the man i love lyrics – billie holiday

some day 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,
and in a little while he’ll take my hand
and, though it seem absurd,
i know we both won’t say, we 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…

we’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.

maybe i shall meet him on sunday,
maybe monday maybe not…

still i’m sure to meet him one day,
maybe tuesday will be my good news day.

we’ll build a little home just meant for two,
from which i’ll never, ever roam,
who would, would you?
and so all else above i’m waiting for…
the man…
i…
love!
