"How Blue Can You Get?" as written by and Riley B. King....
Baby, I've been downhearted
Ever since the day we met
Baby, I've been downhearted
Ever since the day we met
Our love is nothing but the blues
Baby, how blue can you get?

My love burns like a fire
Your love burn like a cigarette
Yes, my love burns like a fire
Your love burn like a cigarette
Yes, I've seen you put it down and crush it
Baby, how blue can you get?

Oh, you're evil when I'm with you, baby
And you are jealous when we're apart
Yes you're evil when I'm with you, baby
And you are jealous when we're apart
How blue can you get, baby?
The answer's right here in my heart

I gave you a brand-new Ford
You said "I want a Cadillac"
I bought you a ten dollar dinner
You said "thanks for the snack"
I let you live in my penthouse
You said it was just a shack
I gave you seven children
And now you want to give them back
I've been downhearted, baby
Ever since the day we met
Our love is nothing but the blues
Tell me, how blue can you get?
