I'M ALWAYS IN THE MOOD FOR YOU
as rec by Thomas "Fats" Waller & his Rhythm
Sep 7th 1937 New York
I may not be in the mood for a movie
Or a stroll on the avenue;
I may not be in the mood for a lot of things,
But I'm always in the mood for you!
Don't need a sky full of stars above me,
Or a silvery moon in view;
Don't need a bench in a park to ignite the spark,
'Cause I'm always in the mood for you!
Oh, no-one else seems to interest me,
Lawdy, ain't it strange!
That very very mention of your name,
How the feelin' does change!
Somehow the time and place doesn't matter,
Any time, any place will do!
Don't need a beautiful thing, beautiful song,
Beautiful romance to help me along, no baby!
All I need is you!
I'm in the mood for you, yes!
