Nobody's Business
(Porter Grainger and Everett Robbins)

There ain't nothin' I can do nor nothin' I can say
That folks don't criticize me;
But I'm gonna do just as I want to anyway
I don't care if they all despise me.

cho: If I should take a notion
     To jump into the ocean
     'Tain't nobody's bizness if I do
     Rather than persecute me
     I choose that you would shoot me
     'Tain't nobody's bizness if I do
     If I should get the feelin
     To dance upon the ceilin'
     'Tain't nobody's bizness if I do
     If I let my best companion
     Drive me right into the canyon
     'Tain't nobody's bizness if I do

After all the way to do is do just as you please
Regardless of their talkin'
Oftentimes the ones that talk will get down on their knees
And beg your pardon for their squawkin'

     If I dislike my lover
     And leave him for another
     'Tain't nobody's bizness if I do
     If I go to church on Sunday
     Then cabaret on Monday
     'Tain't nobody's bizness if I do
     If my friend ain't got no money
     And I say "Take all mine, honey".
     'Tain't nobody's bizness if I do
     If I give him my last nickle
     And it leaves me in a pickle
     'Tain't nobody's bizness if I do

I got up this morning, looked out my window pane,
I was looking for my love, but all I saw was rain.
Rain, rain, rain, why don't you go away,
'Cause I've got enough trouble, to last me all this day.

     One day we've got ham and bacon,
     Next day ain't nothin' shakin',
     'Tain't nobody's bizness if we do
     If me and my baby fuss and fight,
     And the next minute we're all right,
     'Tain't nobody's bizness if we do
     Well,  I'm three times seven,
     And that makes almost twenty-two,
     'Tain't nobody's bizness if I do
     Well, if I stay out all night,
     Spend my money, that's all right,
    'Tain't nobody's bizness if I do
