I Got It Bad And That Ain’t Good

Writer(s): Paul Francis Webster / Duke Ellington
(from the CD Swinging Affair)

Though folks with good intentions, tell me to save my tears
Well I’m so mad about him, I can’t live without him
Never treats me sweet and gentle the way he should
I’ve got it bad and that ain’t good.
My poor heart is sentimental, not made of wood
I’ve got it bad and that ain’t good.
And when the weekend’s over, and Monday rolls around
I end up like I start out, just crying my heart out
He don’t love me like I love him, no, nobody could
I’ve got it bad and that ain’t good
Lord above me, make him love me, the way he should
I got it bad and that ain’t good
