'T'AINT NOBODY'S BUSINESS [BIZNESS] IF I DO Porter Grainger & Everett Robbins 1922 Bessie Smith rec April 26th 1923 New York also- Sara Martin w Fats Waller '22 Alberta Hunter '23 Jimmy Witherspoon '49 Billie Holiday w Buster Harding & his Orch '49 Ella Fitzgerald w Louis Jordan & his Tympany Five '50 Billie Holiday w Count Basie & his Orch '54 Billie Holiday w Chico Hamilton's Quintet '56 Dinah Washington '57 Abbey Lincoln '58 '60 Peggy Lee '88 There ain't nothin' I can do, or nothin' I can say That folks don't criticise me, But I'm going to do just as I want to anyway, And don't care if you all despise me! If I should take a notion To jump into the ocean, 'T'aint nobody's business if I do, do, do! If I go to church on Sunday, Then just shimmy down on Monday, 'T'aint nobody's business if I do, if I do! If my friend ain't got no money, And I say, "Take all mine, honey", 'T'aint nobody's business if I do, do, do do! If I give him my lasy nickel, And it leaves me in a pickle, 'T'aint nobody's business if I do, if I do! There, I'd rather my man was hittin' me, Than to jump right up and quittin' me, 'T'aint nobody's business if I do, do, do do! I swear I won't call no copper If I'm beat up by my papa, 'T'aint nobody's business if I do, if I do! (Contributed by Peter Akers - November 2008)
