Billie Holiday (born Eleanora Harris April 7, 1915 – July 17, 1959) was an American jazz singer and songwriter. Nicknamed "Lady Day" by her friend and musical partner Lester Young, Holiday had a seminal influence on jazz and pop singing.

Girls were made to take care of boys
To be kind and dutiful
Hmm
Girls were made to take care of boys
Made to share their sorrows
Made to share their joys
Made to help and guide them
With ever a patient hand

Made to give affection
In the right direction
(Always understand)

Now boys may think they take care of girls
Just because they pass on their fashions and their curls
But I've always found
It's just the other way around
(Other way around)

If you need the girl
And declare you do
(Tell her that you need her)
She'll be there
To take care of you
(She'll be there)
(Now boys may think they take care of girls)
(Just because they're clever with their fashions and their curls)
But I've always found
It's just the other way around

And if you need the girl
And declare you do
She'll be there
To take care of you
