Lady sings the blues

Lady sings the blues

on the corner of the street

and all the people passing by

can’t help moving to the beat

cause Lady’s got a voice

that could make the angels sigh

and when she sings the blues

you can almost hear them cry


Lady sings the blues

you can hear it in the city

but no one ever hears the words

because her voice is just too pretty

Lady sings the blues

all day and all night

the world has grown so dark

and she wants to save the light


cause Lady’s got a voice

that could make the angels sigh

and when she sings the blues

you can almost hear them cry


so Lady sings the blues

to the ghosts and their lost souls

to help them warm their hearts

cause the world has grown so cold

Lady sings the blues

to chase the dark away

she sings with all her heart

so they’ll hold on another day


cause Lady’s got a voice

that could make the angels sigh

and when she sings the blues

you can almost hear them cry


Lady sings the blues

so the world will hear her song

and all the people passing by

will one day stop to sing along

cause Lady’s got a voice

that could make the angels sigh

and when she sings the blues

you can almost hear them cry
