Today’s Song Lyric Sunday, Helen has asked us to find songs with color! This was easy, right? Wrong…there are so many songs with color in the titles and lyrics, it’s mind-boggling. Within a few minutes I’d thought of and wrote down around 30, without even looking for any! Now, I had to choose one, or two, like I do, and I liked all of them. Anyway, here’s my picks for today. Enjoy!

“Blue Navy Blue”, by Diane Renay, was released in 1964, from the album of the same name. It was written by Bob Crewe, Bud Rehak, and Eddie Rambeau, and is on the 20th Century Fox Records label.

Blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

He said he wanted to settle down
And let me be his girl
But first he had to do a little travelin’ around
And see the whole wide world

That’s why I’m blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

I got a letter yesterday from Tokyo
And a souvenir
A walky-talky wind-up little China doll
That says, “Wish you were here”

Blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

He’s comin’ home to see me on a weekend pass
A forty-eight hour day-ate
That boat he’s sailin’ on just better get here fast
‘Cause I can hardly wait

Till then I’m blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

Blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

He said he wanted to settle down
And let me be his girl
But first he had to do a little travelin’ around
And see the whole wide world

That’s why I’m blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

I got a letter yesterday from Tokyo
And a souvenir
A walky-talky wind-up little China doll
That says, “Wish you were here”

Blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

He’s comin’ home to see me on a weekend pass
A forty-eight hour day-ate
That boat he’s sailin’ on just better get here fast
‘Cause I can hardly wait

Till then I’m blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

Drop your silver in my tambourine
Help a poor man fill his pretty dream
Give me pennies I’ll take anything
Now listen while I play
My green tambourine

Watch the jingle jangle start to chime
Reflections of the music that is mine
When you drop a coin you’ll hear it sing
Now listen while I play
My green tambourine

Drop a dime before I walk away
Any song you want I’ll gladly play
Money feeds my music machine
Now listen while I play
My green tambourine
