The Man I Love

    (George Gershwin - Ira Gershwin, from Lady Be Good)

Transcribed from Sam Lanin's Famous Players; vocals by "George Beaver"; recorded 12/9/1927.
From: Can't Help Lovin' That Man; Art Deco Columbia Legacy CK 52855.

Some day 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!

We'll build a little home
Just meant for two,
From which I'll never roam;
Who would? Would you?
And so, all else above,
I'm waiting for the man I love!
