Without a word of warning
The blues walked in this morning
And circled round my lonely room
I didn't know why I had 
That sad and lonely feeling
Until my baby called and said we're through, ooo
Woah yesterday, this time I sang a love song
But today I'm singin' the blues

Mmm, it strikes me kind of funny
How love can be this way
We were lovers last night, honey
But I'm alone again today
It strikes me kind of funny
How fate can be unfair
I come out on the losin' end
In every, every love affair
Yes it must be, must be written for me
That I should be the one, be the one to always lose
For yesterday, yesterday, this time I sang a love song
Oh, oh but right now I sing the blues, oh yeah
