My Man Lyrics

by Billie Holiday

It cost me a lot
But there's one thing that I've got
It's my man, it's my man

Cold or wet tired, you bet
All of this I'll soon forget
With my man

He's not much on looks
He's no hero out of books
But I love him, yes, I love him

Two or three girls has he
That he likes as well as me
But I love him

I don't know why I should
He isn't true, he beats me, too
What can I do?

Oh, my man, I love him so he'll never know
All my life is just a spare but I don't care
When he takes me in his arms
The world is bright all right

What's the difference if I say I'll go away
When I know I'll come back
On my knees someday

For whatever my man is
I'm his for evermore
