  • Blue, navy blue, I'm as blue as I can be
    'Cause my steady boy said "Ship ahoy"
    And joined the Nay-ee-ay-vee

    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 Nay-ee-ay-vee

    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 Nay-ee-ay-vee

    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 Nay-ee-ay-vee

    Ah-ahhhhhh
    "Blue, navy blue, I'm as blue as I can be"

    Ah-ahhhhhh
