How Blue Can You Get lyrics

Been downhearted, baby, ever since the day we met
I been downhearted, baby, ever since the day we met
Our love is nothing but the blues
Baby, how blue can you get

My love is like a fire but your love is like a cigarette
My love is like a fire but baby, yours is like a cigarette
I watched you step down on it, baby, and crush it
Tell me, how how how blue can you get

Youre evil when Im with you and youre jealous when were apart
Yes, youre evil when Im with you baby, lord have mercy, youre jealous when were apart
How blue can you get ? right here in my heart

I gave you a brand new ford but you said, I want a cadillac
I bought you a ten-dollar dinner, you said, thanks for the snack
I let you live in my penthouse, you said it was just a shack
I gave you seven children and now you wanna give em back

I been downhearted, baby, ever since the day we met
Our love is nothing but the blues
Baby, how blue can you get
