Monkerys the Blues -Carmen McRae

Being alone, life is your own
But sometimes the cost is dear
Being complete ,knowing defeat
Keeping on from year to year
It takes some Doing
Monkering the blues you hear
Keeping on from year to year

Life is a school
Less your a fool
But the learning brings you pain
Know when and once
Your just a dunce
Trial and error loss and gain
It takes some doing
Monkerys a slow slow train
Trial and error loss and gain

Finding your one place in the sun
Doesn’t come the easy way
Living is cheap, nothing is cheap
Measured by the dues you pay
It takes some doing
Monkerings à blue highway
Measured by the dues you pay
You got to pay them dues yeah
