Sing the blues

Shall I betray a lover's secret?

Shall I tell of tears and pain?

Should I mention days of longing?

Tell of nights alone again?


Shall I speak of never knowing?

Might be best if I forgot,

Shall I tell of petal torment?

Does she love me does she not?


Shall I tell of weepy pillows?

Shall I tell of tearful stairs?

Shall I add forever waiting?

Steamy on and off affairs.


Shall I betray a lover's secret?

Liken hearts to worn down shoes?

Broken dreams like broken guitars,

Bet your life I'll sing the blues.
