    "I Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good)" Lyrics

    Ella Fitzgerald feat. Billie Holiday and Dinah Washington

    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 wth the hours
    When he's near I'm fair and warmer
    When he's gone I'm cloudy with showers

    And motion 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 whne the weekend's over
    I end up like I started out

    Just cryin' my lil' heart out
    He don't love me
    Like I love I'm
    No, nobody could

    I got it bad and that ain't good
    So bad, so bad
    I got it bad, so bad
    Though folks with good intentions

    Tell me to save my tears
    I'm glad
    I'm mad about you
    Lord above me

    Make him love me
    The way he should
    Like a lonely weeping willow lost in the wood
    The things I tell my pillow

    No woman should
    I got it bad, and that ain't good
