Sugar Blues    (1919)

Have you heard these blues that I'm going sing to you
When you hear them they will thrill you through and through
They're the sweetest blues you ever heard
Now listen and don't say a word

Sugar blues
Everybody's singing the sugar blues
The whole town's ringing
My loving man's sweet as he can be
But the doggone fool turned sour on me
I'm so unhappy, I feel so bad
I could lay me down and die
You can say what you choose, but I'm all confused
I've got the sweet, sweet sugar blues
More sugar
I've got the sweet, sweet sugar blues

I just love sweet food, puts me in a nice sweet mood
When I'm like that, you will never find me rude
I'm as sweet as can be, I was told
But now he says that I'm too old

Sugar blues
Everybody's singing the sugar blues
The whole town's ringing
I love my coffee, I love my tea
But the doggone cream turned sour on me
I'm so unhappy, I feel so bad
I could lay me down and die
You can say what you choose, but I'm all confused
I've got the sweet, sweet sugar blues
More sugar
I've got the sweet, sweet sugar blues
