he’s funny that way lyrics – billie holiday

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

never had nothing
no one to care
that’s why i seem to have
more than my share
i’ve got a man crazy for me
he’s funny that way

when i hurt his feelings
once in a while
his only answer is one little smile
i’ve got a man crazy for 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 better gal
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
