Blue overall
Overall the rooftops blue birds fly apart
Blue overall
Overall the bones that cage this stupid heart

Got blues drawing crosses on my front door
Blues a'bringing buckets 'round the back
Blues trying to push me from me white fence
And tar me a darker bluey black

For all this time
I really thought you loved me
For all this time
You only rubber gloved me

Blue overall
Overall my anvil gives no further sparks
Blue overall
Overall my fears swim hammer headed sharks

Got blues drinking beer out in the kitchen
Blue dog is barking to be fed
Got blues spilling wine upon me heartrug
They're holding a party in my head

For all this time
I really thought you loved me
For all this time
You merely went and shoved me

I tried to lose myself in labour
The more I push the mirth
I'm giving birth to a baby's turning

Blue overall
Feeling blue overall
All over I'm turning blue
