And I feel so silly Betting on the dice And a lover seldom sees The same girl twice And that is why (that is why) Whoa, that's why I chose (That's why I chose) I chose to sing the blues Yes, I did Now I could've been a doctor Helping the sick I could've been a lawyer But you know that ain't my stick Cause I'd feel so bad If a patient didn't get well And I feel just as bad To leave a client in jail And that is why (that is why) Whoa, that's why I chose (That's why I chose) I chose to sing the blues Now a man has a lot That he could resent Just to think I could have been President But I can't understand What politicians say So I want to talk to you In my own little way And that is why (that is why) Whoa (that's why I chose) I chose to sing the blues Yes, I did, friends Don't you know what I mean I like what I'm doing You know I like the blues Everybody understands what I mean When I sing something like this here That's what I'm talking about When I sing
