Langston Hughes





Blues at Dawn

I don’t dare start thinking in the morning.
I don’t dare start thinking in the morning.
        If I thought thoughts in bed,
        Them thoughts would bust my head -
So I don’t dare start thinking in the morning.

I don’t dare remember in the morning
Don’t dare remember in the morning.
        If I recall the day before,
        I wouldn’t get up no more -
So I don’t dare remember in the morning.
