MEANING OF THE BLUES (Bobby Troup / Leah Worth) as recorded by Julie London with Russ Garcia & his Orchestra 1957 Blue was just the colour of the sea, 'Til my lover left me! Blue was just a bluebird in a tree, 'Til he said "Forget me!". Blue always made me think of Summer, Cloudless Summer skies so fresh and warm, But now the blue I see is more like Winter, Winter skies with clouds about to storm. Blue was just the colour of his eyes, 'Til he said "Goodbye love!". Blue was just a ribbon for first prize, 'Til he said "Don't cry love!". And blues were only torch songs, Fashioned for impulsive ingenues, But now I know, Too well I know, Too well I know the meaning of the blues! Blue was just the colour of his eyes!
