LOOKING FOR MY MAN BLUES as rec by Bessie Smith Sep 28th 1927 New York Lookin' for my man, he can strut his stuff, Lookin' for my man, he can strut his stuff, And when he starts his struttin', I don't know when I've got enough! Hello Central, gimme long distance phone, Hello Central, gimme long distance phone, I'm lookin' for my man 'cause he's done left me alone. He's a short black man, listen people, that ain't all, He's a short black man, listen people, that ain't all, He's got what it takes to make these monkey women fall! He's a red hot papa, melts hearts as cold as ice, He's a red hot papa, melts hearts as cold as ice, Girls, if he ever love you once, you bound to love him twice! I'm lookin' for that man, I'm gonna stop singin' these blues, I'm lookin' for that man, I'm gonna stop singin' the blues, I'm gonna walk till I find him, if I wear out this last pair o' shoes!
