I MUST HAVE THAT MAN - ELLA FITZGERALD WITH HER FAMOUS ORCHESTRA
' I'm so unhappy, left all alone ain't got nobody to love now
The man I long for is not 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.
CHORUS; ' 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, 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 la-dy'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 n' he's drivin' me mad,
He's only human, if he's to be had ' I must have that man !'
