Ain't Misbehavin'

Lyrics:Andy Razaf
Music:Fats Waller, Harry Brooks

The song was publishe 1929.

Waller recorded the original version that year for Victor Records
and also later performed the song in the 1943 film Stormy Weather.
In a 1941 interview with Eddie "Rochester" Anderson,
Fats claimed the song was written while "lodging" in alimony prison,
and that is why he was not "misbehaving".

There were six other recordings of the song released in 1929,
including versions by Louis Armstrong, Ruth Etting, Gene Austin,
and Leo Reisman and His Orchestra.
It was also used in the off-Broadway musical Connie's Hot Chocolates.

Stormy Weather

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 through 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
