Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!
Blues is Something to Think About
A traditional statement about
a traditional situation
with a new response,
another ending for
One-Sided Bed Blues
I say I'm lonesome now,
but I bet' not be lonesome long
Yeah, I'm lonesome now,
but I don't need to be lonesome too long:
You know, it take a do-right man
to make a pretty woman sing a lonesome song.
Written by Sherley Anne Williams (1944-1999)
