"I MUST HAVE THAT MAN"  Lyrics. Dorothy Fields.  Music by Jimmy Mc. Hugh. Copywright. 1928
VERSE; " I'm so unhappy, left all alone ain't got nobody to love now

The man I long for is not strong for me

He's not an angel, but I don't care, perhaps a change'll come some day,

Whatever he is I want to be his way.
CHORUS; " Don't want my mammy, I don't need a friend, my heart is broken, it won't ever mend,

I ain't much carin' just where I will end, I must have that man !

I'm like an oven that's cryin' for heat, He treats me awful each time that we meet

It's just unlawful how that boy can cheat, But I must have that man !   He's hot as
Hades, a la-dy's not safe in his arms when she's kissed

But I'm afraid that he's cooled off and maybe I'm ruled off  his list, I'll never be missed
I need that person much worse n' just bad I'm half alive n' he's drivin' me mad,

He's only human, if he's to be had - I must have that man !"
