Some day he'll come along
The man I love
And he'll be big and strong
The man I love

And when he comes my way
I'll do my best to make him stay
He'll look at me and smile
I'll understand

And in a little while
He'll take my hand
And though it seems absurd
I know we both won't say a word

Maybe I shall meet him Sunday
Maybe Monday, maybe not
Still I'm sure to meet him one day
Maybe Tuesday will be my good-news day

He'll build a little home
Just meant for two
From which I'll never roam,
Who would - would you?

And so all else above
I'm waiting for the man I love...

- Ira & George Gershwin - The Man I Love (1924)
