Blue Umbrella

sun shines down on love

rain spatters lonely grief

only my blue umbrella's

a consolation and relief


she's left me for another

I'm stuck in a Scotch mist

imagining her in his arms

the passion of their tryst


but for my blue umbrella

I'd sink down and drown

or reach for my hat and

decamp to another town


the storm rages overhead

my umbrella keeps me dry

though tears fill my eyes

for I can't help it but cry


she took my self-respect

upset my best laid plans

I feel a dire failure, one

of life's pitiful also-rans


it drives me mad thinking

of her and her bold fellow

but I'll be dry in the shade

of my dear blue umbrella
