I've been downhearted, baby
Ever since the day we met
I've been downhearted, baby
Ever since the day we met

Our love is nothing but the blues
Baby, how blue can you get?

My love is like a fire
Your love is like a cigarette
My love is like a fire
But baby, yours is like a cigarette
I watched you step down on it, baby
And crush it!

Tell me how, tell me how
How blue can you get?

You're evil when I'm with you
And you are jealous when we're apart
You're evil
You're so evil when I'm with you, baby
And you are jealous when we're apart

How blue can you get baby?
The answer is right here in my heart

I gave you a brand new Ford
And you said: "I want a Cadillac!"
I bought you a ten dollar dinner
And 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 wanna to give 'em back

Yes, I've been downhearted, baby
Ever since the day we met
Our love is nothing but the blues, baby

Baby, how blue can you get?
