Lyrics EV'RY DAY,
EV'RY DAY I HAVE THE BLUES,
EV'RY DAY,
EV'RY DAY I HAVE THE BLUES.
WELL,
YOU SEE ME WORRY,
BABY,
BECAUSE IT'S YOU
I HATE TO LOSE.

NOBODY LOVES ME,
NOBODY SEEMS TO CARE,
NOBODY LOVES ME,
NOBODY SEEMS TO CARE.
SPEAKING OF BAD LUCK
AND TROUBLE,
WELL, YOU KNOW
I'VE HAD MY SHARE.

I'M GONNA PACK
MY SUITCASE,
MOVING ON
DOWN THE LINE,
OH,
I'M GONNA PACK
MY SUITCASE,
MOVE ON
DOWN THE LINE.
WELL,
THERE AIN'T NOBODY
WORRYING
AND THERE AIN'T
NOBODY CRYING.

SEEMS TO ME
EV'RY DAY,
EV'RY DAY,
EV'RY DAY I HAVE THE BLUES.
EV'RY DAY,
EV'RY DAY,
EV'RY DAY,
EV'RY DAY I HAVE THE BLUES.
YOU SEE ME WORRY,
BABY,
'CAUSE IT'S YOU
I HATE TO LOSE.

NOBODY LOVES ME,
NOBODY SEEMS TO CARE,
NOBODY LOVES ME,
NOBODY SEEMS TO CARE,
SPEAKIN' OF BAD LUCK
AND TROUBLE,
WELL, YOU KNOW
I'VE HAD MY SHARE.

EV'RY DAY,
EV'RY DAY I HAVE THE BLUES,
EV'RY DAY,
EV'RY DAY I HAVE THE BLUES.
WELL,
YOU SEE ME WORRY,
BABY,
BECAUSE IT'S YOU
I HATE TO LOSE.

Lyrics LOVE COMES ALONG
LIKE A POPULAR SONG
ANY TIME OR ANYWHERE AT ALL.
RAIN OR SUNSHINE,
SPRING OR FALL,
SAY, YOU'LL NEVER KNOW
WHEN IT MAY SAY HELLO
IN A VERY UNEXPECTED PLACE.
FOR EXAMPLE, TAKE MY CASE:

IT WAS A LUCKY APRIL SHOWER,
IT WAS THE MOST CONVENIENT DOOR,
I FOUND A MILLION DOLLAR BABY
IN A FIVE AND TEN CENT STORE.
THE RAIN CONTINUED FOR AN HOUR,
I HUNG AROUND FOR THREE OR FOUR,
AROUND A MILLION DOLLAR BABY
IN A FIVE AND TEN CENT STORE.

SHE WAS SELLING CHINA,
AND WHEN SHE MADE THOSE EYES,
I KEPT BUYING CHINA
UNTIL THE CROWD GOT WISE.

INCIDENTALLY,
IF YOU SHOULD RUN INTO A SHOWER,
JUST STEP INSIDE MY COTTAGE DOOR,
AND MEET THE MILLION-DOLLAR BABY
FROM THE FIVE AND TEN CENT STORE.

Lyrics verse 1:
WHETHER YOU'RE TWENTY
AND STARTING IN LIFE
WHETHER TO THIRTY
YOU'VE GROWN.
WHETHER TO FORTY
A HUSBAND OR WIFE,
WHETHER YOU'RE FIFTY,
A DARBY OR JOAN,
THERE'S ONE THING CERTAIN
THAT YOU'LL HAVE TO OWN:

Chorus:
LOVE IS THE SWEETEST THING,
WHAT ELSE ON EARTH
COULD EVER BRING
SUCH HAPPINESS
TO EVERYTHING
AS LOVE'S OLD STORY.
LOVE IS THE STRANGEST THING,
NO SONG OF BIRDS
UPON THE WING
SHALL IN OUR HEARTS
MORE SWEETLY SING
THAN LOVE'S OLD STORY.

