THE COLOR
ANGELS CHOOSE.
A BLUE DRESS
YOU PROUDLY WORE
WHEN YOU LEFT
TO RETURN NO MORE,
BLUE MUST BE
THE COLOR OF THE BLUES.

BLUE DAYS COME
AND BLUE DAYS GO,
HOW I FEEL
NOBODY KNOWS,
LIFE IS MIGHTY EMPTY
WITHOUT YOU.
THERE IS A BLUE NOTE
IN MY SONG
THAT I SING
SINCE YOU ARE GONE.
YES,
BLUE MUST BE
THE COLOR OF THE BLUES.
