We want to leave you happy
Don't want to leave you sad
We want to leave you happy
Don't want to leave you sad
Want to sing some blues
But don't want to sing them bad

Roy wailed for you
He wailed the blues tonight
Roy wailed for you
He wailed the blues tonight
He wailed, he wailed, he wailed 'em just right

He talked about a mean woman
Oh what a woman was she
Talked about a mean woman
What a woman was she
I've got my chance to talk about a man
I'll talk about he

He was good to me
He was good
He was good to me
Whoa, so good
I don't know much about the blues
But I know somewhere

There's a little bit of soul in ella
There's a little bit of soul in me
There's a little bit of soul in ella
There's a little bit of soul in me
Oh somewhere down the line
I've had misery

Every woman gets misery
Every woman is crying
Every woman has misery
Every woman is crying
Crying 'bout a man
And the way he did her wrong

I had one too
I had one too
I had one too
I had one too
He did me wrong, but what did I do
I picked up and took patoot

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
I want to go out swinging
Swinging the blues tonight

Don't want to talk about mack the knife
Don't want to talk about the snuffing
Just want to have fun talking about
Things that make you happy
Snappy happy happy snappy, that's me

Joe williams sang the blues tune
He talked about his woman
Joe williams sang the blues tune
He talked about his woman
Everybody, everybody pays those dues

Have you paid your dues
Have you paid your dues
Have you paid your dues
Have you paid your dues
Everybody, somewhere along the line is paying some dues

Dues, one and two
Dues, doesn't matter nothing
Dues, three and four
Dues, maybe more, that's all right
You're still paying dues

So let's stay happy, happy, happy
Let's stay happy
Go swinging out, swinging out, swinging out
Singing the blues

Bye-bye
Bye-bye
It's been a wonderful night tonight
Yes, it's been nice
One more chorus, just for you

I thank you daddy, for coming out
I thank you people, for coming out
Cause somewhere along the line, everyone will want to shout

I want to shout
Shout about my troubles
I want to shout
Shout about my troubles
Like you I've paid the dues
And I've got double trouble

Come on, let's stay happy
Come on, clap, let's stay happy
Let's sing the happy blues
No more sad dues

I am happy you are happy too
I am happy you are happy too
So let's go out with the blues that's swinging

Like count basie, swing on
Like count basie, swing on
Like count basie, swing on
Like count basie, swing on
Swing on, swing out tonight

Hey now
Hey now
Hey now
Right on now, with that soul

C'mon everybody
C'mon and say right on
I said right on
I said right on
Right on
Right on
Right on
Right on
Right on

Get with it, yeah
Get with it, yeah
Get with it, yeah
Get with it, yeah
Get with it
Get with it
Get with it, c'mon

Let's make you happy
Happy
I've sung these blues, and I'm through
Cause I don't know what I'm singing about
I don't know what I'm singing about
With this happy music
This happy music

So I'd better leave while I'm happy
And say good night to you
Goodnight
Goodnight
Goodnight
Goodnight
Goodnight
