Lyrics: 

Singing the Blues

Baby you know I love you
Why won’t you come home with me
I said baby you know I love you
Why don’t you take me home with you
You know if I sang a song about you
You know I’d be singing the blues

I done bought you some flowers
Took you to the moving picture show
I done bought you some flowers
And took you to the moving picture show
Let you drink some of my liquor
Now you got me singing the blues

Baby you know I love you
But you don’t want to be my friend
I keep telling you that I love you
You keep saying you ain’t my friend
Now you won’t even drink my liquor

BRIDGE

Black satin stocking and silks
The way you move makes me smile
Black silk stockings and silks
I should know better than to fall in love
You know if I sang this song about you
You know I’d be singing the blues

You know if I sang this song about you
You know I’d be singing the blues



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
