my lyricsbox
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
