(Parts for Kay Starr/Tennessee Ernie Ford duet)


STARR:
You got a gal you love on Sunday
Then you get another for Monday
FORD:
Ain't nobody's business but my own

FORD:
You say you're always home alone
How come I can't get you on the phone
STARR:
Well, that ain't nobody's business but my own

BOTH:
Nobody's business
Nobody's business
Nobody's business but my own
Nobody's business
Nobody's business
Nobody's business but my own

STARR:
All night long your playin' poker
Tell me what's the name of that joker
FORD:
Ain't nobody's business but my own

FORD:
I come over, say "Here I am!"
Then I hear the back door slam
STARR:
Well, that ain't nobody's business but my own

BOTH:
Nobody's business
Nobody's business
Nobody's business but my own
Nobody's business
Nobody's business
Nobody's business but my own

(Instrumental Break)

FORD:
You tell me you're in bed by seven
But your light's on past eleven
STARR:
Well, that ain't nobody's business but my own

STARR:
Now you ain't so amart and you ain't good lookin'
How come you got so much cookin'
FORD:
Ain't nobody's business but my own

BOTH:
Nobody's business
Nobody's business
Nobody's business but my own
Nobody's business
Nobody's business
Nobody's business but my own

STARR:
And you wear the prettiest ties and collars
Whereabouts do you get those dollars
FORD:
Ain't nobody's business but my own

FORD:
You always talk about settlin' down
When I bring a ring, you're not around
STARR:
Well, I'll be there the next time that you call

STARR:
Well let's not fuss and let's not fight
FORD:
I'm sick and tired of sayin' "Goodnight"
STARR:
Well, let's make up and hold each other tight

BOTH:
We both know we're birds of a feather
Let's go into business together
We can start a business of our own

Nobody's business
Nobody's business
Nobody's business but our own
Nobody's business
Nobody's business
Nobody's business but our own
