I'M GOING MAD FOR A PAD Joe Greene / Stan Kenton / C Lawrence Stan Kenton & his Orchestra (vocal - Anita O'Day) recorded May 20th 1944 Hollywood also recorded by Eartha Kitt Been knockin' on doors from mornin' till night, No rooms for rent, prospects ain't bright! I'm goin' mad for a pad, Ain't there no room to be had? Why must my feet Have to creep through the street Till they're beat, Till they're bound with defeat? I'm goin' mad for a pad, Ain't there no bed to be had? Don't need no towel, Need no bath, And the paint can be ape, I won't fall in a faint! Unless I can express On a home cooked meal or three, I guess I'm in a mess, Even the city jail Says "Grand, frail frail!". I'm goin' mad for a pad, Ain't there no barns to be had? I'm on a diet of walkin' on and on! Gotta work for a livin', I'm a worn out walkathon! I'm goin' mad for a pad, Ain't there no barns to be had? I'm on a diet of walking on and on! Gotta work for a livin', I'm a worn out walkathon! I'm goin' mad! I'm goin' nuts! I'm goin' balls! I'm goin' nuts, balls! I'm goin' mad, girls! I'm goin' mad for a pad!
