8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Shades of night are falling and I'm lonely,
Standing on the corner feeling blue.
Sweethearts out for fun,  Pass me one by one,
Guess I'll wind up like I always do, with only;
Me and my shadow,
Strolling down the avenue.
Me and my shadow,
Not a soul to tell our troubles to.
And when it's twelve o'clock,  We climb the stair,
We never knock,  For nobody's there,
Just me and my shadow,
All alone and feeling blue.
