Lyrics I FOUND A NEW BABY,
I FOUND A NEW GIRL,
MY FASHION PLATE BABY
HAS GOT ME WHIRLED.
HER NEW KIND OF LOVIN'
DONE MADE ME HER SLAVE,
HER SWEET TURTLE DOVIN',
IT'S ALL THAT I CRAVE.

SWEETEST MISS,
WITH A KISS,
FULL OF BLISS,
CAN'T RESIST HER SOMEHOW.
TELLS ME LIES,
BUT SHE'S WISE,
NAUGHTY EYES,
MESMERIZE,
I VOW AND HOW.

I DON'T MEAN MAYBE,
I JUST HAD A FALL,
I FOUND A NEW BABY,
BRAND NEW BABY,
THAT'S ALL.

Lyrics BLUE -
FROM MY HEAD
TO MY SHOES.
I'M BLUE TODAY,
I'VE GOT A MEAN,
EVIL FEELING,
AND I'M FULL OF GIN.
ON MY WAY
TO THE WEST END,
AND THAT'S WHERE TROUBLES
WILL BEGIN.
MY MAN,
MY DAMN
LOW-DOWN
MEAN HOUND,
IN TOWN
WITH MY BEST FRIEND
RUNNIN' AROUND.
OH, THE UNDERTAKER MAN,
GONNA' KNOCK
UPON HIS DOOR.
WOE IN THE WEST END,
WOE IN THE WEST END,
GONNA SEE SOME SHOOTIN'
LIKE THEY NEVER SEEN BEFORE.
I MEAN MY MAN
AND BEST FRIEND
WILL NEVER CHEAT
IN WEST END
ANY MORE.
BLUE -
FROM MY HEAD
TO MY SHOES,
SO BLUE TODAY,
I'VE STILL GOT
THAT MEAN,
LOW-DOWN FEELING
I'M GONNA HEAR BAD NEWS.
I'M ON MY WAY
TO THE WEST END,
TO THOSE OLD, OLD,
UGLY WEST END BLUES,
THOSE WEST END BLUES.
