Blue Overalls Lyrics

I'm sitting here thinking, it's puzzling me,
why when you feel blue, you feel unhappy?
I'm wearing my favourite blue overalls
and overhead a blue sky is smiling at me.
So blue doesn't really make me feel sad,
instead I am feeling, especially glad!
So blue doesn't really make me feel sad,
instead I am feeling, especially glad!
