Ain't Misbehavin‍ '

Lyrics:Andy Razaf
Music:Thomas "Fats" Waller ,Harry Brooks

The song was publishe 1929.

The song was first performed at the premiere of Connie's Hot Chocolates
at Connie's Inn in Harlem as an opening number by Margaret Simms
and Paul Bass, and repeated later in the musical by Russell Wooding's Hallelujah Singers.
Connie's Hot Chocolates transferred to the Hudson Theatre on Broadway in June 1929,
where it was renamed to Hot Chocolates
and where Louis Armstrong took over as orchestra director.
The script also required Armstrong to play Ain't Misbehavin‍ 'in a trumpet solo,
and although this was initially slated to only be a reprise of the opening song,
Armstrong's performance was so well received that the trumpeter
was asked to climb out of the orchestra pit and play the piece on stage.

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
