When I want to scream and yell
When I’m hot and mad as hell
When I want to scream and shout
When I want to take you out

The blues keeps you alive
I said, the blues keeps you alive
I said, the blues keeps you
Keeps you alive
I said, the blues keeps you alive

Out the door or the window
A glass or you I’m gonna throw
Somethin’ else has got to break
Than my poor heart from this ol’ ache

Yeah, I said, the blues keeps you alive
Yeah, I said, the blues keeps you alive
Oh, I said, the blues keeps you
Oh, yeah, the blues keeps you
The blues keeps you, keeps you alive

Open my mouth, but not to eat
I part my lips, but not to drink
Pop a pill, I do refuse
So instead of murder, I sing the blues

Yeah, I said, the blues keeps you alive
Yeah, I said, the blues keeps you alive
Oh, I said, the blues keeps you
Yeah, the blues keeps you
I said, the blues keeps you alive
