Carmen McRae

Carmen Mercedes McRae (April 8, 1920 – November 10, 1994) was an American jazz singer, composer, pianist, and actress. Considered one of the most influential jazz vocalists of the 20th century, it was her behind-the-beat phrasing and her ironic interpretations of song lyrics that made her memorable. McRae drew inspiration from Billie Holiday, but established her own distinctive voice. She went on to record over 60 albums, enjoying a rich musical career, performing and recording in the United States, Europe, and Japan. more »

And when the fish are jumpin'
And Friday rolls around
My man and me, we gin some
And pray some, and sin some

Never treats me sweet and gentle the way he should
Yeah, I got it bad and that ain't good, that ain't good
My poor heart is sentimental, not made of wood
I've got it bad and that ain't good

But when the weekend's over 
And Monday rolls around
I end up like I start out
just cryin' my heart out
Lord, Lord, above me 
You'd better to make that man love me
The way he should
I've got it bad, so bad and that ain't good
