Ain't nobody's business if I do

Song Author Porter Grainger Lyrics by: Everett Robbins Performer: Billie Holiday Submitted by: Anonymous
[Bb]There ain't nothin' [D7]I can do, [Gm]nor nothin' I can [D7]say,   
[G7]That folks don't [Dm7]cri    [G7]ti   [Cm]cize [G7]me.   
[Cm]But I'm gonna [G7]do just as I [Cm]want to any[C]way,
[C7]I don't care if they all des[F#7]pise     [F7]me.   

[Bb]If I should [D7]take a notion
[Gm]To jump in[Eb]to the ocean,
[Bb]It ain't nobody's [F7]business if I [Bb]do.    [G7]    [C7]    [F7]    

[Bb]Rather than [D7]persecute me,
[Gm]I choose that [Eb]you would shoot me,
[Bb]It ain't nobody's [F7]business if I [Bb]do.    [G7]    [C7]    [F7]    

[Bb]If I should [D7]get the feelin'
[Gm]To dance up[Eb]on the ceiling',
[Bb]It ain't nobody's [F7]business if I [Bb]do.    [G7]    [C7]    [F7]    

[Bb]If I let my [D7]best companion
[Gm]Drive me right in[Eb]to the canyon,
[Bb]It ain't nobody's [F7]business if I [Bb]do.    [G7]    [C7]    [F7]    

[Bb]After all the [D7]way to do
[Gm]is do just as you [D7]please,
[G7]Regardless [Dm7]of     [G7]their [Cm]talk   [G7]in'   
[Cm]Often times the [G7]ones that talk
will get [Cm]down on their [C]knees,
[C7]And beg your pardon for their [F#7]squak    [F7]in'.   

[Bb]If I dis[D7]like my lover
[Gm]And leave (him/her) [Eb]for another,
[Bb]It ain't nobody's [F7]business if I [Bb]do.    [G7]    [C7]    [F7]    

[Bb]If I go to [D7]church on Sunday,
[Gm]Then caba[Eb]ret on Monday,
[Bb]It ain't nobody's [F7]business if I [Bb]do.    [G7]    [C7]    [F7]    

[Bb]If my friend ain't [D7]got no money
[Gm]And I say, "Take [Eb]all mine honey,"
[Bb]It ain't nobody's [F7]business if I [Bb]do.    [G7]    [C7]    [F7]    

[Bb]If I lend (him/her) [D7]my last nickel
[Gm]And it leaves me [Eb]in a pickle,
[Bb]It ain't nobody's [F7]business if I [Bb]do.   

There ain't nothin' I can do, nor nothin' I can say,
That folks don't criticize me.
But I'm gonna do just as I want to anyway,
I don't care if they all despise me.

If I should take a notion
To jump into the ocean,
It ain't nobody's business if I do.

Rather than persecute me,
I choose that you would shoot me,
It ain't nobody's business if I do.

If I should get the feelin'
To dance upon the ceiling',
It ain't nobody's business if I do.

If I let my best companion
Drive me right into the canyon,
It ain't nobody's business if I do.

After all the way to do
is do just as you please,
Regardless of their talkin'
Often times the ones that talk
will get down on their knees,
And beg your pardon for their squakin'.

If I dislike my lover
And leave (him/her) for another,
It ain't nobody's business if I do.

If I go to church on Sunday,
Then cabaret on Monday,
It ain't nobody's business if I do.

If my friend ain't got no money
And I say, "Take all mine honey,"
It ain't nobody's business if I do.

If I lend (him/her) my last nickel
And it leaves me in a pickle,
It ain't nobody's business if I do.
