Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man
Billie Holiday Lyrics

Oh listen, sister
I love my mister man and I can't tell you why
there ain't no reason why I should love that man
It must be sumpin' dat de angels done plan
De chimbley's smokin'
De roof is leakin' in
But he don't seem to care
He can be happy
With jes' a sip of gin
I even loves him when his kisses got gin

Fish got to swim and birds got to fly
I got to love man till I die
Can't help lovin' that man of mine
Tell me he's lazy
Tell me he's slow
Tell me I'm crazy, maybe, I know
Can't help lovin' that man of mine
When he goes away
that's a rainy day
And when he comes back dat day is fine
The sun will shine
He can come home as late as can be
Home without him ain't no home to me
Can't help lovin' that man of mine

Touched my soul!

Brianna Nelson

She is just brilliant vocally


La magia de su voz que me hace viajar siempre en el tiempo...♫ Mágica Billie!!♥

Mark Conlan

What a record! Listen to anyone else's version and then listen to Billie's. She takes an already beautiful melody and makes it even more beautiful. And the way she sings the final line on just one note shows how much she learned from her idol, Louis Armstrong.

Jim Jackson

That wonderful 13 year old who posted the earlier comment about loving Billie Holiday must be about 21 years old now. Hope s/he still loves (or better yet, plays or sings) jazz!
