Never treats me sweet and gentle
The way he should
'Cause I got it bad, and that ain't good
My poor heart is sentimental
Not made of wood
I got it bad, and that ain't good

Like I love him
Nobody could

Now folks with good intentions
Tell me to save my tears
I'm glad I'm mad about him
I can't live without him
Lord above me
Make him love me
The way he should
Like a lonesome weeping willow
Lost in the wood
The way I hug my pillow
No woman should
Because I got it bad, and that ain't good
