ELO, Lyrics:
Mr. Blue Sky.

Sun is shinin' in the sky,
There ain't a cloud in sight
It's stopped rainin'
Everybody's in a play
And don't you know
It's a beautiful new day.

Runnin' down the avenue,
See how the sun shines brightly
In the city on the streets
Where once was pity,
Mr. Blue Sky is living here today.

Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why,
You had to hide away
For so long where did we go wrong.

Hey there Mr. Blue
We're so pleased to be with you
Look around see what you do,
Everybody smiles at you.

Hey you with the pretty face,
Welcome to the human race
A celebration Mr. Blue Sky's
Up there waitin' and today
Is the day we've waited for


Mr. Blue you did it right,
But soon comes Mr. Night,
Creepin' over, now his
Hand is on your shoulder,
Never mind I'll remember you this way.


Jeff Lynne

From the 1977 LP, Out of the Blue.

The very end of the coda of Mr. Blue Sky features a vocoder voice saying "please turn me over." As it's the last song on the third side of the Out Of The Blue album, it's instructing the listener to turn the record over for side four (which, of course, doesn't apply to modern CD or digital download technology). Despite several instances of official confirmation of what the voice says, doubt continues to persist amongst fans. This may be in part because several vocoder lines earlier in the song say "Mr. Blue Sky" and the ending sounds remarkably similar (with an extra syllable added). Also, the music video for Mr. Blue Sky features text across the screen during this section that says "Mister Blue Sky" (with an additional syllable added to "Sky"). The incorrect lyric fits quite well with the vocodor sound. It's unclear why the music video should have the wrong lyric shown, but it is very likely that whoever put it together understandably misheard the lyric and put the wrong text.
