Song Description

Singer describes how The princess of the blues steals your heart, your money, and basically cuts loose with her singing, and why she is the Princess of the Blues... nice, teasing, a bit naughty and playful, a little princess indeed...

Story Behind the Song

Imagine you're waitin' for the main act in a club, and the band sings this to you

Lyrics

Princess of the Blues

She's been anointed, and she's been blessed
And all of the legends, are tellin' me she's the best
I'd like you to welcome, how could you refuse
She's the princess of the blues

She gets down gets it dirty,
Then she melts it like honey
She makes a grown man cry,
While she stealin' his money
So here she comes, hmm , looks like she's in the mood
She's the princess of the blues

So when she wants to get funky,
She just leans on in
And she's sittin' - way back on the back beat
Right where the good stuff's always been

She knows how to be precious,
& then she's somethin' Deelicious
Such a grand occasion, downright auspicious
Let me hear it in the house, you ain't got nothin' to lose, 'cause she's the princess of the blues

and then she goes.... oooh ... oh yeah... (solo)

So when she wants to get funky,
She just leans on in
And she's sittin' - way back on the back beat
Right where the good stuff's always been

She's got the time, she's gonna stand the test
You better get yourself ready,
cause I know you're gonna be impressed
Yeah you're sure gonna remember,
the first time you heard
The princess of the blues

Now I'm almost speechless, just another man whose
Got a tinglin' spine, right down into his shoes
Yeah the sister's in deep
Just like her mama was too
Cause she's the princess of the blues
