From Lil Hardin Armstrong and Her Swing Orchestra, 1936-1940, Chronological Classics,  vol. 564.

Now, I'm singing a blue song, much bluer than blue,
I lost a friend I thought good and true,
Without anyone in
Since yesterday morning,
I'm queen of the blues.

Now, my eyes are all glassy, but I ain't had a drink,
Spent twenty-four hours just tryin' to think;
Why did he leave me?
Why did he leave me?
Oooh, bluer than blue.

He's like a disease,
Makes you green,
Lose all ambition, have run down condition;
My mind's insane,
My heart's aflame,
I miss him so,
Oh, yes, I know!

No other love song will I ever sing,
Blues in my heart will always ring,
Why did he leave me?
Why did he leave me?
Oooh, bluer than blue.

Why did he leave me?
Why did he leave me?
Oooh, bluer than blue.
