Who's the livin' daddy with the beautiful eyes?
What a pair of lips - I'd like to try 'em for size.
I'll just tell him, "Baby, won't you swing it with me?"
Hope he tells me "Maybe" - what a wing it will be.
So I said politely, "Darlin' may I intrude?"
He said don't keep me waitin' when I'm in the mood."

First I held him lightly and we started to dance;
Then I held her tightly - what a dreamy romance!
And I said, "Hey, baby, it's a quarter to three...
There's a mess of moonlight, won't you share it with me?"
"Well," he answered, "Baby, don't you know that it's rude
To keep my two lips waitin' when they're in the mood?"


In the mood - that's what she told me,
In the mood - and when she told me
In the mood - my heart was skippin';
It didn't take me long to say, "I'm in the mood now."
In the mood (oh joy) for all her kissin',
In the mood (oh joy) her crazy lovin',
In the mood (oh boy) what I was missin' -
It didn't take me long to say "I'm in the mood now."
