Lyrics:
(I'm blue-do-be-do-be-do-be-do)
gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-yeah
(I'm blue-do-be-do-be-do-be-do)
gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-yeah
(I'm blue-do-be-do-be-do-be-do)

I wanna tell all you people
I dropped a penny in the well hoping you would come back soon
I couldn't believe what I heard
A fortune teller told me my love with you was doomed
I hope her reading was wrong
I hope she was wrong cause you been gone too long, come home

Hey

gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-yeah
(I'm blue-do-be-do-be-do-be-do)
gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-yeah
(I'm blue-do-be-do-be-do-be-do)
gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-yeah
(I'm blue-do-be-do-be-do-be-do)

I can't sleep at night for thinking of you
Every night about 2, my love for you comes tumblin' down
I can't stand being here alone
I start a feelin' and a fumblin' but you ain't nowhere around
I hope her reading was wrong
I hope she was wrong cause you been gone too long, come home

Hey

gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-yeah
(I'm blue-do-be-do-be-do-be-do)
gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-yeah
(I'm blue-do-be-do-be-do-be-do)
gong-gong-gong-gong-gong-yeah
(I'm blue-do-be-do-be-do-be-do)
