The Man I Love
Billie Holiday Lyrics


Someday he'll come along
The man I love
And he'll be big and strong
The man I love
And when he comes my way
I'll do my best to make him stay

He'll look at me and smile
I'll understand
Then in a little while
He'll take my hand
And though it seems absurd
I know we both won't say a word

Maybe I shall meet him Sunday
Maybe Monday, maybe not
Still I'm sure to meet him one day
Maybe Tuesday will be my good news day

He'll build a little home
That's meant for two
From which I'll never roam
Who would, would you
And so all else above
I'm dreaming of the man I love

Maybe I shall meet him Sunday
Maybe Monday, maybe not
Still I'm sure to meet him one day
Maybe Tuesday will be my good news day

He'll build a little home
Just meant for two
From which I'll never roam
Who would, would you
And so all else above
I'm dreaming of the man I love

Maybe Monday, maybe not
Still I'm sure to meet him one day
Maybe Tuesday will be my good news day

He'll build a little home
Just meant for two
From which I'll never roam
Who would, would you
And so, all else above
I'm waiting for the man I love

He'll build a little home
Just meant for two
From which I'll never roam
Who would, would you
And so, all else above
I'm waiting for the man I love

And when he comes my way
I'll do my best to make him stay
He'll look at me and smile
I'll understand

He'll build a little home
That's meant for two
From which I'll never roam
Who would, would you
And so all else above
I'm dreaming of the man I love

I remember the day i met Billie Holiday. We had a great time and she gave me a framed picture. I still have it. What a beautiful lady.

Lester's solo is perfectly set off by the simple backing . Something modern jazz musicians could learn from . Sometimes less really is more .

Billie Holiday, her strongly emotion, sadness through all of bones of us, this doesn't only for black people, all of races can able to feel the sadness of da ages, all the discrimination.I'm a chinese, but I can feel it!❤❤😭😭

@Ian Kensington Lol you're welcome, stranger! No, but seriously, words are hurtful (especially ignorant ones such as racist remarks) but you sometimes have to think about the person that they're coming from and if they even mean anything to you (the racist comments.) Racist remarks from someone that hasn't bathed in a year or more and that takes craps on sidewalks don't mean anything because they are in no position to be discriminating anyone. Hell, even if you hear remarks like that from a billionaire it doesn't mean anything because so many billionaires get where they are not by being honest, but by doing some truly horrible stuff. That's what I always keep in mind when i hear racist remarks!

Ian Kensington

@Allison Chains I should use that for my stand up act next time. Thank you stranger on the internet.

Allison Chains

@Ian Kensington Did you laugh at him? because I would have. Sure, that may be wrong, but a homeless man telling me to go back to Mexico is not an insult, it's comedy lol.

Ian Kensington

sucker Dick An old homeless white man told me and my family to go back to Mexico once. Other than that, I haven’t really come face-to-face with racism.

@Happy Levi23 I'm a seasoned Jazz historian you can take it or let it alone.
The blues that emanated from chattel slavery gave birth to Black classical music mislabeled Jazz. Billie was given the title "The First Lady of Jazz."
You can take it or let it alone.
