Dorothy Fields. Music by Jimmy Mc. Hugh. Copywright. 1928 VERSE; " I'm so unhappy, left all alone ain't got nobody to love now The man I long for is not strong for me He's not an angel, but I don't care, perhaps a change'll come some day, Whatever he is I want to be his way. CHORUS; " Don't want my mammy, I don't need a friend, my heart is broken, it won't ever mend, I ain't much carin' just where I will end, I must have that man ! I'm like an oven that's cryin' for heat, He treats me awful each time that we meet It's just unlawful how that boy can cheat, But I must have that man ! He's hot as Hades, a la-dy's not safe in his arms when she's kissed But I'm afraid that he's cooled off and maybe I'm ruled off his list, I'll never be missed I need that person much worse n' just bad I'm half alive n' he's drivin' me mad, He's only human, if he's to be had - I must have that man !"
