About She’s Funny That Way
This charming song is sung from the point of view of the young lover who is kind of amazed that the woman he loves seems to love him, in spite of his faults.

Lyrics

I’m not much to look at
nothing to see
I’m just glad I’m living
and lucky to be
I’ve got a woman who’s crazy ‘bout me
She’s funny that way

I can’t save a dollar
I ain’t worth a cent
She doesn’t holler
She’d live in a tent
I’ve got that woman crazy ‘bout me
She’s funny that way

Though she loves to work
And slave for me everyday
She’d be so much better off
If I went away
But why should I leave her?
Why should I go?
She’d be unhappy without me I know
I’ve got a woman who’s crazy ‘bout me
She’s funny that way
