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,(Pant, Pant, Pant)
See how the sun shines brightly
In the city on...

    From a previous poster:

    "If you’ve suffered from mental illness then you know straight away this song is about those rare sweet moments when your depression lifts and you just feel alive one more time. It feel so simple like you’ve cracked the code. How was it ever that bad. And even while you’re basking in the glorious light of mr blue sky, mr night has his hand on your shoulder guiding you back to darkness again. This song makes me so happy and so sad at the same time. It holds a special place in my heart."

    Nailed it.

    I felt like if your a Christian then you'd probably believe that when you refer to Mr. Blue Sky, you think of the lord.

    On a BBC Radio interview, Jeff Lynne talked about how he came up with this after he locked himself away in a Swiss chalet attempting to write ELO's follow-up to A New World Record. "It was dark and misty for two weeks, and I didn't come up with a thing. Suddenly the sun shone and it was, 'Wow, look at those beautiful Alps.' I wrote Mr. Blue Sky and 13 other songs in the next two weeks."

    I think Mr. Blue Sky is a song about having bad times for so long that you just expect them. When "Mr. Blue Sky" appears, you can tell the good times are here.
    "Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why, you had to hide away For so long" is more of a question why the good times didn't get here that quickly.
    Another lyric, "But soon comes Mr. Night, Creepin' over, now his Hand is on your shoulder, Never mind I'll remember you thus way." Is a reminder that the bad times will come back but you have to remember this one moment of happiness.

    The happy ending of a "concerto for a rainy day".
