How Blue Can You Get?

I cannot resist the call to sing the ex-franchisee blues. Here is a classic.

How Blue Can You Get?By Z.Z. Bling (Adapted from a song by B.B. King)To Be Sung By Down Hearted Zees

I've been down hearted baby ever since the day we met I've been down hearted babyever since the day we met

our work is nothing but the blues baby, how blue can you get?

my money is burning like fire and my zor is the cigarette my money is burning like fire and my zor is the cigarette You told me you had a proven systembut that was just b.s.! tell me how, tell me how how blue can you get?

you're bumbling when I'm with you and you are covetous when we're apart you're bumbling you're so bumbling when I'm with you baby, you are covetous when we're apart how blue can you get baby? the answer is right here in my heart

I gave you a $40,000 fran fee and you said "I want 5 Cadillac" I gave two-tenths of my revenue and you said "thanks for the snack"! I bought a glistening big store, and you said it was just a radio shack! I gave you seven units and now you are taking them back!
