​Babe's Blues

This song is by Betty Carter and appears on the compilation album I Can't Help It (1992).

Small children pound
Babe's blues around
Blues made them cry

Unlike adults
Have fewer faults
And as a rule
They're pretty cool

They meet blues
They greet blues
Then beat blues

Kids take a fall
But like a ball
Bounce up again

They'll shed a tear
Too full of fear
They're not afraid
They've got it made

Kids meet blues
Then greet blues
And beat blues

Small girls and boys
Treat blues as toys
Like in a game

Blues come their way
Most every day
Kids let them in
Don't let them win

Kids make blues
Then fake blues
Then shake blues

(24 bars scat)
(24 bars horn solo)

We tiny todds
Scat blues a lot
But never grieve

Kids in the know
When feeling low
Cries blues away
Don't let them stay

Kids spy blues
Kids eye blues
Goodbye blues

Kids make blues
Then fake blues
Then shake blues

Kids make blues
Then fake blues
Then shake blues
