He Said, He Said

This is sung to a Charleston kind of rhythm. Repeat as needed.

  • [refrain] He said, he said that I cannot sing the blues.
  • He said, he said I can’t write a jazzy tune.
  • But I do choose to sing this jazzy tune for you
  • And I will refuse to let that man give me the blues.
  • Didn’t want to own him, didn’t want to control him.
  • Didn’t even need him. All I wanted to do was please him.


  • If you sing the blues, it’ll be good for you
  • And if you sing the blues, you won’t have to live the blues
  • If you ain’t got money, blues’ll give you room to breathe.
  • If you got no honey, blues gonna give you that sweet release.
