Dark as the night and blue as the day
I'm lonesome, my darling, since you went away
Sometimes I wonder, what made you strangely
Dark as the night and blue as the day

Blue as the sky, there is blues in my heart
It's dark outside since we've been apart
Oh, tell me, please, tell me, why you betrayed?
Dark as the night, I'm blue as the day

Blue as the sky, there is blues in my heart
It's dark outside since we've been apart
Oh, tell me, please, tell me, why you betrayed?
Dark as the night, I'm blue as the day
