[Chorus:] See that big blue note Over there on the counter You don't want to read that thing, man It's a real 'get you down'er But don't you dare say Nothin' else bad about her She's gone
No no no, no, no, don't throw it away 'Cause tonight I might need it It gets real lonely around here at night sometimes And I have to reread it Besides, you show it to the boys downtown They won't believe that She's gone
There used to be a time I was all she ever wanted All the man that she'll ever need I come home to find Just like that, she's up and vanished And the only thing she left behind for me
Is this big blue note Folded up in my pocket Yeah, don't laugh It's been two months I still got it Sometimes I have to read the sucker twice Just to make sure I ain't forgot that She's gone
You know, my psychiatrist said 'Tell me what do you see When you look at these ink spots Of reds and yellows and greens You know, I looked at 'em all But they all looked to me like Big blue notes
Stand high on this cliff Overlookin' the sea With my big blue note paper airplane That I just set free And I'm gonna wait here a few more minutes And if it don't come back to me, huh You guessed it She's gone
Crash landin' Bye bye, baby

His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
