In The Mood

In The Mood
music by Joe Garland
lyric by Andy Razaf (left)

Who's the lovin' daddy with the beautiful eyes?
What a pair o' 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 him 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'-cha know that it's rude
To keep my two lips waitin' when they're in the mood!"

In the mood, that's what he told me.
In the mood, and when he 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, for all his kissin'.
In the mood for his crazy lovin'.
In the mood was what I was missin',
It didn't take me long to say, "I'm in the mood now!"
