Don’t Let Them Listen To The Blues

These blues from the blue
That they keep on listening
Are not good
Papa don’t let them listen to the blues
If they stay at home they will listen to the blues and the blues will make them blue with hopelessness
Out of work and with nothing to do
They listen to the blues
Without money
They listen to the blues
Without love
They listen to the blues
Papa don’t let them listen to these blues
Blues without clues
Blues with dark hues
Blues with dues
If not careful
They will sing the blues
And croon about their pain
And wail about their waste
And mourn about their loneliness
Papa keep these blues away from them…
