Billie Holiday - The Man I Love (1940) - intertexto - deep inside

It is always a pleasure to listen to Billie!
Wonderful voice coming straight from the heart...
Let's celebrate Valentine's day!

The man I love (1940) George and Ira Gershwin

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
And in a little while
He'll take my hand
And though it seems absurd
I know we both
Won't say a word

I shall meet him 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
Just meant for two
From which I'd never roam
Who would, would you?
And so all else above
I'm dreaming of
The man I love

deep inside
there is a place
where love exists
a man is in love
a woman is in love
deep inside
and this place
is hard to find
even in Valentine's...
