BAD CASE OF THE BLUES, A (Otis)
as recorded by Dinah Washington
I've got a bad case of the blues, mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm,
I've got a heartache I can't lose,
I'm in love with a man
Who's meaner than twenty mules, yeah yeah yeah, yeah!
I gotta bad case of the blues,
I've been mistreated and abused,
He never takes me nowhere, you see,
He just don't care 'bout the blues!
I really don't need a doctor,
'Cause I'm just a poor helpless case;
See the look of unrequited love
I'm wearin' on my pretty face!
I've got a bad case of the blues,
I feel so helpless and confused,
But here I go back for more!
Open the door, please please please please, Mister Blues!
