T’ain’t Nobody’s Business If I Do

By P. Grainger, E. Robbins, R. Maltby, Jr. & M. Horwitz

If I should take a notion
To jump into the ocean
Ain’t nobody’s business if I do

If I go to church on Sunday
Then cabaret all day Monday
Ain’t nobody’s business if I do

If my man ain’t got no money
And I say “Take all of mine, honey”
Ain’t nobody’s business if I do

If I give him my last nickel
And it leaves me in a pickle
Ain’t nobody’s business if I do

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
And don’t care if they all despise me

If I work and come home draggin’
Then stay up all night raggin’
T’ain’t nobody’s business if I do

If I eat three turkey dinners
And announce “that’s just beginners”
T’ain’t nobody’s business if I do

If I date a real style setter
But go home with someone better
T’ain’t nobody’s business if I do

If I feed my wife bologna
And don’t pay my alimony
T’ain’t nobody’s business if I do

If I ball and dress up sporty, live to die before I’m forty
T’ain’t yo biz-ness, t’ain’t my biz-ness, t’ain’t her biz-ness, t’ain’t their biz-ness
T’ain’t nobody’s biz-ness if I do
