Cold empty bed... Springs hurt my head
Feels like ole ned... Wished I was dead
What did I do... To be so black and blue

Even the mouse... Ran from my house
They laugh at you... And all that you do
What did I do... To be so black and blue

I'm white... Inside... But, that don't help my case
That's life... Can't hide... What is in my face

How would it end... Ain't got a friend
My only sin... Is in my skin
What did I do... To be so black and blue

[Instrumental]

How would it end... I ain't got a friend
My only sin... Is in my skin
What did I do... To be so black and blue
