(Intro Verse:)
The poets say that all who love are blind,
But I'm in love, and I know what time it is.
The good book says, "Go seek and ye shall find."
Well, I have sought, and my, what a climb it is.
My life is like the weather, it changes with the hours;
When he's near, I'm fair and warmer -
When he's gone, I'm cloudy with showers.
In emotion, like the ocean, it's either sink or swim,
When a woman loves a man like I love him.

(Melody:)
Never treats me sweet and gentle the way he should -
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.
But when the weekend's over and Monday rolls around,
I end up like I start out, just cryin' my heart out.

He don't love me like I love him; nobody could -
I've got it bad and that ain't good.

I got it bad and that ain't good.
