    Why she sings the blues , may have nothing or everything to do with you.
    Why she sings the blues, cause she has more than paid her dues.
    Her hearts been broken along with promises made.
    Her head is aching from not getting paid.
    Her bed is lonely cause her man is up and gone.
    She sings the blues cause she feels she is all alone.

    Why she sings the blues, may have nothing or everything to do with economics. The Dow Jones and Nasdaq are foreign to her and the numbers make her vomit. She went to school , and even married, and all her kids alone she carried. No man , no benefits, two jobs and an alchoholic mother, no where for her to run for cover.

    Why she sings the blues , may have nothing or everything to do with you.
    You went to school got an MBA and then didn't even look her way, even though you fathered her children. You chose another for your wife, and left her filled with bitterness and a life of strife. She struggles along trying to be positive, tried therapy, aroma and pschiatric all to no avail. And when you
    come with your face torn up , the children start to wail.

    Why she sings the blues, may have nothing or everything to do with you.
    How you treated her when you said you loved her and all the things you don't do.

    I just love y'all and I am so proud of all of ya!

    Thanks for always, always showing me love and giving me strength to carry on when I am not fully well, but I just want you to know that this is the best feeling in the world besides you know...
    For real! Though I will continue to sing the praise of Destee for days...
    And as Arnold says..."I'll be back!"
    Blessings On Ya House!
