"Mr. Blue Sky" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
The sun is shining in the sky
There ain't a cloud in sight
It's stopped raining
Everybody's in the play (?)
And don't you know it's a beautiful new day
Hey hey hey

Running down the avenue
See how the sun shines brightly in the city
On the streets where once was pity
Mr. Blue Sky is living here today
Hey hey hey

Mr. Blue Sky please tell us why
You had to hide away for so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong?
Mr. Blue Sky please tell us why
You had to hide away for so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong?

Hey you with the pretty face
Welcome to the human race
A celebration
Mr. Blue Sky's up there waiting
And today is the day we've waited for
Oh oh oh

Mr. Blue Sky please tell us why
You had to hide away for so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong?
Hey there Mr. Blue
We're so pleased to be with you
Look around see what you do
Everybody smiles at you

Mr. Blue you did it right
But soon comes Mr. Night creeping over
Now his hand is on your shoulder
Nevermind I'll remember you this
I'll remember you this way
Bah, bah, bah, bah, bah

    General CommentHilarious, not really, but sacastically. This song has no meaning, it's just there to be sung with a funky beat. Can't stop listening to Nerf Herder's - Siegfried and Roy though, so addictive. But this song means absolutely nothing, its about the sky and how blue it is, thus bringing smiles everywhere because it,s nice outside

    General CommentThis song is cool.
    For some reason it reminds me of Queen (the band, not the person).
    Kinda addictive.

    General CommentNo meaning? Meh, it appears to me that it's like.. they were upset for so long, and finally are happy(".Mr. Blue Sky please tell us why you had to hide away for so long (so long). Where did we go wrong?" "It's a beautiful new day" "Today is the day we've waited for" "See how the sun shines brightly in the city, on the streets where once was pity") Makes sense to me, but then again, my mind could just make it like that so I could relate to it.

    General CommentI'm surprised that they covered this and not the other three songs that together make up the "Concerto for a Rainy Day" symphony that Mr. Blue Sky finishes out.

    It makes way more sense when you've heard all of that.
