a sunsetbonnet blue lyrics – billie holiday

irving kahal / sammy fain

a sunbonnet blue and a yellow straw hat
shy little he and she
were declaring love’s old story
in the shade of the old apple tree,,

a sunbonnet blue and a yellow straw hat
decided to say, “i do”
so they rode to june and glory
on a bicycle built for two
hear the past. the song is old.
the summer days are through
with silver threads among the gold
they still say, “i love you”

a sunbonnet blue and a yellow straw hat
are true to this very day
for he loves her in december
as he did in may
