sing4peace Most Scary 'Love' Song Lyric (49) Lyr Add: JIM + MY MAN (Billie Holiday) 20 Sep 09


These two sung by Billie Holiday were pretty disturbing -

JIM by Shawn, Petrillo, Ross and Samuels

Jim doesn't ever bring me pretty flowers
Jim doesn't try to cheer my lonely hours
Don't know why I'm so crazy for Jim.

Jim never tells me I'm his heart's desire
I never seem to set his love afire
Gone are the years I've wasted on him.

Sometimes when I get feelin' low
I saw let's call it quits
Then I hang on and let him go breaking my heart in bits

Someday I know that Jim will up and leave me
But even if he does you can believe me
I'll go on carrying the torch for Jim.

MY MAN - Pollac,Yvain,Willemetz,Charles

It cost me a lot
But there's on thing that I've got
It's my man
It's my man

Cold or wet
Tired, you bet
All of this I'll soon forget
With my man.

He's not much on looks
He's no hero out of books
But I love him
Yes, I love him.

Two or three girls has he
That he likes as well as me
But I love him.

I don't know why I should
He isn't true
He beats me too
What can I do?

Oh, my man, I love him so
He'll never know
All my life is just despair
But I don't care
When he takes me in his arms
The world is bright
All right.

What's the difference if I say I'll go away
When I know I'll come back on my knees someday?
For whatever my man is
I'm his
forevermore.

Yikes!
