Gordon F. Phillips Takes Five

BABY BLUE*
There’s a sound that’s buggin’ me,
Baby blue (3),
An’ its’ diggin’ into me,
Baby blue (3).

But what you hear,
It’s all you ever wanted to hear (2),
Baby blue.
Come on, unwind.
Why can’t you give me more of your time? (2),
Baby blue.
There’s a tremor in the air,
Baby blue (3),
An’ it echoes in the air,
Baby blue (3).
But what you hear, etc.

There’s a sound that’s buggin’ me,
Baby blue (3),
An’ it’s diggin’ into me,
Baby Blue (3).
G. F. Phillips
*In 5/4 time, based on the Dave Brubeck Quartet instrumental:  Take Five
