There, I’d rather my man was hittin’ me
Than to jump right up and quittin’ me
‘T’ain’t nobody’s business if I do, do, do do! I swear I won’t call no copper
If I’m beat up by my papa
‘T’ain’t nobody’s business if I do, if I do! There ain’t nothin’ I can do, or nothin’ I can say
That folks don’t criticise me
But I’m going to do just as I want to anyway
And don’t care if you all despise me! If I give him my lasy nickel
And it leaves me in a pickle
‘T’ain’t nobody’s business if I do, if I do! If my friend ain’t got no money
And I say, "Take all mine, honey"
‘T’ain’t nobody’s business if I do, do, do do! If I go to church on Sunday
Then just shimmy down on Monday
‘T’ain’t nobody’s business if I do, if I do! If I should take a notion
To jump into the ocean
‘T’ain’t nobody’s business if I do, do, do!
