I got a feeling called the blues, oh Lord
Since my baby said goodbye
Oh Lord, I don't know what I'd do
All I knew is sit and sigh

The last long day, he said goodbye
Oh Lord, I thought I would cry
He'll do me, he'll do you
He got the kind of loving, Lord
I love to hear him when he call me
Sweet ma ma, mama

Such a beautiful dream
I hate to think it's all over
I lost my heart it seems

I've grown so used to, to you somehow
Woah, I'm nobody's, well, sugar mama now
And I'm lonesome
Oh, I got those lovesick blues

Well, I'm in love, I'm in love with a beautiful guy
That's what's the matter with me
Well, I'm in love, I'm in love with a beautiful guy
But he don't care about me

Lord, I tried and I tried to keep him satisfied
Oh, he just wouldn't stay
So now that he's leaving
This is all I can say, hey, yeah

I got the feeling called the blues

I got the feeling called the blues, oh Lord
Hate to think it's all over, over
I lost my heart it seems

I've grown so used to you somehow
Woah, I'm nobody's sugar mama now
And I'm lonesome, Lord
I got those lovesick blues
I got those lovesick blues

Oh, I got a feelin' called the blues, blues
Got a feelin' down in my shoes
I got those lovesick blues
Yeah, a feelin' in my shoes

Lovesick blues
From my heart to my shoes
I got those lovesick blues
I, I, I, I, I, I got the lovesick blues
Feelin' in my shoes
