Without a word of warning
The blues walked in this morning
And circled rund my lonely room
I didn't know why I had
That sad and lonely feeling
'till my baby called and said it's through
Yesterday I sang a love song
But today I sing the blues

I know the explanation
But that's no constellation
No matter how your love
You can lose
And since I lost
I rather walk around and worry
