"Blue Overall," sometimes mistakenly titled "Blue Over All," is a song by Andy Partridge. It appeared as a B-side to the "This World Over" 7" single. It was later included as a bonus track on re-releases of The Big Express.

The demo appeared on Andy's Fuzzy Warbles Volume 5 in 2004.


Andy (on the demo): “Odd little demo for a Big Express potential. Crammed with booping and nattering Linn drum (the new toy, you know what men are like!). Two songs running in parallel seemingly. A strange depressed dreamlike dirge. Which brings us to... [‘Red Brick Dream’]”


Blue overall

Overall the rooftops blue birds fly apart

Blue overall

Overall the bones that cage this stupid heart

Got blues drawing crosses on my front door

Blues a'bringing buckets 'round the back

Blues trying to push me from me white fence

And tar me a darker bluey black

For all this time

I really thought you loved me

For all this time

You only rubber gloved me

Blue overall

Overall my anvil gives no further sparks

Blue overall

Overall my fears swim hammer headed sharks

Got blues drinking beer out in the kitchen

Blue dog is barking to be fed

Got blues spilling wine upon me heartrug

They're holding a party in my head

For all this time

I really thought you loved me

For all this time

You merely went and shoved me

I tried to lose myself in labour

The more I push the mirth

I'm giving birth to a baby's turning

Blue overall

Feeling blue overall

All over I'm turning blue
