Tell Me Something Good ('fore I Start Singing the Blues)
Lyrics
Verse:
Tell me something good baby, 'fore I start singing the Blues.
Tell me something good baby, 'fore I start singing the Blues.
Seems ain't nothing going right for me. I sure could use some happy news.

Verse:
Don't let another teardrop fall from me, and stain the color of my shoes.
Don't let another teardrop fall from me, and stain the color of my (suede leather) shoes.
Just tell me something good baby, 'fore I start singing the Blues.

Verse:
Seems all you do is talk talk talk talk, every time you walk in the room.
Seems you always talkin' talkin' talkin', every time you walk in the room.
(Why don't you) talk 'bout something good baby, 'fore I start singing the Blues.

Verse:
Tell me something good baby, 'fore I start singing the Blues.
Tell me something good pretty baby, 'fore I start singing the Blues.
You know I ain't seen the light of day in so very long and, I sure do need some happy news.
