Blues Enough

Okay, so I got shanghai'd into judging a "King Of The Blues" contest. I was given a list of qualities to check off - ability, presence, orginality, versatility, and

There. At the end of the page. In capital letters. Bolded (sorry Arlo, couldn't resist). Question 5 - Blues Content.

Is it blues enough for you?

The criteria sheet must have been written by a frustrated music critic...

 

Got a black cat bone
Got a mojo in my hand
Got a black cat bone
Got a mojo in my hand
Got the blues so bad
I can hardly even stand

(Chorus)
Is that blues enough for ya?
Is that blues enough for ya?
Does it do enough for ya?
Is that blues enough for ya?
Does it make the score
Do you want some more
Is that blues enough for ya?

No time to play
'Cause I work my self to death
No time to play
'Cause I work my self to death
And I'm running so fast
I can't ever catch my breath

Is that blues enough for ya?
Is that blues enough for ya?
Does it do enough for ya?
Is that blues enough for ya?
Does it make the score
Do you want some more
Is that blues enough for ya?

Hard hard times
Don't know what I'm going through
Hard hard times
Don't know what I'm going through
Slept on the cold hard ground
By the age of 22

Is that blues enough for ya?
Is that blues enough for ya?
Does it do enough for ya?
Is that blues enough for ya?
Does it make the score
Do you want some more
Is that blues enough for ya?

Do I show enough pain
Do I bend the strings right
Is the bass too loose
Are the drums too tight?
Is that blues enough for ya?
Is that blues enough for ya?

Is that blues enough for ya?
Is that blues enough for ya?
Does it do enough for ya?
Is that blues enough for ya?
Does it make the score
Do you want some more
Is that blues enough for ya?
