Lyrics
You, you ain’t been blue, no, no, no
Oh, you ain’t, you really ain’t been blue
Till you’ve had that mood indigo
That feeling goes stealing down to my shoes
While I, while I sit and I sigh: “Go long blues”

I’m trying to get comfortable
You ain’t, you really ain’t been blue, no, no, no
Yeah, you ain’t, you have not been blue
Till you’ve had that mood indigo, yeah
That feeling, that feeling, that feeling, oh, that feeling
Ooh, oh, goes around down to my shoes, yeah
While I, while I just sit and sigh: “Go long blues, blues, blues”

Català – Estat D’Ànim Indi
Tu, no has estat trist, no, no, no
Oh, no, realment no has estat trist
Fins que no has tingut l’estat d’ànim indi
Aquest sentiment que va esmunyint-se cap a les meves sabates
Mentre jo, mentre jo sec i xiuxiuejo: “Marxa lluny tristesa”

Estic intentant posar-me còmode
No , realment no has estat trist, no, no, no
Sí, tu no, no has estat trist
Fins que no has tingut l’estat d’ànim indi, sí
Aquest sentiment, aquest sentiment, aquest sentiment, oh, aquest sentiment
Oh, oh, que va baixant cap a les meves sabates, sí
Mentre jo, mentre jo sec i xiuxiuejo: “Marxa lluny tristesa, tristesa, tristesa”
