    Lyrics

    Why is it that civilized humanity
    Can make the world so wrong?
    In this hurly-burly of insanity
    Our dreams cannot last long.

    We've reached a deadline,
    A press headline,
    Every sorrow.
    Blues value
    Is news value
    Tomorrow.

    Blues
    Twentieth century blues
    Are getting me down.
    Blues
    Escape those weary
    Twentieth century blues.

    Why,
    If there's a God in the sky,
    Why shouldn't He grin
    High
    Above this dreary
    Twentieth century din?

    In this strange illusion,
    Chaos and confusion,
    People seem to lose their way.
    What is there to strive for,
    Love or keep alive for,
    Say, 'Hey, hey!'
    Call it a day?

    Blues
    Nothing to win or to lose,
    It's getting me down.
    Blues
    Escape those weary
    Twentieth century blues.

    We've reached a deadline,
    A press headline,
    Every sorrow.
    Blues value
    Is news value
    Tomorrow.

    Blues
    Nothing to win or to lose,
    It's getting me down.
    Blues
    Escape those dreary
    Twentieth century
    Blues.
