Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man Of Mine

By O. Hammerstein & J. Kern

VERSE:
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 somethin’ that the Angels did plan

The chimney’s smokin’, the roof is leakin’ in
But he don’t seem to care
He can be happy with just a sip of gin
I even love him when his kisses got gin

CHORUS:
Fish got to swim and birds got to fly
I got to love one man ’til 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, that’s a rainy day
And when he comes back that day is fine
The sun will shine

He can come home as late as can be
Home without him ain’t no home to me
Can’t help lovin’ dat man of mine

When he goes away, that’s a rainy day
And when he comes back that day is fine
The sun will shine

He can come home as late as can be
Home without him ain’t no home to me
Can’t help lovin’ dat man of mine
