My man don't love me Treats me oh, so mean My man don't he love me Treats me awful mean He's the lowest man That I've ever see He wears high drape pants Stripes are really yellow He wears high drape pants Stripes area really yellow But when he starts in to love me He's so fine and mellow Love will make you drink and gamble Make you stay out all night long Love will make you drink and gamble Make you stay out all night long Love will make you do things That you know is wrong But if you treat me right, baby I'll stay home every day If you treat me right, baby I'll stay home every day But you're so mean to me, baby I know you're gonna drive me away Love is just like a faucet It turns off and on Love is like a faucet It turns off and on Sometimes when you think it's on, baby It has turned off and gone (Transcribed from the Billie Holiday recording by Mel Priddle - January 2005)
