I’ve Got the Blues For You Tonight

My heart goes pitter patter, I’m racing to the phone
Hoping that it’s you, on your way back home
If I come a knockin’, will you hold me tight
I’ve got the blues for you tonight

My heart is all twisted, twisted in a knot
I’ll give you all I have, I’ll give you all I got
           

Your working late and business trips are treating me unkind
Time away from you, drives me out of my mind
Can’t be away from you, or have you out of sight
I’ve got the blues for you tonight

I’ve got the blues so bad now, it’s a down and dirty crime
Won’t rest until I know, your every part is mine

 SOLO

The first time I saw you, saw you in the light
Your sparkling red dress, looked like dynamite

I see your love for me, in those pretty eyes
You know that I love you, for that there’s no disguise
Listen to me closely babe, our love is just so right
I’ve got the blues for you tonight

An air of mystery, and magic in your touch
If I get too close, it may just be too much

So here I am a knocking, yearning for your kiss
Everything about you, is everything I miss
We’ll live happy forever, when you hold me tight
I’ve got the blues for you tonight
I’ve got the blues for you tonight
I’ve got the blues for you tonight
