Bessie SmithOutside Of That

I've got the meanest man in the land But his love is that sticking brand His kiss just lingers on my lips And thrill me to my fingertips People say I'm a fool He's heartless and also cruel But outside of that, he's all right with me Outside of that, he's sweet as he can be I love him as true as stars above He beats me up, but how he can love I never loved like that since the day I was born I said for fun, I don't want you no more And when I said that, I made sweet papa sore He blacked my eyes, I couldn't see Then he pawned the things he gave to me But outside of that, he's all right with me I said for fun, I don't want you no more And when I said that, I made sweet papa sore When he pawned my things I said: you're a dirty old thief Now, then he turned around and knocks out both of my teeth Outside of that, he's all right with me
