Helen Humes – Cross Eyed Blues lyrics

Got one superstition, that's the one I really prize (2x)
I don't like nobody, who's got a pair of mean cross eyes

Said a cross-eyed man, hateful as a man could be (2x)
Slept with his eyes open, always lookin' cross at me

Gee but he was ugly, eyed me every way I turned (2x)
I could feel him lookin', Lawdy how his eyes did burn

Cross eyes make me shiver, cause they're so evil, low and mean (2x)
Hateful as the devil, weariest eyes I've ever seen

Folks who's got them cross eyes, things they see in vain
Folks who's got them cross eyes, things they see is always wrong
That's why me and cross eyes never gonna get along

If I'd see a cross-eyed person, I was about to meet (2x)
I'd just cross my finger, then I'd walk across the street
