Poppa's Blues

This song is by Andrew Lloyd Webber and appears on the musical soundtrack Starlight Express (Original London Cast) (1984).

Rocky I:
Hey, Poppa's gonna sing!

Flat-Top:
That stuff is so out of date.

Rocky I:
Cool it man. Poppa's gonna sing!

Rockies:
Poppa don't sing often, but he do sing mean.

Poppa:
Oh the first line of the blues
Is always sung a second time

Rockies:
Oh yeah?

Poppa:
First line of the blues
Is always sung a second time

Rockies:
Kinda smooth!

Poppa:
So by the time you get to the third line
You've had time to think up a rhyme.

Oh there ain't no law that says
The third line has to be different at all.
No, no, there ain't no law that says
The third line has to be different at all.
No there ain't no law that says
The third line has to be different at all.

Never borrow a mouth organ
Not even from your best friend.
No, no, no, never borrow a mouth organ
Not even from your best friend.
'Cause you may survive the blowing,
But the sucking's gonna get you in the end.
Oh yeah!
