Concentratin' (On You)

Concentratin' (On You)

(Thomas Fats Waller / Andy Razaf)


Roy Fox and his Band


I put my shoe on my head
My hat on my feet
Forgetful the whole day through
I can't think of
Nothin' but love
Concentratin' on you

I put my clothes on the bed
Sleep on the seat
Can't figure two and two
Got crazy ways
I'm in a daze
Concentratin', on you

I had a perfect memory
Until you came along
Now since your spell is over me
My brain seems all wrong

Sometimes I stand in my flat
Don't know where I'm at
I pay bills before they're due
Got you to thank
My mind's a blank
Concentratin' on you
