Bad News

If what a woman really wants in her hand
Is treasure she can't get from her man
He can tolerate that kind of blues
So long as courtship to grave
He knows he'll always be saved
By a girl who can take bad news, Sweetness, Sweetness
A girl who can take bad news

And if what really shakes her tambourine
Is some stout lad in a girl's magazine
A man can tolerate that kind of blues
If he goes through his life
With the prize of a wife
That's a girl who can take bad news

By steps and stumbles we've made our way
By every means two lovers could choose
Over every mile you've held your sway
By the way that you take bad news

And when she hears him shuffle in with a sigh
And that hangdog look in his eye
She can tolerate that kind of blues
She always can read
And know his every need
A girl who can take bad news, Sweetness, Sweetness
A girl who can take bad news, Sweetness, Sweetness
News
