"The Half Of It, Dearie" Blues lyrics

Mmmm (scat)



I've got the "You don't know the half of it, dearie" blues

Oh how I wish you'd drop that anger, and end your cruise

You're just a duffer, who makes me suffer

All the younger set, says your heart's to let

I've got the "You don't know the half of it, dearie" blues



Mmmm (scat)



(instrumental bridge)



I've got the "You don't know the half of it, dearie" blues

Although I know that love's a gamble, I hate to lose

Life will be duller, we'll have no color

Jill without a Jack, makes the future black

I've got the "You don't know the half of it, dearie" blues



Mmmm (scat)



I've got the "You don't know the half of it, dearie" blues
