Taint nobody’s biz-nes if I do

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.

– Bessie Smith (words and music by Porter Grainger and Everett Robbins)
