My momma done told me to come here
Where the nights are really blue
My momma done birthed me here
To a place where there are two faced men
And women too. This place is dark of all
The time. My momma raised me here
And nothing has changed. Green rules
The blues. Material things are always
At the heart of the blues. Clues are given
By the way that the walk, talk, and gyrate.
Tornado winds twist as a intellectual gets
The gist of what's going on in the inside of
Their blues selves. Wow the night is blue
It is always dark out here. My momma done told me
To come here to the midnight blue. My momma
Done birthed me here and the womwn and men
Are two faced too. Welcome to the seldom bright
Night blues. Come here if your momma done told you dear!
