​Sentimental Melancholy

This song is by Billie Holiday and appears on the album Early Classics (1992).

Sentimental and melancholy
Whenever I think about you
It's only a mood,
A brief interlude
That's better described as just feeling blue

I suppose that it's just my folly
To keep it alive as I do
But it's a kind of sugar coated misery
And foolish as it seems
I thought I'd like to be
Sentimental and melancholy
Whenever I think about you
