THE MUSIC TO “BLUE SKIRT WALTZ” WAS ORIGINALLY AN OLD BOHEMIAN TUNE. IT WAS RECORDED IN 1949.
..I dream of that night with you,
Lady when first we met.
We danced in a world of blue,
How can my heart forget.
Blue were the skies, and blue were your eyes,
Just like the blue skirt you wore.
Come back blue lady, come back,
Don’t be blue any more.
I wandered alone one night,
When I heard an orchestra play.
I met you when lights were bright,
And people were care-free and gay.
You were the beautiful lady in blue,
I was in heaven just waltzing with you.
You thrilled me with strange delight,
Then softly you stole away.
