I'M DOING WHAT I'M DOING FOR LOVE >From the film "Honky Tonk" (1929) (Music: Milton Ager / Lyrics: Jack Yellen) Sophie Tucker with Ted Shapiro's Orch. (Film Soundtrack) - 1929 Jimmy Noone's Apex Club Orch. - 1929 The Rhythmic Eight - 1929 Herman Kenin's Multinomah Hotel Orch. - 1929 Ray Ventura & His Collegians - 1929 Ray Starita & The Ambassadors Club Band - 1929 Teddy Kline's Orch. (vocal: The Two Jazzers) - 1929 Also recorded by: Libby Holman; Carol Fox Prescott; Joyce Moody. I am one of those the world looks down on I'm not what they think I ought to be Love has made me do things people frown on But love is life and everything to me The world may think I'm wrong But I'll just go along I'm doing what I'm doing for love Who cares what others say I'll be the one who'll pay For doing what I'm doing for love I gave up all I had, but I'm glad I did it for you After years may bring tears But what can I do You cost me home and friends It doesn't matter how it ends I'm doing what I'm doing for love The whole world may think I'm wrong Right or wrong, I'll go along I'm doing what I'm doing for love I don't care what people all around me say I know, I know I'll be the one who'll pay For doing what I'm doing for love I gave up all I had, but I'm glad I say it with pride If the after years bring me tears It's alright, I'm satisfied I've broken man-made laws But Heaven will forgive me because I'm doing what I'm doing for love (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2012)
