When you look into a mirror tell me what do you see?
Is it Pictures of Lily crying, you know what I mean?
I've been livin' high, I've been livin' low
Like a bird in the sky this is the way to go

What you gonna do with those faded blues you wear?
What you gonna do with those ol' rag blues?
What you gonna do with those ol' blue jeans you wear?
Ol' rag blues, ol' rag blues, ol' rag blues

Did you think it was forever? Well now you know
The summer sun keeps shining, shine through the blue
I've been livin' high, I've been livin' low
Never give up tryin', oh no, no, no

What you gonna do with those faded blues you wear?
What you gonna do with those ol' rag blues?
What you gonna do with those ol' blue jeans you wear?
Ol' rag blues, ol' rag blues, ol' rag blues

I can hear you callin' somewhere in the blue
Can you hear me callin' for you? For you?

What you gonna do with those ol' blue jeans you wear?
Ol' rag blues, ol' rag blues, ol' rag blues
