BLOW TOP BLUES Leonard Feather 1945 Dinah Washington w The Lionel Hampton Septet rec May 25th 1945 New York I've got bad news baby, and you're the first to know, Yes, I've got bad news baby, and you're the first to know, I discovered this mornin' that my top is about to go! I've been rockin' on my feet and talkin' all out of my head, Yes, I've been rockin' on my feet and talkin' all out of my head, Yes, and when I get through talkin', can't remember a thing I said! Used to be a sharpie, always dressed in the latest styles, Now I'm walkin' down Broadway wearin' nothin' but a smile! I see all kinds o' little men, although they're never there! I try to push the "A" trail and put whisky in my hair! I'm a girl you can't excuse, I've got those blow top blues. Last night I was five feet tall, today I'm eight feet ten, And every time I fall down stairs I float right up again! When someone turned the lights on me, it like to drove me blind, I woke up in Belle Vue, but I left my mind behind! I'm a gal who blew a fuse, I've got those blow top blues.
