Here are the lyrics to “Singing the Blues” by Guy Mitchell:

Well, I never felt more like singin’ the blues
‘Cause I never thought that I’d ever lose
Your love dear, why’d you do me this way?
Well, I never felt more like cryin’ all night
’cause everythin’s wrong, and nothin’ ain’t right
Without you, you got me singin’ the blues.

The moon and stars no longer shine
The dream is gone I thought was mine
There’s nothin’ left for me to do
But cry-hy-hy-hy over you (cry over you)
Well, I never felt more like runnin’ away
But why should I go ’cause I couldn’t stay
Without you, you got me singin’ the blues.

Well, I never felt more like singin’ the blues
‘Cause I never thought that I’d ever lose
Your love dear, why’d you do me this way?
Well, I never felt more like cryin’ all night
‘Cause everythin’s…

Well, I never felt more like singin’ the blues
‘Cause I never thought that I’d ever lose
Your love dear, why’d you do me this way?
Well, I never felt more like cryin’ all night
‘Cause everythin’s wrong, and nothin’ ain’t right
Without you, you got me singin’ the blues.

Oh, the moon and stars no longer shine
The dream is gone I thought was mine
There’s nothin’ left for me to do
But cry-hy-hy-hy over you (cry over you)
Well, I never felt more like runnin’ away
But why should I go ’cause I couldn’t stay
Without you, you got me singin’ the blues
