Fine And Mellow

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the compilation album The Best Of Ella Fitzgerald (1938) and on the album Bluella - Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Blues (1953).

My man don't love me
Treats me oh, so mean
My man, he don't love me
Treats me awfully
He's the lowest man
That I've ever see

He wears high draped pants
Stripes are really yellow
He wears high draped pants
Stripes are really yellow
But when he starts in to love me
He's so fine and mellow

Love will make you drink and gamble
Make you stay out all night long
Love will make you drink and gamble
Make you stay out all night long
Love will make you do things
That you know is wrong

But if you treat me right, baby
I'll stay home everyday
If you treat me right, baby
I'll stay home everyday
But you're so mean to me, baby
I know you're gonna drive me away

Love is just like the faucet
It turns off and on
Love is just like the faucet
It turns off and on
Sometimes when you think it's on, baby
It has turned off and gone

Love is just like the faucet
It turns off and on
I said, love is like the faucet
It turns off and on
Sometimes when you think it's on, baby
It has turned off and gone
