As recorded by ANNETTE HANSHAW: I'm so unhappy, left all alone Ain't got nobody to love now The man I long for is not so strong for me He's not an angel, but I don't care Perhaps a change'll come some day Whatever he is, I want to be his way 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 But I must have that man I'm like an oven that's cryin' for heat He treats me awful 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 it's drivin' me mad He's only human, if he's to be had I must have that man (Orchestral Interlude) 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 it's drivin' me mad He's only human, if he's to be had I must have that man That's all! (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - June 2005) (Updated by Mel Priddle - February 2013) ************ as recorded by Duke Ellington & his Orchestra (vocal - Adelaide Hall) 1928 & 1933 Don't need my mammy and I don't need a friend, My heart is broken, it won't never mend, I ain't much carin' just where I will end, Oh but I must have that man! I'm like an oven that's cryin' for heat, He treats me awful each time that we meet, It's just unlawful how that boy can cheat, Oh 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, Maybe I'm ruled off his list, Oh I'll never be missed! I need that person much worse than 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! I'm so unhappy, left all alone, Ain't got nobody to love now! The man I long for Is not so strong for me! He's not an angel but I don't care, Perhaps a change'll come some day! Whatever he is I want to be his why, That's why I cry every day! (scat) Hades! A lady's not safe in his arms when she's kissed, But I'm afraid that he's cooled off, Maybe I'm ruled off his list, (scat) I must have that man! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - August 2015)
