T-bone walker, jr. - Mean old world

This is a mean old world,
Baby to live in by yourself.
This is a mean old world,
Baby to live in by yourself.
Can't get the woman you love,
Cause you know she's lovin' someone else.

Well I drink to keep from worryin'
Baby and I smile to keep from cryin'.
Yes I drink to keep from worryin'
And you know I smile to keep from cryin'.
That's to keep the public from knowin'
Just what I have on my mind.