WHATEVER HEART MAY DESIRE,
WHATEVER FATE MAY SEND,
THIS IS THE TALE
THAT NEVER WILL TIRE,
THIS IS THE SONG
WITHOUT END.

LOVE IS THE GREATEST THING,
THE OLDEST
YET THE LATEST THING,
I ONLY HOPE
THAT FATE CAN BRING
LOVE'S STORY TO YOU.

verse 2:
WHETHER YOU'VE GONE
AFTER WORLDLY SUCCESS,
MAKING YOUR PLACE
IN THE SUN
WHETHER YOUR INCOME'S
A MILLION OR LESS,
JUST WHEN YOU THINK
LL THE PRIZES YOU'VE WON,
YOU'LL WAKE TO LEARN
AFTER ALL'S SAID AND DONE:

Chorus:
LOVE IS THE SWEETEST THING,
WHAT ELSE ON EARTH
COULD EVER BRING
SUCH HAPPINESS
TO EVERYTHING
AS LOVE'S OLD STORY.
LOVE IS THE STRANGEST THING,
NO SONG OF BIRDS
UPON THE WING
SHALL IN OUR HEARTS
MORE SWEETLY SING
THAN LOVE'S OLD STORY.

WHATEVER HEART MAY DESIRE,
WHATEVER FATE MAY SEND,
THIS IS THE TALE
THAT NEVER WILL TIRE,
THIS IS THE SONG
WITHOUT END.

LOVE IS THE GREATEST THING,
THE OLDEST
YET THE LATEST THING,
I ONLY HOPE
THAT FATE CAN BRING
LOVE'S STORY TO YOU.

Lyrics YOU AND I...
THEY USED TO POINT AT US
AND SAY:
A PERFECT PAIR!
NOW THEY SEE
THERE'S NO ONE
NEXT TO ME,
THEY STOP AND STARE.

I'LL TRY TO EXPLAIN
TO FRIENDS,
DEAR,
THE REASON WE TWO
ARE APART,
I KNOW
WHAT TO TELL OUR FRIENDS,
DEAR,
BUT WHAT WILL I TELL MY HEART?
IT'S EASY
TO SAY TO STRANGERS,
THAT WE PLAYED A GAME
FROM THE START,
IT'S EASY TO LIE
TO STRANGERS,
BUT WHAT WILL I TELL MY HEART?

WHEN I SMILE TO HIDE
ALL THE TEARS INSIDE,
WHAT AN ACHE
IT WILL BRING.
THEN I'LL WANDER HOME
TO A TELEPHONE
THAT FORGOT HOW TO RING.

I COULD SAY
YOU'LL SOON BE BACK,
DEAR,
TO FOOL THE WHOLE TOWN
MAY BE SMART,
I'LL TELL THEM
YOU'LL SOON BE BACK,
DEAR,
BUT WHAT WILL I TELL MY HEART?

WHEN THEY STOP
AND ASK ME
WHAT'S BECOME OF YOU...
I TURN AWAY.
CAN'T CONCEAL
THE HEARTACHE
THAT I FEEL,
WHAT CAN I SAY?

I'LL TRY TO EXPLAIN
TO FRIENDS,
DEAR,
THE REASON WE TWO
ARE APART,
I KNOW
WHAT TO TELL OUR FRIENDS,
DEAR,
BUT WHAT WILL I TELL MY HEART?
IT'S EASY
TO SAY TO STRANGERS,
THAT WE PLAYED A GAME
FROM THE START,
IT'S EASY TO LIE
TO STRANGERS,
BUT WHAT WILL I TELL MY HEART?

WHEN I SMILE TO HIDE
ALL THE TEARS INSIDE,
WHAT AN ACHE
IT WILL BRING.
THEN I'LL WANDER HOME
TO A TELEPHONE
THAT FORGOT HOW TO RING.

I COULD SAY
YOU'LL SOON BE BACK,
DEAR,
TO FOOL THE WHOLE TOWN
MAY BE SMART,
I'LL TELL THEM
YOU'LL SOON BE BACK,
DEAR,
BUT WHAT WILL I TELL MY HEART?
