About Blues for Breakfast
Composer Matt Dennis, born in Seattle, was a singer, pianist, band leader and composer. Probably his best known composition is “You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To.”


Blues for breakfast, just coffee please
I’m having blues for breakfast, no calories
There’s nothing like a long and sleepless night
To make you lose your appetite
If anything really spoil your day,
It’s when your love goes on her way.

Some good morning this one has been
I find the world around me is caving in
She left me with a dawn for parts unknown
And so it’s blues for breakfast, alone.
