I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good
By Duke Ellington

This song moves me like few do and inspired this rendition out of love.
Nat does it best.

Recorded May 21st, 2017



she don't treat me
sweet and gentle
the way she 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 where i start out
just crying
my heart out

she don't love me
like i love her
nobody could

i got it bad and that ain't good
