Now there are blues that you get from happiness
There are blues that you get from pain
Blues when you are lonely for your one and only
Blues that are hard to explain.

And there are blues that you get from waitin’
Oh, but the meanest, the meanest blues that be
They’re the kind that I got on my mind
blues that are the very meanest kind
Blues my naughty sweetie gives to me
Oh, yeah.

Oh, they’re the blues you get from women
when you see ‘em goin’ swimmin’
and you haven’t got a bathin’ suit yourself
They’re the blues that start to flicker
when you’ve had a lot of liquor
and someone goes and takes it off the shelf
They’re the blues you get from waitin’ on the dock
and you’re wonderin’ if your boat’s gonna rock
Blues you keep a gettin’ in a taxicab a pettin’
every time you hear the meter jump clock
They’re the blues you get from cryin’
when your uncle Bill is dyin’
and he afterwards forgets you in his will
They’re the blues you get from kisses when you’re walkin’
with the missus and another baby shouts, “Hey, Bill!”
Blues that kinda make you hop and really shake and shiver
kinda make you want to end it all in the river
Blues my naughty sweetie gives to me.
Oh, play that thing!

Now they’re the blues you get from women
when you see ‘em goin’ swimmin’
and you haven’t got a bathin’ suit your own self
They’re the blues that start to flicker
when you’ve had a lot of liquor
and someone goes and takes it off the shelf
They’re the blues you get from waitin’ on the dock
and you’re wonderin’ if the boat’s gonna rock
Blues you keep a gettin’ in a taxicab a pettin’
every time you hear the meter jump clock
They’re the blues you get from cryin’
when your uncle Bill is dyin’
and he afterwards forgets you in his will.
They’re the blues you get from kisses
when you’re walkin’ with the missus
and another baby shouts, “Kill it, Patrick!!”
Blues that kinda make you hop and really shake and shiver
kinda make you want to end it all in the river.
Blues my naughty sweetie gives to me – let me hear it again –
Oh, blues my naughty sweetie gives to me – just one more time!
Blues my naughty sweetie gives to me.
Yeah!”.
