Song lyrics to Blues in the Night (1941). Music by Harold Arlen, Lyrics by Johnny Mercer. Performed by John Garfield in Thank Your Lucky Stars

My mama done told me when I was in knee-pants
My mama done told me, she said Son
A woman will sweet-talk ya, she’ll give you the big eye
But when that sweet talkin’ is done
A woman’s a two-face, a worrisome thing
Who’ll leave ya to sing the blues in the night
