Ain’t Misbehavin’ – 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 saving my love for you, for you…
Now it’s for certain, the one I love;
I’m through with flirtin’ it’s just you I’m thinkin’ of.
Ain’t misbehavin, I’m saving 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 rad-I-o.
Ain’t misbehavin’, I’m savin’ my love for you.
Busy Line (Semos /Stanton)
as performed by Rose Murphy
I put a nickel in the telephone,
dialed my baby’s number,
Got a brrr-brrr, brrr-brrr busy line.
Each time I tried I gotta busy tone,
not my baby’s number,
Just a brrr-brrr, brrr-brrr busy line.
Called her uncle in Jamaica,
left a message with the baker,
Even checked the number in the telephone book,
I got so awfully, awfully worried,
to my baby’s house I hurried.
When I looked inside, the phone was off the hook.
And as I walked up to my baby, then,
I got my baby’s number:
She was busy in the parlour doing fine.
Busy kissing someone else,
while I was keeping busy,
Gettin’ a brrr-brrr, brrr-brrr busy line.
Evening (Harry White & Mitchell Parish)
Eve – nin’, ev’ry night you come and find me
and you always remind me
that my gal is gone.
Eve – nin’, can’t you see I’m in your power,
Every minute´s like an hour
since my gal has gone.
Shadow’s fall on the wall
That’s the time I miss her most of all
Even though I try, how can I go on?
Eve – nin’, can’t you see my heart is brea – kin’,
Don’t care if I don’t awa – ken,
since my gal is gone.
Eve – nin’ and my gal is gone.
Sweet Georgia Brown (B. Bernie, M. Pinkard and K. Casey)
No gal made, has got a shade on sweet Georgia Brown
Two left feet but oh so neat has sweet Georgia Brown
They all sigh and wanna die for sweet Georgia Brown
I’ll tell you just why, you know I don’t lie, not much
It’s been said she knocks ‘em dead when she lands in town
Since she came, why it’s a shame, how she cools ‘em down
Fellers she can’t get are fellers she ain’t met
Georgia claimed her, Georgia named her
Sweet Georgia Brown.
