Ain’t Misbehavin’

Words and Music by Brooks, Razaf, and Waller

No one to talk with, all by myself,
No one to walk with, but I’m happy on the shelf.
Ain’t misbehavin’, I’m savin’ my love for you.

I know for certain the one I love
I’m thru with flirtin’, it’s just you I’m thinkin’ of,
Ain’t misbehavin’, I’m savin’ my love for you.

Like Jack Horner in the corner,
Don’t go nowhere, what do I care,
Your kisses are worth waitin’ for, believe me

I don’t stay out late, don’t care to go
I’m home about eight, just me and my radio
Ain’t misbehavin’, I’m savin’ my love for you.
