Want you to hear me when I say
That the blues is back,
And it's here to stay.

I wanna tell you a story,
A story all about the blues.
I want you to listen to me baby,
While I sing it to you.
Want you to hear me when I say
That the blues is back,
And it's here to stay.

I used to have me somebody,
She meant the whole world to me.
But she left me for someone else,
Left my heart in misery.
Yes, she did!
But I knew the day she left me
That the blues was gonna be a part of me.
Yes, it was.

Since you left me with the blues,
It was the last thing I thought I could use.
But I'm glad that you left me,
Left me with the blues.
If you hadn't given me the blues,
I wouldn't find myself someone sweet as you.

And I'm gonna tell you.
I said hey, hey, the blues is alright.
Hey, hey, the blues is alright.
I said hey, hey, the blues is alright.
Hey, hey, the blues is alright.
Alright (alright),
Alright (alright),
Every day and night.

Here we go Albert!
One more time!

Since you left me with the blues,
It was the last thing I thought I could use.
But I'm glad that you left me,
Left me with the blues.
If you hadn't given me the blues,
I wouldn't find myself someone sweet as you.

And I'm gonna sing it.
Hey, hey, the blues is alright.
Hey, hey, the blues is alright.
I said hey, hey, the blues is alright.
Hey, hey, the blues is alright.
Alright (alright),
Alright (alright),
Every day and night.

I said hey, hey, the blues is alright.
Hey, hey, the blues is alright.
I said hey, hey, the blues is alright.
Hey, hey, the blues is alright.
Alright (alright),
It's alright (alright),
Every day and night.

One more time!

I said hey, hey, the blues is alright.
Hey, hey, the blues is alright.
I said hey, hey, the blues is alright.
Hey, hey, the blues is alright.
It's alright (alright),
It's alright (alright),
It's alright (alright),
It's alright (alright),
It's alright every day and every night.

Yes, it is!
Want you to hear me when I say
That the blues is back,
And it's here to stay.
The blues is alright!
