Lyrics

Can't face the mornin don't wanna leave my bed.
Can't stop this yawnin just wanna rest my head.
A new day is dawnin, feel like a lump o lead.

(Chorus)
I've got the blues those early mornin blues
That will not go away.
Why she walked out on me I just could not say.
Without my honey love, can't face another day.

It's so annoyin when you are feeling low.
A baby's cryin turn off that radio
All gloom and depression, don't really wanna know, Cos...

(Chorus)

I waited all night to meet that friend of mine.
We had a quarrel but now I'm feeling fine.
Miss her so badly, it's been a long long time. Now....

(Chorus)
