My World Is Blue

DEADLY SIN BLUES

What if I can’t find a girl to wed
Maybe there’s no girl for me to wed
I’d hate to greet the sunrise
Beside myself in an empty bed

Like an anxious child I pledge
Allegiance to the devil’s hymn
A life of worry, a mind on edge
Momma calls the deadliest of sins

What if the boss forgets my name
Maybe he won’t know my name
I’d hate to fall down on the job
Leading fools in corporate games

Like an anxious child I pledge
Allegiance to the devil’s hymn
A life of worry, a mind on edge
Momma calls the deadliest of sins

What if I’m gone before I know
Maybe I’ll be gone before I know
I’d hate to find this dress rehearsal
Before a more intolerable show

Like an anxious child I pledge
Allegiance to the devil’s hymn
A life of worry, a mind on edge
Momma calls the deadliest of sins

What if the skies fold up and fall
Maybe the skies will fold up and fall
I’d hate to see the world no longer
Ruled by rag dolls standing tall

Like an anxious child I pledge
Allegiance to the devil’s hymn
A life of worry, a mind on edge
Momma calls the deadliest of sins
