Mood Indigo
Thelonious Monk Lyrics


You ain't never been blue; no, no, no,
You ain't never been blue,
Till you've had that mood indigo.
That feelin' goes stealin' down to my shoes
While I just sit here and sigh, "Go 'long blues".

I always get that mood indigo,
Since my baby said goodbye.
And in the evenin' when the lights are low,
I'm so lonely I could cry.
'Cause there's nobody who cares about me,
I'm just a poor fool that's bluer than blue can be.
When I get that mood indigo,
I could lay me down and die.

You ain't never been blue; no, no, no,
You ain't never been blue,
Till you've had that mood indigo.
That feelin' goes stealin' down to my shoes
While I just sit here and sigh, "Go 'long blues".

This rendition is in the true spirit of improvisation and bluesyness

Postatility

Monk clearly was the perfect successor to Duke. Both greatly admired each other.

Monk playing Mood Indigo is like finding out Bruce Wayne is Batman long before anyone else...it just don't get no better.
