Lyrics

Ain't Misbehavin'

Written By: Fats Waller

No one to talk with
All by myself
No one to walk with
But I'm happy on the shelf
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you
I know for certain
The one I love
I'm through with flirtin'
It's just you I'm thinkin' of
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' all my love for you

Like Jack Horner
In the corner
Don't go nowhere
What do I care?
Your kisses are worth waitin' for
Believe me

I don't stay out late
Don't care to go
I'm home about eight
Just me and my radio
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' all my love for you

Like Jack Horner
In the corner
Don't go nowhere
What do I care?
Your kisses are worth waitin' for
Believe me

I don't stay out late
Don't care to go
I'm home about eight
Just me and my radio
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' all my love for you
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm Savin' all my love for you

Body and Soul

Written By: Edward Heyman, Robert Sour, Frank Eyton, Johnny Green

My heart is sad and lonely
For you I sigh, for you dear only
Why haven't you seen it ?
I'm all for you body and soul

I spend my days in longing
And wondering why it's me you're wronging?
I tell you I mean it
I'm all for you body and soul

I can't believe it
It's hard to conceive it
That you turn away romance
Are you pretending
It looks like the ending
And less I could have one more chance to prove, dear

My life a wreck you're making
You know I'm yours for just the taking
I'd gladly surrender myself to you body and soul

My life a hell you're making
You know I'm yours for just the taking
I'd gladly surrender myself to you body and soul

Blues in the Night

Written By: Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer

My mama done told me
When I was in pig tails
My mama done told me
Child, some man's gonna sweet talk
And give you the big eye, uh-huh
But when the sweet talk is done
A man is a two face
A worrisome thing
Who'll leave you to sing
The blues in the night

Now you know that rain is fallin'
Hear that train a-callin'
Whoo-eee
Oooo that lonesome whistle
Calling cross the trestle
A-whoo-eee
A whoo-ee-duh-whoo-ee
Uh-huh clickety clack a-echoin' back The blues in the night

My mama done told me
When I was in knee pants
My mama done told me
Child, a man's gonna sweet talk
And give you the big eye, uh-huh
But when that sweet talk is done
A man is a two-face
A worrisome thing
To leave you to sing
The blues in the night

Now you know that rain is fallin'
Hear that train a-callin'
Whoo-eee
Oooo that lonesome whistle
Calling cross the trestle
A-whoo-eee
A whoo-ee-duh-whoo-ee
Uh-huh clickety clack a-echoin' back The blues in the night
