lyrics

I WAS CRUISING DOWN THE STREET FEELING OUT OF LUCK
MY POCKETS WERE SO FULL OF DREAMS, MY HEAD WAS STUCK IN THE DARK
WHAT WAS I GONNA DO, WALK AROUND AND SING THE BLUES?

I SING ONE FOR THE MAN DRIVING YELLOW CAB
I SING ONE FOR THE WOMAN WITH THE BRIGHT RED SOCK
I SING ONE FOR THE LADY DANCING IN THE RAIN
I SING ONE FOR THE PEOPLE RIDING ON THE TRAIN
I SING ONE FOR MY DOG
I SING ONE FOR MY CAT
I SING ONE FOR MY MAMA, PAPA AND MY FRIENDS

OOH BABY TELL ME HOW DO YOU FEEL?
I WANNA MAKE IT UP TO YOU BY SINGING THE BLUES
CAUSE IT FEELS SO GOOD
I MAY BE POOR, I MAY BE RICH
I MAY BE YOUNG AND ONLY WISH I HAD A CADILLAC AND TONS OF HITS

INSTR. SOLO

WHAT AM I GONNA DO, WALK AROUND AND SING THE BLUES?

I SING ONE FOR THE MAN DRIVING YELLOW CAB
I SING ONE FOR THE WOMAN WITH THE BRIGHT RED SOCK
I SING ONE FOR THE LADY DANCING IN THE RAIN
I SING ONE FOR THE PEOPLE RIDING ON THE TRAIN
I SING ONE FOR MY DOG
I SING ONE FOR MY CAT
I SING ONE FOR MY MAMA, PAPA AND MY FRIENDS

INSTR. SOLO

I MAY BE POOR, I MAY BE RICH
I MAY BE YOUNG AND ONLY WISH I HAD A CADILLAC AND TONS OF HITS

BRIDGE

I DON’T WANNA WAKE UP FROM MY DREAM AND THINK THAT
EVERYTHING IS GONNA BE ALRIGHT
I DON’T WANNA SIT AROUND AND WASTE MY TIME ON DOING THINGS
THAT I DON’T LIKE
ALL I WANNA DO IS HAVE SOME FUN AND SING THE BLUES

(SPOKEN WORD)

NICE TO MEET YOU DARLING, HOW DO YOU DO?
DO YOU KNOW MY NAME? I AM MRS. BLUES

(SINGING)

I SING THE BLUES
I MAY BE POOR, I MAY BE RICH
I MAY BE YOUNG AND ONLY WISH I HAD A CADILLAC AND TONS OF HITS

I SING ONE FOR THE MAN DRIVING YELLOW CAB
I SING ONE FOR THE WOMAN WITH THE BRIGHT RED SOCK
I SING ONE FOR THE LADY DANCING IN THE RAIN
I SING ONE FOR THE PEOPLE RIDING ON THE TRAIN
I SING ONE FOR MY DOG
I SING ONE FOR MY CAT
I SING ONE FOR MY MAMA, PAPA AND MY FRIENDS

(SPOKEN WORD)

I SING ONE FOR THE MAN DRIVING YELLOW CAB
I SING ONE FOR THE WOMAN WITH THE BRIGHT RED SOCK
I SING ONE FOR THE LADY DANCING IN THE RAIN
I SING ONE FOR THE PEOPLE RIDING ON THE TRAIN
I SING ONE FOR MY DOG
I SING ONE FOR MY CAT
I SING ONE FOR MY MAMA, PAPA AND MY FRIENDS

INSTR. SOLO

WHAT AM I GONNA DO, WALK AROUND AND SING THE BLUES?
