"Blue Skies" is a song written by Irving Berlin in 1926. Lana Del Rey released a cover of the song as part of the soundtrack for Apple TV's series The New Look.

The cover's existence was first revealed by its producer, Jack Antonoff, in an interview with NME.[1] Del Rey's version is directly inspired by Ella Fitzgerald's 1958 rendition.

Lyrics[]

Blue skies smiling at me
Nothing but blues skies do I see
Bluebirds singing a song
Nothing but bluebirds all day long

Never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you're in love, my how they fly

Blue days, all of them gone
Nothing but blue skies from now on

Never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you're in love, my how they fly

Blue days, all of them gone
Nothing but blue skies from now on

Do-do-do, do-do-do
(From now on)

Oh, no, oh, no
Da-da, da-da-da, da-da-da
Da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da-da
Da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da-oh

Oh, ah-ha-ha-ha-ha, ooh
Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, da-da-da-da
(Never saw the sun)
