Billie Holiday I Must Have That Man! Lyrics

Last updated: 06/04/2012 12:00:00 PM

Don't want my mammy
I don't need a friend
My heart is broken
It won't ever mend
I ain't much carin'
Just where I will end
I must have that man

I'm like an oven
That's crying for heat
He treats me awfully
Each time that we meet
It's just unlawful
How that boy can cheat
But I must have that man

He's hot as Hades
A lady's not safe in his arms
When she's kissed
But I'm afraid that he's cooled off
And maybe I'm ruled off his list
I'll never be missed

I need that person much worse 'n just bad
I'm half alive and he's drivin' me mad
He's only human if he's to be had
I must have that man
