  • 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
