Woke up this morning, and I heard the news.
Woke up too late this morning: it was already old news.
Stock market took itself a nose dive!
Got them busted-flat blues.

Well, I learned a hard lesson: if you play, you can lose.
No, you can't always win, boy; sometime you gon' lose.
Ain't no sure things out there, baby,
'cept for the blues.

I ain't got much left, now; what's a poor boy to do?
No, I ain't got much left, now; ain't but one thing I can do:
take every last dollar,
invest it all in the blues.
