Billie HolidayMy Man

It's cost me a lot But there's one thing that I've got It's my man Cold and wet, tired you bet But all that I soon forget With my man He's not much for looks And no hero out of books Is my man Two or three girls has he That he likes as well as me But I love him! I don't know why I should He isn't good, he isn't true He beats me too What can I do? Oh, my man I love him so He'll never know All my life is just despair But I don't care When he takes me in his arms The world is bright, all right What's the difference if I say I'll go away, When I know I'll come back on my knees some day? For whatever my man is I am his forever more Oh, my man I love him Sometimes I say If I could just get away With my man He'd go straight sure as fate For it never is too late For a man I just like to dream Of a cottage by a stream With my man Where a few flowers grew And perhaps a kid or two Like my man And then my eyes get wet I most forget till he gets hot And tells me not to talk such rot Oh, my man I love him so He'll never know All my life is just despair But I don't care When he takes me in his arms The world is bright, all right What's the difference if I say I'll go away, When I know I'll come back on my knees some day? For what ever my man is I am his forever more
