Verse

There ain't nothin' I can do or nothin' 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 if they all despise me


Refrain

If I should take a notion to jump into the ocean 'taint nobody's biz-ness if I do, do, do, do.

If I go to church on Sunday, then just shimmy down on monday, 'Taint nobody's biz-nes if I do if I do.

If my friend ain't got no money and I say take all mine, honey, 'Taint nobody's biz-ness if I do, do, do, do.

If I give him my last nickel and it leaves me in a pickle, 'Taint nobody's biz-ness if I do, if I do.

Well, I'd rather my man would hit me than to jump right up and quit me.

'Taint nobody's biz-ness if I do, do, do, do.

I swear I won't call no copper if I'm beat up by my papa.

'Taint nobody's biz-ness if I do, if I do.
