Don Redman - "Doin What I Please" lyrics

I'm staying single,
Conscience at ease,
I'm free to mingle,
I do what I please!

When I'm out late nights,
No one has my keys,
Yeah, I keep my dates nights
Doin' what I please.

You know, I don't have no starved waters, (')
Because they keep you on the shelf,
And I ain't takin' orders,
So I just go along enjoyin' myself.

Should I go sailing
'Cross the seven seas'
No one can stop me,
Doin' what I please!

You know I have romances,
Just like a dog has fleas,
And I take in all the dances,
That's because I do what I please.

I blow in at these parties,
Just like a reckless breeze;
I outsmart all these other smarties,
Because I do just what I please.

You know, where there's no action,
You'll find that there's blues about,
And I get my satisfaction
Only when I'm steppin' out.

And whenever I get tipsy
Out at one of these jamborees,
No one can stop me,
'Cause I do what I please!
