In the Mood (1939)
(m) Joe Garland (w) Andy Razaf (I) Glenn Miller No. 1 Chart Record
Who’s the livin’ dolly with the beautiful eyes?
What a pair o’ lips, I’d like to try ’em for size.
I’ll just tell her, “Baby, won’t you swing it with me?”
Hope she tells me maybe, what a wing it will be.
So I said politely, “Darlin’ may I intrude?”
She said, “Don’t keep me waitin’ when I’m in the mood.”
First I held her lightly and we started to dance.
Then I held her tightly, what a dreamy romance.
And I said, “Hey, baby, it’s a quarter to three.
There’s a mess of moonlight won’t-cha share it with me?”
“Well,” she answered, “Mister, don’t-cha know that it’s rude
To keep my two lips waitin’ when they’re in the mood?”

In the mood. That’s what she told me.
In the mood. And when she 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 (Oh joy!) For all her kissin’.
In the mood (Oh joy!) Her crazy lovin’.
In the mood (Oh boy!) What I was missin’
It didn’t take me long to say I’m in the mood now.
