Wang Wang Blues    (1921)

I've got the bluest blues (He's got the bluest blues)
I'm just as blue as can be (He's got the blues)
Just got the awful news (He's got some awful news)
My sweetie sweet has left me (She left him flat)
I love her so (He loves her so)
And now I know (And now he knows)
This awful blow (That awful blow)
Will lay me low (Will lay him low)
Oh Lordy, Lord, what she did to me (Lord, what she did to he)
I'm just as sad as can be (Oh, sad is he)

Wang Wang blues (He's got the blues)
She's gone and left me with those Wang Wang blues (Those dirty blues)
And let me tell you Mister I never knew I'd be so blue
Until she went away (Oh, mercy me)
Wang Wang Blues (As blue as blue)
I've got the everlasting Wang Wang Blues (So sad and blue)
I'm only asking that my sweet sweetie will come back
And chase away those Wang Wang Blues

Believe me Wang Wang blues (He's got the blues)
She's gone and left me with those Wang Wang blues (Those dirty blues)
And let me tell you Mister I never knew I'd be so blue
Until she went away (Oh, mercy me)
Wang Wang Blues (As blue as blue)
I've got the everlasting Wang Wang Blues (So sad and blue)
I'm only asking that my sweet sweetie will come back
And chase away those Wang Wang Blues
