The tables are empty - the dance floor deserted
You play the same love song - it's the tenth time you've heard it
That's the beginning - just one of the clues
You've had your first lesson - in learning the blues

The cigarettes you light - one after the other
Won't help you forget him – when you're losing your lover
You're only burning - a torch you can't lose
But you're on the right track - for learning the blues

When you're out in the crowd , the blues will taunt you - constantly
When you're out in a crowd, the blues will haunt your memory

The night when you don't sleep - the whole night you're crying
But you cannot forget him - soon you even stop trying
You'll walk the floor - and wear out your shoes
When you feel your heart break - you're learning the blues
