The Man I Love

Album: Glory of Gershwin (1994)
Charted: 27
  • 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
    And 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
    Just meant for two
    From which I'd never roam
    Who would, would you?

    And so all else above
    I'm waiting for 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'd never roam
    Who would, would you?

    And so all else above
    I'm waiting for the man I love

  • Woody from New York, NcKate gives the song a great contemporary spin. I loved the harmonica, an unexpected addition. Good version of the classic.
