David Olney – Love's Been Linked To The Blues lyrics

It was in the morning papers, the evening papers too
And I saw it on tv, so I know it must be true
This is no idle rumor, they've got the cold hard facts
They've even checked it out on little mice and rats

Just in case you haven't heard, I'll give you the bad news
Love's been linked to the blues

You start out feeling happy but then love brings you down
You're acting like a hero; you end up like a clown
In study after study, it's the heart that gets broke
They're working 'round the clock searching for the antidote

Well, it's true that it's sad, but it's sadder that it's true
Love's been linked to the blues

So you've got to be real careful and always on your guard
Falling in love, you know, it's harmful to your heart
It's worse than they suspected, it's as bad as it gets
The surgeon general says, "You're better off with cigarettes"

If you must have your bad habits
Why don't you stick to booze
'Cause love's been linked to the blues?

Well, it's true that its sad, but it's sadder that it's true
Love's been linked to the blues
