  This cold grey morning
I find myself wondering
Why do they call it the blues?

Beautiful, beautiful blue
Daytime sky with white cotton clouds
Turquoise sea teaming with life
Cobalt night with full moon and stars

Sorrowful blue music
Wailing songs of pain
Yet full of life
Expressing grief and loss
Beautiful, beautiful feelings

Blue becomes gray
And the music stops
When all feeling is gone
