I get the blues in the morning.
So bad, I scare myself
My hair is turning gray so fast, I'm worried about my health,
And I shiver all over,
I shiver all over,
I shiver all over, 'cause I ain't got you!
I'm burning with a fever.
My stomach's twisted up in knots.
My blood's pressure is up so high
I know it's gonna stop my heart.
I've got spots all over my body,
I wear shades 'cause my eyes are red
I've got a headache that just won't go away.
It's a wonder that I'm not dead.
My doctor looked at my condition,
He said oh, Bob you look a mess
There ain't a thing I can do about you
But, you sure can use a lot of rest.
I can't even sleep at night, 'cause I ain't got you!
