your rack with your lady on Monday Ain't nobody's dirty business but your own Frankly I don't care what in the world you do Long as you do what you really wanta do, baby Ain't nobody's business but your own 'Cos I know some of you cuties, you real good-lookin' cuties You gonna step in my town, just to hang around Standin' on the corner so the fellas will say "Hey, baby, ahh yeahhhhhhh" Champagne don't make me crazy Cocaine don't make me lazy Ain't nobody's business but my own You know candy is dandy and liquor is quicker You can drink all the liquor down in Costa Rica Baby, ain't nobody's business but my own You can ride around San Francisco in your birthday suit I can catch ya comin out of the Bank of America with a whole lotta loot Ain't nobody's business but your own They say cocaine's for horses, now it ain't for men The doctor said it'll kill me, but he didn't say when Ain't nobody's business but my own (Scat Singing) You know, Champagne don't drive me crazy Cocaine don't make me lazy Ain't nobody's business but my own You know candy is dandy and liquor is quicker You can drink all the liquor down in Costa Rica Ain't nobody's business but my own Honey, you know that Champagne don't drive me crazy Cocaine don't make me lazy Ain't nobody's business but my own (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2011)
