FEELS LIKE THE BLUES

You say that you're leavin',you say you've had enough,
Packed up all your bags,and you boxed up all your stuff,
You cleaned out the closet of those 68 pairs of shoes,
If I'm so glad you're leavin',
Why does this feel like the blues.

I've longed for this moment,to be single once again,
Just fancy & free,don't have to answer who,what,why or when,
You think I'd be happy,when you gave me the news,
But if I'm not mistaken,
This sure does feel like the blues.

(chorus)
Since you've been gone,
I've been havin' quite the time,
Tell my friends how happy I am,
But I can tell,
They know that I'm lyin'.

Livin' this bachelor life,has got to be the best,
I lay around the house all day,don't even have to get dressed,
Playin'Poker with my buddies,you know I just can't seem to lose,
So could someone please explain,
Why does this feel like the blues.

(repeat chorus)

It's obvious I miss you,can't deny a well known fact,
I just don't know how to grovel,& keep my dignity intact,
So I'm pullin'out the stops Babe,usin'all I got to use,
Cause I got to get you back home,
To cure these ailin'lovesick blues.

Livin'like a free man,just isn't where it's at,
An'even though I'm allergic,you can bring home that long haired cat,
An' when your mama comes to visit,I'll mind my P,s & Q,s,
Cause this happiness ain't worth it,
When you're sufferin'with the blues.
