Holiday, Billie - Ain't Nobody's Business If I Do Lyrics




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 just what people say

If I should take a notion, to jump into the ocean
Ain't nobody's business if I do
If I go to church on Sunday, then cabaret all day Monday
Ain't nobody's business if I do

If my man ain't got no money and I say, "Take all of mine, honey"
Ain't nobody's business if I do
If I give him my last nickel and it leaves me in a pickle
Ain't nobody's business if I do

Well, I'd rather my man would hit me
Than follow him to jump up and quit me
Ain't nobody's business if I do
I swear I won't call no copper, if I'm beat up by my papa
Ain't nobody's business if I do, nobody's business
Ain't nobody's business, nobody's business if I do

    When I was in college living in the dorms we had a "college channel" on TV (I guess that's what you'd call it) that played not only silly things or info about the school, but that also played a rotation of very good but lesser known films. Lady Sings the Blues was one of them and I couldn't get over this song. "If I were to take the notion, to jump right into the ocean, ain't nobody's business if I do..."

  6. Almas Daughter

    This band is smokin’—who are they? Just superb.

  7. jamie peppard

    Ain't Nobody's Business.....

  8. pennydink72

    What is up with these speak easy and early blues singers being cool with their man's hitting on them. That shit crazy even though I love her voice but its weird to hear that.

    Mark James

    Even today there are a lot of women who accept abuse. Ms. Holiday was abused as a child, growing up in and out of institutions, and even forced to work as a prostitute along side her mother, so abuse seemed normal in her world. That's all she ever knew. Her use of drugs and alcohol was her attempt to dull the pain. It's a sad story, but the pain is what made her such a great artist. Peace

  9. Maverick 260

    The lyrics are so Profound

  10. fab 59

    love her

  11. _chary

    one of the best songs ever written and sung, there is so much laden in her voice and the words. so simple, but speaks such complicated emotions

  12. Philip Vigil II

    Lady Day did it her way til the end and it weren't nobody's business if she did.

  13. Maizey B

    I feel like I’m eating at Olive Garden

  14. James Newman

    "I Wont Call No Coppa, If I'm Beat Up by my Papa" 🎶🎶😂😂

    Tara Lees

    Dark Prophit

  15. QT Allen Andrews

    Wow what a difference between the 2 versions of this...nice compared to just 2 years later 51 version is hard to listen to.

  17. Orfeo Baldomar

    There ain't nothin' I can do, or nothin' I can say
    That folks don't criticise me,
    But I'm going to do just as I want to anyway,
    And don't care if you all despise me!
    If I should take a notion
    To jump into the ocean,
    'T'aint nobody's business if I do, do, do!
    If I go to church on Sunday,
    Then just shimmy down on Monday,
    'T'aint nobody's business if I do, if I do!
    If my friend ain't got no money,
    And I say, "Take all mine, honey",
    'T'aint nobody's business if I do, do, do do!
    If I give him my lasy nickel,
    And it leaves me in a pickle,
    'T'aint nobody's business if I do, if I do!
    There, I'd rather my man was hittin' me,
    Than to jump right up and quittin' me,
    'T'aint nobody's business if I do, do, do do!
    I swear I won't call no copper
    If I'm beat up by my papa,
    'T'aint nobody's business if I do, if I do!

    My best childhood memories are of this song. My grandmother would teach me to cook in the kitchen with every Billie holiday song playing in the background. I always replayed this one most.

    Tara Lees

    Such a beautiful groove w strength then in true Billie style actual truth...abuse, confusion. Always one to make a statement. BA

    I just got reunited with Ms Holiday thanks to Audra McDoald singing as her in one of her last performances. I love this sing so much which is the only reason I checked out Ms NcDonald as her!
