Oh, listen, sister
I love my mister man
And I can't tell you why
There ain't no reason
Why I should love that man
It must be somethin' that the angels done plan

Fish got to swim, birds got to fly
I got to love one man till I die
Can't help lovin' that man of mine
Tell me he's lazy, tell me he's slow
Tell me I'm crazy (maybe I know)
Can't help lovin' that man of mine
When he goes away, that's a rainy day
But when he comes back, that day is fine
The sun will shine
He can come home as late as can be
Home without him ain't no home to me
Can't help lovin' that man of mine
My man is shiftless
And good for nothin' too
(He's my man just the same)

He's never 'round here
When there is work to do
He's never round here when there's workin' to do
The chimney's smokin'
The roof is leakin' in
But he don't seem to care
He can be happy
With just a sip of gin
Ah, even love him when his kisses got gin
