"Blue Skies" is as song Frank Sinatra recorded in 1941 under Tommy Dorsey and his orchestra.[1] This arrangement by Sy Oliver was Sinatra's fifteenth recording under the Victor label.

History[]

Irving Berlin composed this song as a last-minute addition to the 1926 Rodgers and Hart musical Betsy.[2] The song has become a popular standard from the start, featured in encores from Miss Baker who initially performed the song, to being featured in several films including the first full-length motion picture, The Jazz Singer.

Lyrics[]

Blue skies, smilin' at me
Nothin' but blues skies do I see
Bluebirds singin' a song
Nothin' but bluebirds all day long

Never saw the sun shinin' so bright
Never saw things lookin' so right
Noticin' the days hurryin' by
When you're in love, my, how they fly

Blue days, all of 'em gone
Nothin' but blue skies from now on

Never saw the sun shinin' so bright
Never saw things lookin' so right
Noticin' the days hurryin' by
When you're in love, oww, how they fly

Blue days, all of 'em gone
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
