IT DON'T PAY
(Tracy Pendarvis)
TRACY PENDARVIS & THE BLUE NOTES (Scott, 1958)

It don't pay to be lonely
It don't pay to be blue
It don't pay to love someone
When they don't love you
It don't pay, I said-a it don't pay
Well, I don't wanted you to be lonely
I don't wanted us to be blue
I don't wanted to love someone
When they don't love you
It don't pay, I said-a it don't pay

Well, when you love, use your head
Don't love with all of your heart
Then you won't be crying
After the broken heart
I said-a it don't pay, said it don't pay
Well, it don't pay, said-a it don't pay

When you're heart's been broken
And nobody thinks of you
Make a search for true love
It don't pay to be blue
It don't pay, I said-a it don't pay

When you love, use your head
Don't love with all of your heart
Then you won't be crying
After the broken heart
I said-a it don't pay, said it don't pay
Well, it don't pay, said-a it don't pay
Said-a it don't pay
Said-a it don't pay
Said-a it don't pay
