I know I should go out Be seen here and there But my friends have found out My baby don't care I don't go out walkin' I ain't for no talkin' My baby's done left me Just a-sittin' and a-rockin' If I had been schemin' Instead of just dreamin' He'd never have left me Just a-sittin' and a-rockin' Sittin' all day without holdin' my baby Makes me so blue and sad If he don't hurry and come back It's a cinch to drive me mad Now if I don't find him I hope you'll remind him That I'm stayin' where he left me Just a-sittin' and a-rockin' all day (Transcribed from Toni Harper's recording by Mel Priddle - July 2005) ****** As recorded by Ella Fitzgerald: I don't go out walking I ain't for no talking My baby's done left me Just a-sittin' and a-rockin' If I had been scheming Instead of just dreaming He'd never have left me Just a-sittin' and a-rockin' Sittin all day without holding my baby Makes me so blue and sad If he don't hurry and come back It's a cinch to drive me mad Now if I don't find him I hope you'll remind him That I'm staying where he left me Just a-sittin' and a-rockin' All day Don't go out a walking And I for no talking My baby's done left me Just a-sittin' and a-rockin' All day If I had been scheming Instead of just dreaming He'd never have left me Just a-sittin' and a-rockin' Sittin all day without holding my baby I miss my lonely papa If he don't hurry and come back It's a cinch to, I'll blow my toppa Now if I don't find him I hope you'll remind him That I'm staying where he left me Just a sittin' and a rockin' Rockin' and a-sittin' Sittin' and a-rockin' All day ******
