He's Funny That Way
Billie Holiday Lyrics

I'm not much to look at
Nothing to see
Just glad I'm living
And lucky to be
I've got a man crazy for me
He's funny that way

I can't save a dollar
Ain't worth a cent
He doesn't hollar
He'd live in a tent
I've got that man crazy for me
He's funny that way

Though he loves to work
And slave for me everyday
He'd be so much better off
If I went away
But why should I leave him?
Why should I go?
He'd be unhappy without me, I know
I've got that man mad about me
He's funny that way

I can see no other way
And no better plan
End it all and let him go
To some other girl
But I'm only human
A coward at best
I'm more than certain
He'd follow me West
I've got a man crazy for me
He's funny that way

I like this song . rythm and backing style also are great in old swingy style.I try to sing this song after reminding lyrycs.


This is the only song that Richard A. Whiting is credited with writing the lyrics for. If you like this song you should come to the new Richard A. Whiting Facebook page and give him a like and learn about and enjoy the great composers massive catalog of work which includes "On the Good Ship Lollipop," "Hooray for Hollywood," and "Too Marvelous for Words" among many, many others.
