Lyrics verse:
I GOT THE BLUES
I FEEL SO LONELY,
I'D GIVE THE WORLD
IF I COULD ONLY
MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND.
YES,
IT SURELY WOULD BE GRAND.
I'M SIMPLY WILD ABOUT MY LADY,
ASK HER
WON'T SHE PLEASE COME HOME
SINCE SHE'S GONE
I STAY WORRIED
ALL THE TIME.

Chorus:
BABY,
WON'T YOU PLEASE COME HOME.
'CAUSE YOUR MAMA'S ALL ALONE.
I HAVE TRIED IN VAIN,
NEVER NO MORE
TO CALL YOUR NAME.
WHEN YOU LEFT
YOU BROKE MY HEART,
BECAUSE
I NEVER THOUGHT WE'D PART.
EV'RY HOUR IN THE DAY
YOU WILL HEAR ME SAY,
BABY,
WON'T YOU PLEASE COME HOME.

Lyrics STINGY JENNY
SAVED UP ALL HER PENNIES,
OFF TO THE BANK SHE WOULD GO.
SHARKS WOULD HOUND HER
AND SURROUND HER,
BUT NONE COULD GET HER DOUGH!
JENNY'S FELLA
WAS A SLICK HIGH YELLOW,
WENT OFF TO JAIL ONE DAY
HE CRIED FOR BAIL,
AND TURNED REAL PALE
WHEN HE HEARD JENNY SAY,

I'VE GOT WHAT IT TAKES,
BUT IT BREAKS MY HEART
TO GIVE IT AWAY!
IT'S IN DEMAND,
PEOPLE WANT IT EVERY DAY!

I BEEN SAVIN' IT UP
FOR A REALLY LONG TIME,
TO GIVE IT AWAY
WOULD BE ALMOST A CRIME!
YOUR EYES MAY ROLL,
YOUR TEETH MAY GRIT,
NONE OF MY MONEY
SHALL YOU GET!

YOU CAN LOOK
IN MY BANK BOOK,
BUT I'LL NEVER
LET YOU FEEL MY PURSE!
TAKE YOUR HANDS AWAY,
DADDY,
'CAUSE I BELIEVE IN SAFETY FIRST!
I'VE GOT MONEY,
BUT IT'S MY PLAN
TO SAVE IT UP
FOR A REAL GOOD MAN!
I'VE GOT WHAT IT TAKES,
BUT IT BREAKS MY HEART
TO GIVE IT AWAY!

Lyrics YEAH, MY BUCKET'S GOT A HOLE IN IT,
YEAH, MY BUCKET'S GOT A HOLE IN IT,
YEAH, MY BUCKET'S GOT A HOLE IN IT,
I CAN'T BUY NO BEER.

WELL, I'M STANDIN' ON THE CORNER
WITH A BUCKET IN MY HAND,
I'M WAITIN' FOR A WOMAN
THAT AIN'T GOT NO MAN.

'CAUSE MY BUCKET'S GOT
A HOLE IN IT,
YEAH, MY BUCKET'S GOT A HOLE IN IT,
YEAH, MY BUCKET'S GOT A HOLE IN IT,
I CAN'T BUY NO BEER.

WELL I WENT UP ON THE MOUNTAIN,
I LOOKED DOWN IN THE SEA,
I SEEN THE CRABS AND THE FISHES
DOIN' THE BE-BOP-BEE.

'CAUSE MY BUCKET'S GOT
A HOLE IN IT,
YEAH, MY BUCKET'S GOT A HOLE IN IT,
YEAH, MY BUCKET'S GOT A HOLE IN IT,
I CAN'T BUY NO BEER.

WELL, THERE AIN'T NO USE
OF ME
WORKIN' SO HARD,
WHEN I GOT A WOMAN
IN THE BOSS MAN'S YARD.

'CAUSE MY BUCKET'S GOT
A HOLE IN IT,
YEAH, MY BUCKET'S GOT A HOLE IN IT,
YEAH, MY BUCKET'S GOT A HOLE IN IT,
I CAN'T BUY NO BEER!

Lyrics verse:
DADDY,
YOU'VE BEEN
SO DOGGONE SWEET
ON ME,
DADDY,
YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE
I SEE.
YOU KNOW I NEED
BUT YOU,
'CAUSE YOU'RE
MY MAN
WHO LOVES ME
LIKE NO ONE
CAN.
SOMETHING ABOUT YOU
I CAN'T RESIST:
WHEN YOU KISS ME,
DADDY,
I STAY KISSED!

Chorus:
OH DADDY,
SQUEEZE ME
AND SQUEEZE ME
AGAIN,
DON'T STOP
'TIL I TELL YOU
WHEN.
NOW DADDY,
SQUEEZE ME
AND KISS ME
SOME MORE,
JUST LIKE
OU DID BEFORE.
OH BOY,
CUPID STANDING
CLOSE BY,
OH DADDY,
DON'T MAKE
YOUR SWEET MAMA

JUST PICK ME UP
ON YOUR KNEE,
AND I JUST GET,
SO YOU KNOW,

AND YOU CAN
TAKE THAT
TO THE BANK!

Lyrics SUGAR BLUES,
EV'RYBODY'S SINGING
THE SUGAR BLUES,
THE WHOLE TOWN
IS RINGING.
MY LOVIN' MAN'S
SWEET

I LOVE MY COFFEE,

BUT THE DOGGONE CREAM
TURNED SOUR ON ME.
I'M SO UNHAPPY,
I FEEL SO BAD
I COULD LAY ME DOWN
AND DIE.
YOU CAN SAY
WHAT YOU CHOOSE
BUT I'M ALL
CONFUSED,
I'VE GOT THE SWEET,
SWEET SUGAR BLUES,
MORE SUGAR,
I'VE GOT THE SWEET,
SWEET SUGAR BLUES.

Lyrics (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.
