I'm Gettin' Myself Ready for You

    (Porter)

Transcribed from Blanche Calloway and Her Joy Boys, recorded March 27, 1931.
From Blanche Calloway and Her Joy Boys, 1925-1935; The Chronogical Classics 783.

I cut out necking, cut out petting,
And with the boys I'm all through,
'Cause I'm gettin' myself ready for you!

I'll never stoop to onion soup,
And pork and beans are taboo,
'Cause I'm gettin' myself ready for you!

To be sure of being worthy of you, dear, in every way,
I'm building a perfect physique;
And besides, dear, I want you to holler "hooray!"
When first you see me in the so-to-speak!

If you still feel I'm your ideal,
For you anything I will do,
'Cause I'm gettin' myself ready for you!
