Lyrics
This is a story for blues singers baby
This is a story for a ship's captain, too
You never know just what's around the corner
What pain or pleasure's gonna come at you

Oooohaaaah
oooohaaaah

The tall girl's eyes do all the talking
In a sad and beautiful world
Yeah the tall girl's eyes do all the talking
Its all to do with the love she wants in this world

Oooohaaaah
Oooohaaaah

She got long blond hair and blue eyes shining
And his fingers make her come in her sleep
But she says to herself you need nobody darling
Ooooh what about love
Oooohaaaah

Don't matter what you are
Don't matter just how cool you think you
When the girl walks up to the bar
You just got to give it a spin
And she sits there immaculate at a table
And its just close enough for you
As she stares at a streetlamp from a table
She'll never notice
But you don't accept this situation
You want to get up and tell her something good

Somedays you make me feel so happy
Some days I feel blue
Somedays I so , so neutral
Somedays i fall in love with you

This is a story for blues singers baby
This is a story for a ship's captain, too
You never know just what's around the corner
What pain or pleasure's gonna come at you

Oooohaaaah
Oooohaaaah
