Henry Blue: A Poem/Song

Source

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Now his whole problem was he wouldn't listen.

On account of that his pappy had to whip 'im.

Before you know it he was off to prison.

For stealin' a car with the Mayor's wife in it.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Now we all know Henry was a jerk.

As long as he lived, no fan of work.

There was no end to his devil's mischief.

Don't let 'im get his hands on the malt liquor.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Now Henry was a guy who liked to look fly.

Stand on the corner with a bunch of guys.

The moon is full, Henry's showing out.

Mamas look up your daughters, the wolfman's out.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Now one day Henry had an idea.

Swiggin' Wild Turkey it wasn't too clear.

Gonna grab a fast car, put a crew together.

Rob the old town bank, score a lot of lettuce.

Leave the engine runnin', mind what I said.

Before he got back he was shot in the head.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

Henry Blue, Henry Blue. Let me tell you 'bout Mr. Henry Blue.

This could go down good with a heavy blues backbeat and a can of suds.

For quite a sometime I just had an exposure of innocent yet matured feelings, the end of Henry is sad but it lighten ups the life with a positive energy. Thanks for sharing wingedcentaur.

    The first step is to know what you do not know. The second step is to ask the right questions. I reserve the right to lean on my ignorance.
