Steve: We've gotta find a paw print
That's the first clue
We put it in our notebook and now what do we do?
Blue's Clues, Blue's Clues

The Viewers: Blue's Clues!

Steve: We've gotta find another paw print
That's the second clue
We put it in our notebook
Now what do we do?
Blue's Clues, Blue's Clues.

'Cause when we use our minds
And take a step at a time
We can do anything...

Trivia

  • In addition to a few modified/omitted lyrics and different instrumentation, the entire version for "Blue's Big Pajama Party" was sung quietly since Sidetable Drawer is asleep.
    • This version's instrumental was also among the background music that played in Blue's Art Time Activities.
    • The version for "Bedtime Business" has the same beginning music, but every other part of it sounds the same since Sidetable is awake.
  • The version for "Blue's Big Musical" had additional trumpets playing (especially at the beginning and end) and Steve singing a few scat sounds at the end.
    • In the soundtrack version, Steve's scatting isn't heard, but the extra trumpets remain.
  • Click here for Play Blue's Clues in the beginning.
  • If one refers to this as the Blue's Clues Theme Song, this song should not to be confused with the opening sequence or Another Blue's Clues Day.
  • The seasons 1-5 and Bluestock versions were in G major, while the season 6 version is in A flat major.
  • The first episode of the original show where the viewers did not shout "Blue’s Clues!" was the Season 1 finale, Blue’s News, unlike all nineteen episodes of Season 1, making it the only Season 1 episode to not have the kids shout these words after each verse.
  • This song wasn’t featured in “The Songs We’ve Sung” on 100th Episode Celebration.
    • On top of that, the latter two episodes did not feature Sidetable's face.
  • A modified version of the song from the What's New, Blue? idents was used in ¡Un Día Con Plum! because of it's aforementioned lyrics from that episode.
  • Audio of the "Blue's Clues, Blue's Clues" part over the original version was used in some versions of the Coming Up Next bumpers for Blue's Clues on Noggin from 2000-2002. Click here to view it.
  • Dress Up Day features a re-recording of Joe's vocals for this song. Strangely, it's the only episode to use this rerecording as every episode since reverts back to the original version
  • The season 6 version is shorter. This includes the modified lyrics "To play Blue's Clues, we gotta find three pawprints", instead of individual lines discussing each pawprint. This is probably an attempt to save time, due to the Blue's Room segments. Plus, the song got a semitone higher (A-flat major).
  • This song wasn't sung or featured in 100th Episode Celebration, Blue's First Holiday, The Legend of the Blue Puppy, and Skidoo Adventure.
  • In the reboot episodes "Getting Glasses With Magenta" and "Spooky Costume Party with Blue", Magenta joins in the song with Blue and Josh. Even jumping towards the screen with Blue.
