The lyrics are simple enough- "Blue, blue, blue- the way I feel today.

Recorded live at several Rockford venues, " Don't Tease Me " includes other
winners; "Nicotine Blues," a fun one about a three to four-pack-a-day smoker;
and " Clickety Clack," a number about a train heading west from Windy City to "
Rocky Town U.S.A."
