Good evening ladies and gentleman, it is an honor to be here tonight with you everybody. I wanna say hello and welcome to the party. We are Blues Explosion and wanna play some rock 'n' roll. Now ladies and gentleman this is not the devil's music but it feels like the devil' time. We are not in the service of the devil but sometimes I feel his sick breath on my behind. Said I feel so bad sometimes. I wanna sing about it in my song, I want everybody, I said I want everybody...

I want someone to help me with these blues
I'm gonna hang up my rock 'n' roll shoes
Take one in the head and one off the wrist
Won't you help me, please help me Miss
Check it out now
It'll wreck your mind
Destroy your health
What good is whinin'
When you need help

I didn't need no one I thought I knew better
Before I used to walk but now I only crawl
This burning cross, this life that I choose
Won't someone please, please
Help me with these blues

Well I been feeling bad, so down for so long
'Bout the only thing that I got left is some sweet sad song
And pay some dues
If you want help with your blues then pay some dues
But I'm so tired of all this misery
C'mon please baby, please baby set me free
Burn these clothes, throw away this key
Kiss me now honey, set me free
It'll wreck your mind
Destroy your health
What good is whinin'
When your soul needs help
I see the sky turning red
Feel the earth does move me
And I know, and I know in my heart
I said, I said, I said
I need help with these blues
