mood indigo lyrics – billie holiday

duke ellington / irving mills / albany bigard

you ain’t been blue
no, no, no
you ain’t been blue
till you’ve had that mood indigo
that feelin goes stealin down to my shoes
while i sit and sigh “go ‘long, blues”
always get that mood indigo
since my baby said goodbye
in the evenin when lights are low
i’m so lonesome i could cry
’cause there’s n*body who cares about me
i’m just a soul who’s bluer than blue can be
when i get that mood indigo
i could lay me down and die
