Mood IndigoPerry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!

You ain't been blue,
No, no, no . . .
You ain't been blue,
'Till you had that mood indigo . . .

That feelin' goes stealin'
Down to my shoes,
While I sit an' sigh,
Go 'long blues . . .

Always get the mood indigo,
Since my baby said goodbye . . .
In the evenin' when the lights are low,
I'm so lonesome, I could die!

'Cause there's nobody,
Who cares about me . . .
I'm just a fool,
Who's bluer than blue can be,
When I get that mood indigo,
I could lay me down an' die!

< instrumental break > 

 
That feelin' goes stealin'
Down to my shoes,
While I sit an' sigh,
Go 'long blues . . .
