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.
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.
