I Got It Bad (and that ain't good) -- Carmen McRae (1965)


Lyrics by Paul Webster; music by Duke Ellington.

 
 
 




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 when the weekend's over and Monday rolls around
I end up like I start out, just cryin' my heart out
Doesn't love me like I love him, no, nobody could
I got it bad and that ain't good

Like a lonely weepin' willow who's lost in the wood
I got it bad and that ain't good
And the things I tell my pillow, nobody should
I got it bad, I got it bad and it's no good

Though folks with good intentions, they tell me to save up my tears
I'm glad I'm mad about him, I can't live without him
Lord above, make him love me the way that he should
I got it bad and that ain't good

I got it bad and that ain't good
No good, no good
No good, no good
