On This Saturday Night..

I have just randomly typed “mostly jazz” in the YouTube search box, then I found a video of Dira Sugandi singing this song that was originally sung by Billie Holiday. Oh, I love the lyrics. Here are the videos of both the Dira’s version and the original version of this song. Both are great, in my opinion. And yes, I am a Jazz listener, though not that fanatic. 🙂  Enjoy!

The Man I Love

Someday he’ll come along, the man I love

And he’ll be big and strong, the man I love

And when he comes my way

I’ll do my best to make him stay

He’ll look at me and smile, I’ll understand

Then in a little while, he’ll take my hand

And though it seems absurd

I know we both won’t say a word

Maybe I shall meet him on Sunday

Maybe Monday, maybe not

Still I’m sure to meet him one day

Maybe Tuesday will be my good news day

He’ll build a little home, that’s meant for two

From which I’ll never roam

Who would, would you?

And so all else above

I’m dreaming of the man I love
