Lyrics
Without a word of warning
The blues walked in this morning
And circled around my lonely room
I didn’t know why I had
That sad and lonely feeling
Until my baby called and said that we’re through
Oh, yesterday this time, I sang a love song
But today I’m singing the blues

It strikes me kind of funny
How love can be this way
We were lovers last night honey
But I’m alone again today
And it strikes me kind of funny
How faith can be unfair
How come I’d over losing in
In every, every love affair
Yes it must be, it must be written for me
That I should be the one, be the one to always lose
But yesterday, yesterday this time, I sang a love song
Oh, oh, but right now I’m singing the blues, oh yeah

Català – Avui Canto El Blues
Sense una paraula d’advertència
La tristesa ha entrat aquest matí
I ha envoltat la meva solitària cambra
No sabia perquè tenia
Aquest sentiment trist i solitari
Fins que el meu xicot ha trucat i m’ha dit que hem acabat
Oh, ahir a aquesta hora, cantava una cançó d’amor
Però avui estic cantant el blues

És una mica estrany
Com l’amor pot ser d’aquesta manera
Vam ser amants ahir, carinyo
Però avui estic sola novament
I em sembla una mica estrany
Com d’injusta pot ser la fe
Com és que tinc les de perdre a
A cada, cada història d’amor
Sí, deu estar, deu estar escrit per a mi
Que he de ser la única, ser la única que perd sempre
Però ahir, ahir a aquesta hora, cantava una cançó d’amor
Oh, oh, però en aquests moments estic cantant el blues, oh si
