Aretha Franklin – Why I Sing The Blues lyrics
Without a word of warnin' blues
Walked in this mornin'
And circled 'round my lonely room

I didn't know why I had that sad
And lonely feelin' until my baby called
And said we were through

For yesterday this time
I sang a love song
But today I'm singing the blues

Strikes me kinda funny how love can be this way
We were lovin' 'til last night honey, yeah
I'm alone again today

And it strikes me kinda funny
How fate can be unfair
That I come right on the losin' end
In every, every love affair

Yes, it must be, it must be meant for me
That I should be the one
Be the one to always lose

For yesterday
Yesterday this time I'd sing a love song, whoah
Yeah, but right now I'm singin' the blues
Whoah yeah, today I sing the blues
