When the moon's kinda dreamy, starry eyed and dreamy
And nights are luscious and long
If you're kinda lonely, and all by you're only
Then nothin' but the blues are brewin', the blues are brewin'

When the wind through the window blows across your pillow
And tells you sleepin' is wrong
If love goes a thirsting till you feel like bursting
Then nothing but the blues are brewin', the blues are brewin'

Suppose you want somebody but you ain't got nobody
You only get a gleam in your eye
Till somebody's found you and puts their lovin' arms around you
You got the feelin' you want to die

But when the Lord up above you, sends someone to love you
The blues are something you loose
You're so busy doing the things that you're doing
That love ain't got no time for brewin' the blues

But when the Lord up above you, sends someone to love you
The blues are something you loose
You're so busy doing the things that you're doing
That love ain't got no time for brewin' the blues, the blues
