Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the compilation album Souvenir Album (1947) and on the album Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Jerome Kern Songbook (1963).

Oh listen, sister
I love my mister man
And I can't tell you why
There ain't no reason
Why I should love dat man
It must be sumpin' dat de angels did plan

De chimney's smokin'
De roof is leakin' in
But he don't seem to care
He can be happy
Wid just a sip of gin
Ah even love him when his kisses got gin

Fish got to swim, birds got to fly
I got to love one man till I die
Can't help lovin' dat man of mine

Tell me he's lazy, tell me he's slow
Tell me I'm crazy, maybe I know
Can't help lovin' dat man of mine

When he goes away
Dat's a rainy day
And when he comes back dat day is fine
De sun will shine

He can come home as late as can be
Home widout him ain't no home to me
Can't help lovin' dat man of mine
