LEE AARON lyrics - Chaser For The Blues

"Chaser For The Blues"
(Lee Aaron)

Dry martini.. on the wetbar...
I sip an' wonder.. where you are...
Are you.. alone.. tonight..
Or is someone.. adoring you...

Another cocktail's.. comin' my way
I wish tomorrow, would come.. some other day...
But tonight... just to get through...
Ta start me, thinkin' 'bout forgettin' you...

Hey buddy, give me a chaser for the blues...

Sweet cigarillos, and cheap perfume...
Fill up this otherwise, half-empty room
In a gin and vermouth haze..
I find myself slippin' away..

Haunted by the memories...
The tenderness, of your kiss
Is the one thing that I, I really miss
And the last thing... that I wanna do...
Is to be here, thinkin' 'bout forgettin' you

Hey buddy, give me a chaser for the blues...

Mama said it was my daddy's crutch
But sometimes a bourbon, can be virtuous...
And this ain't the first time, I know he'd understand
It won't be the last time, I wash away a man...

I sit alone here, with my new friend
Ah he don't talk much, but 'e listens on and...
And people carry... on, lovers dance to my sad song
And I am just invisible...

Dry martini.. on the wetbar..
I sit here knowin', that wherever you are...
Your heart... is shiny an' new...
While my heart.. is still, the eternal ingenue...

Hey buddy.., give me a chaser for.. the blues...

A chaser for the blues...
Ha-hi-ha-ho..
So I can leave this smoky room...
Forgettin' to think...
About
You...
