"(What Did I Do to Be So) Black and Blue" as written by Harry Brooks, Fats Waller and Andy Razaf....
Old empty bed, springs hard as lead
Feel like old Ned, wished I was dead
What did I do to be so black and blue?

Even the mouse ran from my house
They laugh at you and scorn you too
What did I do to be so black and blue?

I'm white inside, but that don't help my case
'Cause I can't hide what is in my face

How would it end? Ain't got a friend
My only sin is in my skin
What did I do to be so black and blue?

How would it end? Ain't got a friend
My only sin is in my skin
What did I do to be so black and blue?
