Bb            Eb              Bb                   Eb
Just when I’m down, I’ll be a clown, I’ll play the fool.

[Breakdown] - 

C              F/C      
Will he take a sailboat ride? 

F          G      F

Dm     Em      F                A   Ab    
In the morning when the day’s begun


- ’hello good morning, how are you? ’

    C      Dm      Em         G      Am
And in the evening or the noonday sun

Bluesy monday is the one day that they come here,

Bb        Eb           Bb             Eb
When they haunt me and taunt me in my cage.

Bb          Eb                   Bb                 Eb
I mock them all, they’re feelin’ small, they got no answer

Bb              Eb                Bb              Eb     Gm
They’re playin’ dumb but I’m just lauging as they rage


[Chorus] - 

Cm             Cm/Bb            Ab                Ab Gm
Please Don’t arrange to have me sent to no asylum

F                           Bb
It’s only a game I play for fun

          Eb      Bb          Eb
I’ve been foolin’ everyone - everyone.

Eb F F#  F# Ab A  A B

In the morning when the day’s begun


- ’do you think it looks like rain’?

And in the evening or the noonday sun

C         Dm        Em     F  G   Am
Is it the beginning or the sorry end?
