My Man (Mon Homme) 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 is 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 despair
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 am his forevermore
