IN THE MOOD Words & Music by Andy Razaf & Joe Garland, 1939
        Recorded by Glenn Miller,
   alt lyrics recorded by The Andrews Sisters and then later by Bette Midler 

(The key to this song is the swinging beat that carries thru the lyrics too.)


[Intro]
G A7 Am7 D7


[Verse 1]
G 
Mister Whatchacallum watcha doin' tonight?

Hope you're in the mood because I'm feelin' just right.
C
How's about a corner with a table for two,
G
Where the music's mellow in some gay rendezvous.
D7
There's no chance romancin' with the blue attitude,
Am7       G           C6             Eb7 D7 G6
You've got to do some dancin' to get in the mood.


[Verse 2]
G                           
Sister Whatchacallum that's a timely idea,

Something swingadilla would be good to my ear.
C                         
Everybody must agree that dancin' has charms
G
When you have that certain one you love in your arms.
D7
Steppin' out with you will be a sweet interlude,
Am7   G         C6               Eb D11 G6 
A builder-upper that will put me in the mood.


[Chorus 1]
G          Gdim  Am7                D7b9                        
In the mood,        that's it I got it,    
G          Gdim  Am7                   D7b9    
In the mood,        your ear will spot it,
G          Gdim  Am7               D7b9                        
in the mood,         oh what a hot hit,        
   D7            Ddim                 D7 Eb7 D7 G
Be alive and get the jive, you've got to lea-rn how.


[Chorus 2]
G           Gdim  Am7          D7b9   
Hep, hep, hep,       like a hepper,
G            Gdim  Am7            D7b9   
pep, pep, pep,        hot as a pepper,
G              Gdim  Am7                D11   
Step, step, step,       step like a stepper,
   D7             Ddim              D7  Eb7 D7 G
We're muggin' and huggin', we're in the mo-od  now.


[Verse 3]
G                                               
Mister Whatchacallum all you needed was fun,

You can see the wonders that this evenin' has done.
C                                              
Your feet were so heavy till they hardly could move,
G
Now they're light as feathers and you're right in the groove.
D7
You were only hungry for some musical food,
Am7    G           C6         Eb D11 G6 
You're positively, absolutely in the mood.


[Verse 4]
G                          
Sister Whatchacallum I'm indebted to you,

It all goes to show what good influence can do.
C                          
Never felt so happy and so fully alive,
G
Seems that jam and jumpin' is a powerful jive.
D7
Swing a roo has given me a new attitude,
Am7      G          C6             Eb D11 G6 
My heart is full of rhythm and I'm in the mood.


[Chorus 1]
G          Gdim  Am7                      D7b9 
In the mood,        that's it 'cause I've got it, and I'm
G          Gdim  Am7                    D7b9 
In the mood         your ear will spot it when you're
G          Gdim  Am7                D7b9 
In the mood,        (scat),
   D7                Ddim               D7 Eb7  D7 G
Be alive and get the jive,   you've got to lear-rn how


[Chorus 2]
G           Gdim  Am7          D7b9   
Hep, hep, hep,       like a hepper,
G            Gdim  Am7            D7b9   
pep, pep, pep,        hot as a pepper,
G              Gdim  Am7                D11   
Step, step, step,       step like a stepper,
   D7                 Ddim                         D7 Eb7 D7 G
We're muggin' and now were huggin', cause we're in the mo-od now.


[Outro]
