Renee Olstead Lover Man

Текст песни

"Lover Man (Oh, Where Can You Be?)" (often called simply "Lover Man") is a 1941 popular song written by Jimmy Davis, Roger ("Ram") Ramirez, and James Sherman. It is particularly associated with Billie Holiday, for whom it was written, and her version was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1989.
Holiday's version reached #5 on the R&B chart and #16 on pop in 1945. Charlie Parker did a rendition of "Lover Man", considered by many to be one of his most passionate recordings, during which he was horribly intoxicated. Parker himself considered it one of his most shameful moments.[citation needed] Barbra Streisand recorded "Lover Man" for her 1967 album, Simply Streisand, with an arrangement by David Shire.
She also sang the song live during her 1994 concert tour.

-----------------------------------------------

Don't know why but I'm feeling so sad
I long to try something that I've never had
I've never had no kissin', oh, what I've been missin'
Lover man, oh, where can you be?

Oh, the night is so cold and I'm so all alone
I'd give my soul just to call you my own
Got a moon above me, oh, nobody to love me
Lover man, where can you be?

I've heard it said that the thrill of romance
Can be like a heavenly dream
I go to bed with a prayer
You'll make love to me

Strange as it seems
Someday, someday we'll meet
You'll dry all my tears and you'll whisper
Sweet little things in my ear

Hugging and kissing
Oh, what I've been missing
Lover man, where can you be?

I've heard it said that the thrill of romance
Can be like a heavenly dream
I go to bed with a prayer
That you'll make love to me

Strange as it seems
Someday we'll meet
And you'll dry all my tears then you'll whisper
Sweet little things in my ear

Oh, hugging and kissing
Ohh, what I've been missing
Lover man, oh, where can you be?

Lover man, oh lover man, where can you be?
Lover man, lover man, where can you be?
