Blues on the Corner
the stories that I have been telling her since we met on the corner.
We use to have such an unstoppable time,
as we sat and whispered in tune, with a beautiful rhyme.
But now I sit alone with blues on the corner.
Nobody here, but this empty old bottle of wine.
until I woke up and remembered it was you that really counted.
Now I'm the forgotten one waiting for you.
While you're out there playing it cool, I'm here playing the fool.
And here I sit alone with blues on the corner.

with any wealthy man she meets.
Well she's not too discreet, a major attraction.
She's out to make your night complete.

Thinkin' of All the Things You Are.
To me You Stepped Out of a Dream.
Now I'm a fool Like Someone in Love.
In Chicago only my Body and Soul.
I gave up all My Favorite Things.
So What. It just Don't Mean a Thing.
I still got all my Pieces of Dreams.
