G

Who’s the livin‘ daddy with the beautiful eyes?

 

G

What a pair of lips — I’d like to try ‚em for size.

 

C

I’ll just tell him, „Baby, won’t you swing it with me?“

 

G

Hope he tells me „Maybe“ — what a wing it will be.

 

D7

So I said politely, „Darlin‘ may I intrude?“

 

Am7 G Gdim Am7alt D7 G6 D7

He said don’t keep me waitin‘ when I’m in the mood.“

 

 

G F#

First I held him lightly and we started to dance;

 

G

Then I held her tightly — what a dreamy romance!

 

C F#

And I said, „Hey, baby, it’s a quarter to three…

 

G

There’s a mess of moonlight, won’t you share it with me?“

 

D7

„Well,“ he answered, „Baby, don’t you know that it’s rude

 

Am7 G Gdim Am7alt D7 G6 D7

To keep my two lips waitin‘ when they’re in the mood?“

 

 

Interlude:

 

G Gdim Am7 alt Cdim

In the mood — that’s what she told me,

 

G Gdim Am7 alt D

In the mood — and when she told me

 

G Gdim Am7 alt D7sus4

In the mood — my heart was skippin‘;

 

D7 Fdim D7 Gdim D7 G

It didn’t take me long to say, „I’m in the mood now.“

 

G Gdim Am7alt Cdim

In the mood (oh joy) for all her kissin‘,

 

G Gdim Am7alt D

In the mood (oh joy) her crazy lovin‘,

 

G Gdim Am7alt D7sus4

In the mood (oh boy) what I was missin‘ —

 

First Time:

 

D7 Fdim D7 Gdim D7 G

It didn’t take me long to say „I’m in the mood now.“

 

 

Instrumental Break:

Last Time:

It didn’t take me long to say „I’m in the mood now.“
