This song, written by a man named Melvin Endsley, was #1 on the pop charts for 10 weeks during my childhood, just about the time I was becoming a fan of popular music, and wanting to buy records (which then cost a dollar). Judging by the video, the singer wasn't long out of his youth, either, although he was actually almost as old as my parents. This YouTube clip is from a TV show everyone watched when I was young. Maybe Anni remembers it as well. The song was popular almost forever, so even you young 'uns might know it, too. As a sometime songwriter myself, although totally and completely unsuccessful, I hope Mr. Endsley got plenty of royalties for this long-time world favourite.
Well, I never felt more like singin' the blues
'Cause I never thought I'd ever lose
Your love, dear, why'd you do me this way?
'Cause everythin's wrong, 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
Nothin' left for me to do
But cry-y-y-y over you
Well, I never felt more like runnin' away
But why should I go? I couldn't stay
Without you, you got me singin' the blues.
