Duke Ellington - I Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good) lyrics

The poets say that all who love are blind;
But I'm in love and I know what time it is!
The Good Book says "Go seek and ye shall find."
Well, I have sought and my what a climb it is!
My life is just like the weather
It changes with the hours;
When he's near I'm fair and warmer
When he's gone I'm cloudy with showers;
in emotion, like the ocean it's either sink or swim
When a woman loves a man like I love him.
Never treats me sweet and gentle the way he should;
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 aroun'
I end up like I start out just cryin' my heart out
He don't love me like I love him nobody could
I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good
Like a lonely weeping willow lost in the wood
I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good!
And the things I tell my pillow no woman should
I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good!
Tho folks with good intentions ell 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
I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good..
