Nailah's Favorite Lyrics Friday!

She's/He's Funny That Way
Words By Richard A. Whiting
Music By Charles N. Daniels
Performed By Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Lester Young, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Gene Austin, and many more.
"She's Funny That Way"

I'm not much to look at, nothing to see
Just I'm glad I'm living, and lucky to be
I got a man that's crazy for me
He's funny that way

I can't save a dollar, ain't worth a cent
He doesn't holler, he'd live in a tent
I've gotta man that's crazy for me
He's funny that way

Though he loves to work and slave, for me every day
He'd be so much better off if I.... I, went away

So why should I leave him?, Why should I go?
He'd be unhappy without me I know
I've gottta man that's crazy for me
He's funny that way

Instrumental 


But, I'm only human
Coward at best 
I'm more than certain he'd follow me west
I got a man that's crazy for me
He's funny that way 
He's funny....
He's funny that...
He's funny that way.... 

Ah, I just love this song. Although, I think Ella Fitzgerald, and Billie Holiday nailed the intensity of this effortless song. Pulchritude!
If you enjoyed this post, you'll also like Romantique song of the month
"He's Funny That Way" changes with each artist. I'm going by Ella Fitzgerald take on this song 

Have A Great & Safe weekend!
Stay Glamours & Scandalous 
Amour Toujours
