Baby's Blue

Janis Ian

Baby's blue, and he's blue over you
Babe, he's blue, and I know he's only blue
over you, yeah, over you who were

Sugar and spice (to him)
and everything nice (to him)
You didn't do right to him
Now you no longer lie by him
Babe, he's blue
and I know he's only blue
over you, yeah, only over you

Now, I'm old enough to know there are some things
that should never be heard
I'm old enough to know there are feelings
you just can't put into words
Ah, but he's hurt

He's laughing on the outside, looking in at you
Crying on the inside, looking out at you
And he's laughing outside, smiling outside
He's dying inside

Babe, he's blue
You know he's only blue
over you, yeah, over you
Baby's blue, and you know why he's blue
Only over you
He's blue only over you

Sugar and spice (to him)
and everything nice (to him)
You didn't do right to him
Now you no longer lie by him
Babe, he's blue
and I know he's only blue
over you, yeah, only over you

Baby, he's lonely
and I know he's only blue over you
Only over you
