  1. 20th Century Blues
(Noël Coward) Why is it that civilized humanity Can make the world so wrong ? In this hurly-burly of insanity Our dreams cannot last long. We've reached a deadline, A press headline, Every sorrow. Blues value Is news value Tomorrow. Blues — Twentieth century blues Are getting me down. Blues — Escape those weary Twentieth century blues. Why, If there's a God in the sky, Why shouldn't He grin High Above this dreary Twentieth century din ? In this strange illusion, Chaos and confusion, People seem to lose their way. What is there to strive for, Love or keep alive for, Say, 'Hey, hey!' Call it a day ? Blues — Nothing to win or to lose, It's getting me down. Blues — Escape those weary Twentieth century blues. We've reached a deadline, A press headline, Every sorrow. Blues value Is news value Tomorrow. Blues — Nothing to win or to lose, It's getting me down. Blues — Escape those dreary Twentieth century Blues.
