Text:

Well, it’s hard to be a gambler
Bettin’ on the number
That changes ev’ry time
Well, you think you’re gonna win

Think she’s givin’ in
A stranger’s all you find
Yeah, it’s hard to figure out
What she’s all about

That she’s a woman through and through
She’s a complicated lady, so color my baby moody blue,
Oh, Moody blue
Tell me am I gettin’ through

I keep hangin’ on
Try to learn the song
But I never do
Oh, Moody blue,

Tell me who I’m talkin’ to
You’re like the night and day
And it’s hard to say
Which one is you.

Well, when Monday comes she’s Tuesday,
When Tuesday comes she’s Wednesday,
Into another day again
Her personality unwinds

Just like a ball of twine
On a spool that never ends
Just when I think I know her well
Her emotions reveal,

She’s not the person that
I though I knew
She’s a complicated lady, so color my baby moody blue,
Oh, Moody blue

Tell me am I gettin’ through
I keep hangin’ on
Try to learn the song
But I never do

Oh, Moody blue,
Tell me who I’m talkin’ to
You’re like the night and day
And it’s hard to say
Which one is you
