Billie Holiday

"Billie's Blue (I Love My Man)"

I love my man
I'm a liar if I say I don't
I love my man
I'm a liar if I say I don't
But I'll quit my man
I'm a liar if I say I won't

I've been your slave, baby
Ever since I've been your babe
I've been your slave
Ever since I've been your babe
But before I'll be your dog
I'll see you in your grave

My man wouldn't give me no breakfast
Wouldn't give me no dinner
Squawked about my supper then he put me outdoors
Had the nerve to lay
A matchbox on my clothes
I didn't have so many
But I had a long, long way to go

I ain't good-looking
And my hair ain't curled
I ain't good-looking
And my hair ain't curled
But my mother, she gave me something
It's gonna carry me through this world

Some men love me cause I'm happy
Some cause I'm snappy
Some call me honey
Others think I got money
Some say "Billie
Baby you're built for speed."
If you put that all together
It makes me everything a good man needs
