I got a heart full of trouble, a house full of sin.
And things are bad as they ever been.
If trouble were money,
I'd have more money than any man should.

I'm open for business in your neighborhood,
The blues is my business, and business is good.

If I had a dollar for every broken heart,
I'd be drinkin' fine wine and eatin' caviar.
If trouble were money,
I'd have more money than any man should.


I'm open for business in your neighborhood,
The blues is my business, and business is good.

Well business, the business is good.
The blues is my business, and business is good.
The blues is my business, the blues is my business.
I'm open for business in your neighborhood,
The blues is my business, and business is good.

LICKS -----------

It's a world full of trouble and a world full of pain,
I'll take the problem, but I won't take no blame.
If trouble were money,
I'd have more money than any man should.

I'm open for business in your neighborhood,
The blues is my business, and business is good.



The blues is my business, and business is good.
The blues is my business, and business is good.
The blues is my business, the blues is my business.

I'm open for business in your neighborhood,
The blues is my business, and business is good.

The blues is my business, the blues is my business
The blues is my business, the blues is my business
And business is good.
I'm open for business in your neighborhood,
The blues is my business, and business is good.
The blues is my business,
The blues is my business and business is good
