Blue as the heaven, blue as the sky,
I got the blues, here's the reason why:
I done lost my baby, going where I belong,
I done lost my baby and the whole world is going all wrong.

I stood and gazed far away,
Lookin' for my baby, didn't have a word to say,
I done lost my baby, going where I belong,
I done lost my baby and the whole world is going all wrong.

Spoken: Girls, I done lost my baby. Too bad! Too bad! Tell some sweet man I say come up and see me sometime! I'm just a lonely girl!

I stood and thinkin', didn't know what to do,
You got my baby, I'm so lonesome and blue,
I done lost my baby, going where I belong,
I done lost my baby and the whole world is going all wrong.

I love my baby, now I'm down and out,
I ain't gone tell nobody what it's all about.
I done lost my baby, going where I belong,
I done lost my baby and the whole world is going all wrong.

Spoken: Take it, boys, I'm goin' where I belong!
