Been downhearted, baby, ever since the day we met
I been downhearted, baby, ever since the day we met
Our love is nothing but the blues
Baby, how blue can you get

My love is like a fire but your love is like a cigarette
My love is like a fire but baby, yours is like a cigarette
I watched you step down on it, baby, and crush it
Tell me, how how how blue can you get

You're evil when I'm with you and you're jealous when we're apart
Yes, you're evil when I'm with you baby, lord have mercy, you're jealous when we're apart
How blue can you get ? right here in my heart

I gave you a brand new Ford but you said, "I want a Cadillac"
I bought you a ten-dollar dinner, you said, "Thanks for the snack"
I let you live in my penthouse, you said it was just a shack
I gave you seven children and now you wanna give 'em back

I been downhearted, baby, ever since the day we met
Our love is nothing but the blues
Baby, how blue can you get
