As Long as Your Eyes are Blue
by
A. B. 'Banjo' Paterson

"Will you love me, sweet, when my hair is grey
And my cheeks shall have lost their hue?
When the charms of youth shall have passed away
Will your love as of old prove true?

"For the looks may change, and the heart may range
And the love be no longer fond;
Will you love with truth in the years of youth
And away to the years beyond?"

Oh, I love you, sweet, for your locks of brown
And the blush on your cheek that lies --
But I love you most for the kindly heart
That I see in your sweet blue eyes.
For the eyes are the signs of the soul within,
Of the heart that is leal and true,
And, my own sweetheart, I shall love you still,
Just as long as your eyes are blue.

For the locks may bleach, and the cheeks of peach
May be reft of their golden hue;
But, my own sweetheart, I shall love you still,
Just as long as your eyes are blue.

"The Bulletin" 7 Nov 1891



Blue Skies
         
          Blue skies, smilin’ at me
Nothin’ but blues skies do I see

Bluebirds singin’ a song
There’s nothin’ but bluebirds all day long

Seems like all the days are hurryin’ by
When you’re in love, my how they fly

Those blue days, all of them gone
Nothin’ but blue skies from now on

.....

Seems like all them days are hurryin’ by
Cause when you’re in love, then my how they fly

Them blue days, all of ’em gone
And there’s nothin’ but blue skies from now on
