             Mess O' Blues    Doc Pomus & Mort Shuman  

                                           

                 I just got your letter baby

 

                 Itís too bad you canít come home    

               

                 And I swear Iím goiní crazy   

                           

                 Sittiní here all alone         

                                

                 Since youíve gone Iíve got     

                         

                 A mess oí the blues 

                                        

                  I ainít slept a wink since Sunday                    

 

                  I canít eat a thing all day           

      

                  Everyday, itís just Blue Monday       

               

                  Since you went away                 

                      

                  Since youíve gone Iíve got       

                        

                  A mess oí the blues 

 

                  Oops there goes a teardrop      

                       

                   Runniní down my face        

                             

                   If you cry when youíre in love   

                        

                   Man it ainít no disgrace

                                     

                   I got to get myself together      

                        

                   Before I lose my mind                 

                    

                   Iím gonna catch that next train rolliní     

          

                   And leave my blues behind          

                   

                   Since youíve gone Iíve got    

                           

                   A mess oí the blues . . .

               And when I get to feel like zero         

               

               Cause the world has gone and put me down   

 

               I look up and there she is my hero           

        

               Sheís all it takes to turn my heart around          

       

               So when I get to feel like dyiní

 

               Cause my day has got me tied and low

 

               Thereís no way theyíre gonna get my heart and soul

 

               Cause sheís standiní right beside me I know 

   

               My womanís my Luxury . . . .

               Cryiní out lonely in the middle oí the night

        Canít Catch Up With Myself         L. Ray 

 

                    Just canít catch up with myself

                    Feel like Iím somebody else

                    Thereís a reason

                    Thereís a reason

                    All of the things that I do

                    nly remind me of you

                    Itís your season

                    Thereís a reason

                    You came into my life

                    Now I sit and wonder why Iím crying . . .

                    As time just rolls on by

                    There will surely come a place

                    Where I can finally find peace

                    Just canít catch up with myself . . .

                       Not To Worry       L. Ray 

 

                     Once I worried

                     With thought and pain

                     Once I hurried

                     I move in vain

                     Sea of problems

                     Helping hand

                     Reach out to me

                     Pull me towards land

                     And together we see

                     All the things life can bring

                     And Iím thinkiní

                      If itís wrong or itís right

                      I donít know itís my life

                      And Iím thinkiní . . .

                      Just one more mention

                      Before I go

                      Take life easy

                       Let it flow  

                       Enjoy your coffee

                       Enjoy the sky

                       Try not to worry

                       Try not to try . . .

                Could Be Love        L. Ray 

 

                        Well I canít find my shoes

                        And I canít fry my meat  

                        Itís not a case oí blues

                        I been down that street

                        I listen to what you say

                        But I donít recall a word

                        Somethinís come over me

                         Itís the craziest thing I heard

                         Could be love . . . 

                         I went down to the store

                         To buy a loaf oí bread

                         It took me an hour or more

                         I got dizzy in my head 

                         I couldnít find my car

                         The sun was so bright and hot

                         I almost got myself rundown

                         In the parking lot

                         Could be love . . .

                         Does the story fit

                         Does it sound like you

                         Did it ring a bell

                         And did that bell ring true

                         And do you find someone

                         Is always on your mind

                         And is your cue for fun

                         Just beiní by their side 

                         Could be love . . .

                           Love you

                           See you soon

                           Every time

                           Thatís the time

                           I come apart inside                                                                                        

                           And I watch

                           As you walk away

                           Count my heartaches

                           Here comes one again

                           Oh I never want to break your heart

                           Thatís not my way

                            I know itís so hard
