Blue Skies:

Blue skies smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies do I see

Bluebirds singing a song
Nothing but blue skies 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

Near the end you’ll see a reference to “Blue days…”. To “feel blue” is a metaphor for sadness, so a blue day is a day you feel sad. Obviously this song is about feeling so happy about life now, the sun is always shining, everything is going right, and his “blue days, all of them gone”.
