Twentieth century blues are getting me down
 Blues, escape those dreary twentieth century blues
 Why, if there's a god in the sky, why shouldn't he grin
 High above this dreary twentieth century din
 
 In this strange illusion, chaos and confusion
 People seem to lose their way
 What is there to strive for, love or keep alive for
 Say, Hey hey, call it a day
 
 Blues, nothing to win or to lose, it's getting me down
 Blues, escape those weary twentieth century blues
 
 Why is it that civilized humanity can make this world so wrong
 In this hurly-burly of insanity, our dreams cannot last long
 We've reached a deadline, a press headline, every sorrow
 Blues value is news value tomorrow
