Gotta Darn Good Reason Now (for Bein' Good)

    (Wheeler-Wright)

Transcribed from Cab Calloway and His Orchestra, recorded July 24, 1930.
From Cab Calloway and His Orchestra 1930-1931; The Chronogical Classics 516.

A
Oh, she's pretty and witty, soft-natured and sweet
Attractive and active, boy, clever and neat;
I've got a darn good reason now for being good.

A
I'm hazy and I'm crazy; I'm crazy for love,
She's willing for billing and she coos like a dove;
I've got a darn good reason now for being good.

B
I was just a rounder turning nighttime into day,
But now it's different; since this loving made me change my way;

A
Oh she kills me and she thrills me; she has big satin bows;
She knows it and she shows it wherever she goes.
I've got a darn good reason now for being good.
