Perry Como - Birth Of The Blues Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Oh . . . they say some people long ago,
  • Were searchin for a diffrent tune,
  • One that they could croon,
  • As only they can . . .
  • They only had the rhythm . . . so,
  • They started swayin to and fro . . .
  • They didnt know just what to use,
  • That is how the blues,
  • Really began . . .
  • They heard the breeze in the trees,
  • Singin weird melodies,
  • And they made that,
  • The start of the blues!
  • And from a jail came the wail,
  • Of a down-hearted frail,
  • And they played that,
  • As part of the blues!
  • From a whippoorwill out on the hill,
  • They took a new note ( whippoorwill, whippoorwill, whippoorwill . . . )
  • Pushed it through a horn till it was worn,
  • Into a blue note . . . ( whippoorwill, whippoorwill, whippoorwill . . . )
  • An then they nursed it, and rehearsed it,
  • And gave out the news,
  • That the southland . . .
  • Gave birth to the blues!
  • ( shout out the wonderful news! )
  • Oh, the breeze from the trees,
  • A wail from the jail,
  • A buzz from the cousin of a nightingale,
  • And southland ( hello, hello! )
  • Gave birth to the blues!
