I Got it Bad (And That Ain't Good)

Album: Jump for Joy (1941)
  • Never treats me sweet and gentle
    The way he should
    'Cause I got it bad, and that ain't good
    My poor heart is sentimental
    Not made of wood
    I got it bad, and that ain't good
    But when the weekend's over
    And Monday rolls around
    My man and me
    We pray some
    We gin some
    And sin some
    He don't love me
    Like I love him
    Nobody could
    I got it bad, and that ain't good
    Now folks with good intentions
    Tell me to save my tears
    I'm glad I'm mad about him
    I can't live without him
    Lord above me
    Make him love me
    The way he should
    Like a lonesome weeping willow
    Lost in the wood
    The way I hug my pillow
    No woman should
    Because I got it bad, and that ain't good Writer/s: DUKE ELLINGTON, PAUL WEBSTER
