DOIN' WHAT I PLEASE (Andy Razaf / Fats Waller) Don Redman & His Orch. - 1932 Adelaide Hall - 1932 As recorded by DON REDMAN: I'm staying single Conscience at ease Well, I'm free to mingle I do what I please! When I'm out late nights No one has my keys Yeah, I keep my date nice Doin' what I please You know, I don't have no star boarders Because they keep you on the shelf And I ain't takin' orders So I just go along enjoyin' myself Should I go sailing Cross seven seas No one can stop me Doin' what I please (Instrumental Break) You know I have romances Just like a dog has fleas And I take in all the dances That's because I do what I please I blow in at these parties Just like a reckless breeze I outsmart all these other smarties Because I do just what I please You know, where there's no action You'll find that there's blues about And I get my satisfaction Only when I'm steppin' out And whenever I get tipsy Out at one of these jamborees No one can stop me 'Cause I do what I please ******************** As recorded by ADELAIDE HALL: Since my sweetie proved untrue I see life different now Ain't got nobody with strings on me Where I go and what I do Is my own biz, and how I'm livin' independently And from now on I vow I'm free and single My conscience is at ease I'm free to mingle I'm a-doin' what I please I stay out late nights No one has my keys I keep each date nice Oh, a-doin' what I please Don't have no star boarders 'Cause they keep you on the shelf I ain't takin' orders For I just enjoy myself Should I go sailin' Cross the seven seas Nobody to stop me I'm a-doin' what I please I've had romances Like a dog has fleas I keep each date nice Oh, a-doin' what I please Breeze in at these parties Like a reckless breeze Outsmart the smarties Just a-doin' what I please Where there is no action Why, the blues is all about I ain't takin' orders While I'm just enjoyin' myself Should I get tipsy On a jamboree Nobody to stop me I'm a-doin' what I please (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2016)
