Monday Music Quote: Billie Holiday


"You can't copy anybody and end with anything. If you copy, it means you're working without any real feeling."
Billie Holiday  



Billie Holiday - Ain't Misbehavin' (1955)



Are you a Billie Holiday fan? "Ain't Misbehavin'" is a 1929 song written by Thomas "Fats" Waller.

E7         C#m7    F#m7      B7
No one to talk to, all by myself;

E7         Ab7            A7   Am     Am7
No one to walk with, I'm happy on the shelf;

E7         C#m7   F#m7           B7          E    C#m7   F#7    B7
Ain't misbehavin,     I'm saving my love for you.


E7           C#m7     F#m7           B7
Now it's for certain,     the one I love;

E7                Ab7           A7           Am      Am7
I'm through with flirtin' it's just you I'm thinkin' of.

E7        C#m7  F#m7            B7          E    A7   B7   Ab7
Ain't misbehavin,   I'm saving my love for you.


Bridge:

C#m7                 A7
    Like Jack Horner,   in the corner,

F#7                       C#7
    Don't go no where -- what do I care?

F#7         C#m7      F#7     B7       C   B7
Your kisses are worth waiting for, believe me.


E7            C#m7      F#m7         B7
I don't stay out late, don't care to go;

E7         Ab7             A7        Am   Am7
I'm home about eight, just me and my rad-I-o.

E7         C#m7    F#m7          B7           E   A   Am7   E   B7   E6
Ain't misbehavin',    I'm savin' my love for you.
