“Some Of Shelly’s Blues” Lyrics

Tell me just one more time the reasons why you must leave
Tell me once more why you’re sure you don’t need me
Tell me again, but don’t think you’ll convince me

Now you’ve said before falling in love again, you’d rather be dead
’Cause when someone breaks your heart, you cry your eyes red
But there’s nothing so hard about the life you’ve led

As far as I can see, there’s no reason for goodbyes
You’re just runnin’ scared, that’s something I won’t buy

And so you lose, I won’t let you go with nothin’ to show but more blues
And all this talk about leavin’ is just, huh, bad news
So you settle down, stay with the one that love you

“Explain it, Boh, explain it.”

[break]

As far as I can see, there’s no reason for goodbye
You’re just runnin’ scared, and that’s something I won’t buy

And so you lose, I won’t let you go with nothin’ to show but more blues
And all this talk about leaving, that’s just bad news
So you settle down, stay with the ones that love you
Yeah, you settle down, stay with the man that loves you
Whoa, you settle down, stay with me
Stay with me

Mike: Heh heh, thanks. Wow. Thank you, thank you so much. Thanks a lot. Ha ha ha ha. That’s great. Okay. Huh huh.
