Black And Blue
Lyle Lovett Lyrics


It's Saturday night
You check the tv guide
And pray the black and white
Can keep you satisfied

She had yellow hair
She had high-heel shoes
She red the whole affair
And left you black and blue
In 1956
She was just a kiss
In 1985
How could she come to this

He had yellow hair
He like high-heel shoes
Lipstick was everywhere
And he left her black and blue

So it's Saturday night
You check the tv guide
And pray you'll be all right
Because it's your turn this time

See she had yellow hair
She had high-heel shoes
Lipstick was everywhere
And you left her black and blue

What's it to you
It's black and blue

Always love Cool Lyle Lovett......reminds of a smokey jazz club with the lights down low

Susan Dailey

Timeless Classic, He is so intense...thank you Lyle.

Gail Remp

Some of the stuff is so intensely dark. And it is just so good. I have loved this guy for the first time I saw him on Austin city limits . That was right when he used to sit in the audience and then they invited him up to sing as he progressed... pretty cool..and black and blue is just it!

I first heard this song as a kid and the lyrics flew over my head. Then I heard it as a young adult and thought this was a dark song about domestic violence.

… but reading the lyrics as a slightly older and wiser adult and I realised it's not quite as dark as I imagined it. I suspect both characters have a mutual understanding of the situation and have their safe words.

Reg McCormack

Love Lyall fantastic songsmith

Paul Moore

This song showcases the immense talent of this Texan! His band sure knows how
To back him up... This whole album is outstanding! And His earliest effort.
