moanin’ low lyrics – billie holiday

ralph rainger / howard dietz

moanin’ low, my sweet man, i love him somoanin’ low, my sweet man, i love him so
though he’s mean as can be
he’s the kind of man needs the kind
of a woman like me

gonna die if my sweet man should p*ss me by
if i die where’ii he be
he’s the kind of a man needs the kind
of a woman like me

don’t know any reason why
he treats me so poorly
what have i gone and done
makes me troubles double with his worries
when surely i ain’t deserving of none

moanin’ low
my sweet man is gonna go
when he goes, oh lordy
he’s the kind of a man needs the kind
of a woman like me
