"Black and Blue" as written by and Harry/razaf Brooks....
He walked into the sunset
He walked out of the dawn
He rode that Palomino
It was a one man storm

Oh is this the party
Ah I just got started

He disappeared fell down the cracks
He walked out never came back

Oh black and blue
What are we gonna do with you
Oh black and blue
I guess baby that we're through
Falling down the stairs
Falling out of cars
Lying in the gutter
Just looking at the stars
Oh black and blue
Who's been beating up on you?

Oh is this the party
Ahh I just got started

It was the biggest circus in town
They came from far and wide
Consuela and her sisters now
Couldn't hold the tide

She was a girl with a diamond smile
Lost herself on the golden mile

Oh black and blue
What are we gonna do with you
Oh black and blue
I guess baby that we're through
Falling down the stairs
Falling out of cars
Lying in the gutter
Just looking at the stars

Oh black and blue
What are we gonna do with you
Oh black and blue
I guess baby that we're through
Oh black and blue
Who's been beating up on you
Oh black and blue
We're stuck together
With just a little glue now

He was a man sad and over
Caught a bus back to California
Oh black and blue
Look what loves done to you
Who's been beating up on you
Out of this cuckoos nest
I guess you flew
Where are you tonight
Oh black and blue
Who's been beating up on you
Turn out the light
My baby's in flight
