In The Mood Lyrics

Artist: Glenn Miller
Album: In The Mood

In the Mood
Glenn Miller (#1 in 1940)
- words by Andy Razaf, music by Joe Garland
- charted by Glenn Miller at #1 in 1940 and again at #20 in 1943
- also charted at #16 by Johnny Maddox in 1953
- as recorded by The Andrews Sisters

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-cha share it with me"
"Well" he answered "Baby, 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 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 his crazy lovin'
In the mood what I was missin'
It didn't take me long to say "I'm in the mood now"



So, I said politely "Darlin' may I intrude"
He said "Don't keep me waitin' when I'm in the mood"



"Well" he answered "Baby, don't-cha know that it's rude
To keep my two lips waitin' when they're in the mood"

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
It's a mess of moonlight, won't-cha share it with me"
"Well" he answered "Baby, don't-cha know that it's rude
To keep my two lips waitin' when they're in the mood"

I was just sitting here in only my robe and this song came to mind.
by USAFA Cadet on 1/31/2009 7:14pm
Randomly a couple notes came to mind and luckily I remembered the name of the song. Awesome song for dancing.

by Band Geeeeeeeek... on 2/10/2009 5:14pm
So we totally played this song in jazz band, and I definitely didn't realize that there were lyrics to it... Even though I probably should've. Now I can sing words to it instead of just, "Bah bah dee, mm doo dah, bee da doo, mm boo daaahhh!!!!"
by Sax playah on 2/18/2009 8:26pm
only if the sax notes were there.
by musicien on 3/11/2009 10:49pm

My choir is doing this song and it is soooooooo much fun to sing
by Judi on 10/5/2009 6:14pm
Yeah, Old Bob! My mom, who is 85, sings it this way.."Mr. Whatcha Callit whatcha doin' tonight, Hope you're in the mood because I'm feelin' just right,
How's about a corner with a table for two,
Where the music's mellow in some gay rendevouz,
There's no chance romancin' with a blue attitude,
Ya gotta do some dancin' to get in the mood."
Where did she get these lyrics--I can't find them anywhere!? Are these the original lyrics, as Bob suggests?

I'm glad "Old Bob" remembered it the way I do. "by Old Bob on 5/2/2009 9:36pm--Mr whatcha callit whatcha doin tonight,Hope your in the mood because I'm feelin allright. This begins original lyric." I was a freshman in High School when I first heard this song, and I listened to it again this morning when I walked my dog. Great music!

i have to learn this song for a jazz concert im doing its my very 1st solo concert ever wish me luck!
by Matt on 1/12/2012 8:09pm
A few people have mentioned a different set of lyrics for the song (which were also the ones I was actually looking for when I came here, the lyrcs that begin with 'mister whatchacallum'.) It seems the other lyrics people are remembering are the Andrew Sisters' version of the song. Perhaps these lyrics are the original lyrics?
by warren on 5/25/2012 1:59pm
WHO was the lady vocalist (name) on the glen millar recording of in the mood????

recordação imortal da minha juventude e dos amores que eu lá tive
by Sal on 5/8/2013 3:13pm
The lyrics that Old Bob mentioned are from the Andrews Sisters version. I think that these are the origional lyrics.
by To momma on 5/10/2013 2:58pm

"Mr Whatchacallim what ya doing tonight;

by Mary Earl on 4/30/2014 11:39pm
I heard the lyrics when this song first came out, and they were what old Bob said.
MR, WHATCHACALLIT WHATCHA DOING TONIGHT.

My my didn't know so many young people liked 1940s music. I love that music as did my parents who lived through the 1940s. It was from them that i learned the music. Glenn miller is my favorite & yes i love "In The Mood.
