Kleine verdrietige jongen

Blindelingse Greep nr. 57 uit de RG-Collectie levert de lp This is Jimmy James and the Vagabonds op. Hun belangrijkste nummer is hier al langsgekomen. Ik kies een andere cover, een nummer oorspronkelijk van The Impressions.

You’re cryin’, little boy blue
Are you unhappy little boy blue

Hush your crying don’t ever pout
When you’re young there are things to find out
Bet on good little man you can take it
Little boy blue

You’ve lost your Mummy
Little boy blue
I know you loved her dearly
Little boy blue

But she has gone to a far wondrous land
And took her place in the kingdom of man
But though she’s gone
Her love lingers on to you
Little boy blue

And though she’s gone from this world of man
Always to you she’ll be a guiding hand
So hush up little man weep no more
Little boy blue
Little boy blue
Little boy blue

Little boy blue-hoo-hoo

Little boy blue, 1967
