So disappointed, love's double-jointed, Photo of Blanche Calloway
Nothin' but a joke anyhow;
I'm a man-hater; mine was a traitor,
I'll never trust another now.

It's suicide to think and think;
That is why I drink and drink;
Misery, misery,
That is all love has ever given me.
You'd cry too, if you knew,
Just how mean and lowdown a man can be.

My life was one sweet song,
'Til that heartbreakin' day,
Some no-good came along
And stole my man away.

Deep blue sea, blue like me,
Soon be bound
There to drown
My misery.

Deep blue sea,
I'll soon be bound
There to drown
My misery.
