Born To Be Blue

Born To Be Blue
music by Robert Wells (left)
lyric by Mel Torme (right)

Some folks were meant to live in clover but they are such a chosen few;
And clover being green is something I've never seen
'Cause I was born to be blue.

When there's a yellow moon above me they say there's moonbeams I should view;
But moonbeams being gold are something I can't behold
'Cause I was born to be blue.

When I met you the world was bright and sunny; when you left the curtain fell.
I'd like to laugh but nothing strikes me funny; now my world's a faded pastel.

Well, I guess I'm luckier than some folks;
I've known the thrill of loving you;
And that alone is more than I was created for
'Cause I was born to be blue...
