Billie Holiday – Moanin' Low lyrics
Ralph Rainger / Howard Dietz

Moanin' low, my sweet man, I love him so
Though he's mean as can be
He's the kind of man needs the kind
Of a woman like me

Gonna die if my sweet man should pass me by
If I die where'ii he be
He's the kind of a man needs the kind
Of a woman like me

Don't know any reason why
He treats me so poorly
What have I gone and done
Makes me troubles double with his worries
When surely I ain't deserving of none

Moanin' low
My sweet man is gonna go
When he goes, oh Lordy
He's the kind of a man needs the kind
Of a woman like meMoanin' low, my sweet man, I love him so
Though he's mean as can be
He's the kind of man needs the kind
Of a woman like me

Gonna die if my sweet man should pass me by
If I die where'ii he be
He's the kind of a man needs the kind
Of a woman like me

Don't know any reason why
He treats me so poorly
What have I gone and done
Makes me troubles double with his worries
When surely I ain't deserving of none

Moanin' low
My sweet man is gonna go
When he goes, oh Lordy
He's the kind of a man needs the kind
Of a woman like me
