"Fine and Mellow" is a jazz standard written by Billie Holiday, who first recorded it on April 20, 1939 on the Commodore label. It is a blues lamenting the bad treatment of a woman at the hands of "my man".

My man don’t love me

Treats me oh so mean

My man he don’t love me

Treats me awfully

Hes the, lowest man

That Ive ever see


He wears high trimmed pan

Stripes are really yellow

He wears high trimmed pan

Stripes are really yellow


But when he starts in to love me

Hes so fine and mellow


Love will make you drink and gamble

Make you stay out all night long repeat

Love will make you drink and gamble

Make you stay out all night long repeat


Love will make you do things

That you know is wrong


But if you treat me right baby

Ill stay home everyday

But if you treat me right baby

Ill stay home everyday


But you’re so mean to me baby

I know you’re gonna drive me away


Love is just like the faucet

It turns off and on

Love is just like the faucet

It turns off and on


Sometimes when you think it’s on baby

It has turned off and gone
