HE'S A GOOD MAN TO HAVE AROUND Milton Ager (m) Jack Yellen (l) 1929 as rec by Sophie Tucker 1929 also rec by - Lee Morse & her Blue Grass Boys '29 The Cotton Pickers '29 Bert Firman & his Rhythmic Eight '29 Jimmie Noone & his Apex Club Orch '29 Kay Starr '50 There's one thing that a woman can't live without, And that's a man! There's one thing that keeps a woman always in doubt, And that's a man! Now I'm no exception to this rule, I know thay say that I'm a fool, But there's one thing that I'm simply crazy about, And that's my man! He's not good looking, not handsome or tall, I couldn't tell you how he made me fall; There's nothin' to him, but still and all, He's a good man to have around! Ge's not a stepper, can't even waltz, In conversation he stammers and halts; Poor little sweet man, with all his faults He's a good man to have around! And at times when I fly off my lid, "Go this minute!", I shout, But if he did, I would die without him! He's not exactly my ides of The perfect lover from heaven above! But what's the difference, the man you love Is a good man to have around! You wouldn't like him, he's not on the show; Not to be trusted, I learned long ago! Just good for nothin', But I don'y know, He's a good man to have around! When dinner's over, I turn and he's gone, I hear him sneakin' along about dawn! I don't say nothin', 'cause from then on He's a good man to have around! And at times, when he starts to row, I don't care if I live! But he knows how to make me forgive him! Bought a revolver, I don't mean for fun! I oughta shoot him for things that he's done! But I can't pull the trigger, son of a gun! He's a good man to have around!
