Lady Sings the Blues (1956)

Lady sings the blues,
She’s got them bad,
She feels so sad,
Wants the world to know,
Just what the blues is all about.
 
Lady sings the blues,
She tells her side,
nothing to hide,
Now the world will now,
Just what the blues is all about,
The blues ain’t nothing but a pain in your heart,
When you get a bad start,
When you and your man have to part,
I ain’t gonna just sit around and cry,
I know I won’t die,
Cause I love him.
Lady sings the blues,
she’s got ’em bad,
She feels so sad,
The world will know,
She’s never gonna sing them no more.
No more.

― Billie Holiday
