THE BLUES ARE BREWIN' Lyrics

Artist: Billie Holiday
Album: Billie Holiday - The Complete Decca Sessions

Eddie DeLange / Louis Alter

When the moon's kinda dreamy
Starry eyed and dreamy
And nights are luscious and long
If you're kinda lonely
Then nothin' but the blues are brewin'
The blues are brewin'

When the wind through the window
Blows across your pillow
And tells you sleepin' is wrong
If love goes a thirsting
Till you feel like bursting
Then nothing but the blues are brewin'
The blues are brewin'

Suppose you want somebody
But you ain't got nobody
You only got a gleam in your eyes
Till somebody's found you
And put their lovin' arms around you
You got the feelin' you want to die

But when the Lord up above you
Sends someone to love you
The blues are something you lose
You're so busy doing
The things that you're doing
That love ain't got no time
For brewin' the blues
