Without a word of warning
The blues walked in this morning
And circled aroundnd my lonely room
I didn't know why I had 
That sad and lonely feeling
Until my baby said we're through

Yesterday this time, I sang a love song
But today I'm singin' the blues

Now, I know the explanation
But to me that's no consolation
No, no, it just goes to show you
No matter how your love
Everybody's got to lose
And since I've lost 
I'd rather walk around and worry
I guess I just walked the darkest avenues

Yesterday this time, I sang a love song
But today, my story's a little different, people
I'm singing the blues, yeah, yeah, yeah

Now it strikes me kind of funny
How love can be this way
'Cause we were lovers last night, honey
Oh, but I'm sittin' alone again today
And it strikes me kind of funny, yeah
How faith can be so unfair
'Cause I seem to come out on the losin' end
Of every, every love affair, yeah
It's got to be written somewhere for me
That I should be the one to always lose

But yesterday at this time, I sang a love song
Oh, oh, right now I'm singin' the blues, yeah, yeah
I'm singin' the blues
