Birds in the trees And a song on the breeze Blue River, why are you blue Light of the Moon And the starlight in view Must they bring sadness to you Must you sing of days gone by Must you always sigh Tell me why your song is sad, never glad Blue River, Blue River Do you hold the memory Of a vanished dream Sing to me of lips I've pressed and caressed Blue River, Blue River Till I saw my hopes Go drifting down your stream Can we both forget the night Summer night, in a little canoe When her blue eyes lost their light As we whispered "adieu" When I hear your lonesome song Something's wrong Blue River, Blue River Maybe it's because I'm just as blue as you Tell me why your song is sad, never glad Blue River, Blue River Do you hold the memory Of a vanished dream, dream, vanished dream Sing to me of lips I've pressed and caressed Blue River Till I saw my hopes Go drifting down your stream Can we both forget the night Summer night, in a little canoe When her blue eyes lost their light And we whispered "adieu", I said adieu-dieu-dieu When I hear your lonesome song Something's wrong Blue River Maybe it's because I'm just as blue as you (Transcribed from the Al Jolson recording by Mel Priddle - January 2006) *** The line "Can we both forget the night, Summer night" is sometimes sung as "Can we both forget that bright Summer night".
