That’s Why I Sing The Blues  

 

Verse 1

Remember when IT only spelled ‘it’

When a rapper was somethin’ round a candy stick

I recall R&B didn’t mean hip hop 

And we was buyin’ tracks down the record shop

 

Verse 2

I remember when mother wasn’t just half a word

An’ you could drive home with your vision blurred

I recall they could sing cos’ they couldn’t cheat

And when songs they made was more than a beat

 

Chorus

Yeah that’s why baby

That’s why I sing the blues

That’s right lady

An’ I got leather shoes

 

Middle 8

Maybe I'm just a little outa step

And I aint got no handle on what is hip

But I sure know what’s buggin’ me

And that’s I need to hear some melody

 

Verse 3

Come on all you girls from the hood

Get on down and dance like you should

It aint gonna hurt you one little bit

To get your mind on the song and the rhythm in your feet

                

Chorus      

 

Get your mind on the song and the rhythm in your feet
