Ain't Nobody's Business

Lyrics ,Music:Porter Grainger, Everett Robbins

The song was publishe 1922.

The song features a lyrical theme of freedom of choice
and a vaudeville jazz-style musical arrangement.

As "'Tain't Nobody's Biz-ness if I Do", it was first recorded in 1922
by Anna Meyers with the Original Memphis Five.

Recordings by other classic female blues singers,
including Sara Martin, Alberta Hunter, and Bessie Smith soon followed.

There ain't nothing I can do
Or nothing I can say
That folks don't criticize me

But I'm going to do
Just as I want to anyway
And don't care just what people say

If I should take a notion
To jump into the ocean
Ain't nobody's business if I do

If I go to church on Sunday
Then cabaret all day Monday
Ain't nobody's business if I do

If my man ain't got no money
And I say "Take all of mine, honey"
Ain't nobody's business if I do

If I give him my last nickel
And it leaves me in a pickle
Ain't nobody's business if I do

Well, I'd rather my man would hit me
Than follow him to jump up and quit me
Ain't nobody's business if I do

I swear, I won't call no copper
If I'm beat up by my papa
Ain't nobody's business if I do

Nobody's business
Ain't nobody's business
Nobody's business if I do
