CYNDI LAUPER lyrics - Early In The Morning

CYNDI LAUPER
"Early In The Morning"
(Dallas Bartley / Hickman / Louis Jordan)
feat. Allen Toussaint & B.B. King

Early in the morning, and I can't get it right
Had a little fight with my baby last night
Early in the morning, early in the morning,
Early in the morning and I ain't got nothing but the blues

I went to the places where we used to go
I went to her house and she don't live there no more
Early in the morning, early in the morning,
Early in the morning and I ain't got nothing but the blues

I went to her girlfriend's house but she was not about
I went to her father's house and he began to shout
Early in the morning, early in the morning,
Early in the morning and I ain't got nothing but the blues

I went to the diner to get me something to eat
The waiter looked at me and said, "Buddy, you sure look beat!"
Early in the morning, early in the morning,
Early in the morning and I ain't got nothing but the blues

I had a lot of money when I started out
I lost my baby and the money ran out
Early in the morning, early in the morning,
Early in the morning and I ain't got nothing but the blues
