Just A-Sittin' And A-Rockin'

Just A-Sittin' And A-Rockin'
music by Duke Ellington (left) & Billy Strayhorn (center)
lyric by Lee Gaines (far right in photo upper right)

I don't go out walking, I ain't for no talking;
My baby's done feft me just a-sittin' and a-rockin'.
If I had been scheming, instead of just dreaming,
He'd never have left me just a-sittin' and a-rockin'.

Sittin' all day without holding my baby, makes me so blue and sad.
If he don't hurry and come back, it's a cinch to drive me mad.

If I don't find him, I hope you'll remind him,
That I'm staying where he left me, just a-sittin' and a-rockin' all day.
