The Blues Done Come To Roost

The Blues done come to roost

 

The Blues done come to roost, I heard’em outside-a ma wind-a

Those muffled sounds I know by heart

While other fowl are flyin’ south

The blues done come to roost

Those ceruleans, ultramarines n’ cobalts

Buildin’ their home with threads and boughs

Settlin’ in, getting’ cozy, they gonna be here awhile

We know each other quite well

No cause for worry, fret or concern

Weeze ole’ friends from way back when

We gotta mutual respect

The Blues done come to roost

Those azures, royals, n sky’s

Even Picasso had his Blue Period

I been expectin’ ‘em

They’re just passin’ thru

The Blues done come to roost

Those indigos, cadets n’ steels

I’ve set a place at the table for ‘em

Along with Peace, Joy and Reverence

Weeze ole’ friends from way back when

We all get along jus’ fine

The twinklin’ sky, the winter’s first snow, my knowing eyes

The Blues done come to roost

Those midnights, persians, n’ navys

Good to see ya’, come on in

Weeze ole friends from way back when

The Blues done come to roost
