THE MAN I LOVE
Ella Fitzgerald


Someday he'll come along

The man I love

And he'll be big and strong

The man I love

And when he comes my way

I'll do my best to make him stay


He'll look at me and smile

I'll understand

And in a little while

He'll take my hand

And though it seems absurd

I know we both won't say a word


Maybe I shall meet him Sunday

Maybe Monday, maybe not

Still I'm sure to meet him one day

Maybe Tuesday will be my good news day


He'll build a little home

Just meant for two

From which I'll never roam

Who would, would you?

And so, all else above,

I'm waiting for the man I love
