IRVING BERLIN lyrics - But I Ain't Got A Man

IRVING BERLIN
"But I Ain't Got A Man"

I got the sun, the moon, the stars, the sky
And things of a personal have I
But I ain't got a man, I ain't got a man

They say I'm blessed with what it takes for guys
And there is a definite gleam in my eyes
What's the good of a gleam in your eyes
When you ain't got a man?

Love
I'm a sitting duck, a wounded quail or grouse
But
What's the good of love without a man around the house?

I got the ground, the dough to build a hut
I've talked to the architect who'll do the job, but
What's the good of a house that is built on a blueprint or plan
When you ain't got a man, when you ain't got a man?
