Mood Indigo
1931
English

You ain't been blue,
No, no, no,
You ain't been blue,
Till you've had that mood indigo,
That feelin' goes
Stealin' down to my shoes,
While I sit and sigh: "Go 'long, blues."
Always get that mood indigo,
Since my baby said goodbye,
In the evenin' when lights are low,
I'm so lonesome I could cry,
'Cause there's nobody who cares about me,
I'm just a sould who's bluer than blue can be,
When I get that mood indigo,
I could lay me down and die.
You ain'd been blue,
No, no, no,
You ain't been blue,
Till you've had that mood indigo,
That feelin' goes
Stealin' down to my shoes,
While I sit and sigh: "Go 'long, blues."
