Though folks with good intentions Tell me to save my tears Well I'm so mad about him I can't live without him Never treats me sweet and gentle The way he should I've got it bad And that ain't good My poor heart is so sentimental Not made of wood I've got it so bad And that ain't good But when the fish are jumpin' And Friday rolls around My man an' I, we gin some We pray some, and sin some He don't love me like I love him The way he should I've got it bad And that ain't good Yes I've got it bad And that ain't good (Contributed by Bill Huntley - February 2005) ****** as rec by Ella Fitzgerald w Duke Ellington & his Orch June 25th 1957 New York The poets say that all who love are blind, But I'm in love and I know what time it is! The Good Book says "Go seek and ye shall find"; Well, I have sought and my, what a climb it is! My life is just like the weather, It changes with the hours, When he's near I'm "fair and warmer", When he's gone I'm "cloudy with showers". In emotion, like the ocean, it's either sink or swim When a woman loves a man like him! Never treats me sweet and gentle, The way he should, I got it bad and that ain't good. My poor heart is sentimental, Not made of wood, I got it bad and that ain't good. But when the weekend's over, And Monday rolls around, I end up like I start out, Crying my heart out! He don't love me like I love him, No, nobody could, I got it bad and that ain't good. So bad, so bad! I got it so bad, so bad. Though folks with good intentions Tell me to save my tears, I'm glad I'm mad about him, I can't live without him! Lord above me Make him love me, The way he should! like a lonely weeping willow, Lost in the wood, The things I tell mt pillow No woman should! I got it bad, bad, So bad and that ain't good!
