In the Mood

Mr. Whatchacallim, whatcha doin’ tonight
Hope you’re in the mood, because I’m feelin’ just right

How’s about a corner with a table for two
Where the music’s mellow and some gay rendezvous
There’s no chance romancin’ with a blue attitude
You’ve got to do some dancin’ to get in the mood

Sister Whatchacallim, that’s a timely idea
Something swing-a-dilla, would be good to my ear
Everybody must agree that dancin’ has charms,
When you have that certain one you love in your arms

Steppin’ out with you will be a sweet interlude
Oh, builder up for that would put me in the mood

In the mood
That’s it
I got it

In the mood
Your ear will spot it

In the mood
Oh what a hot hit

Be alive
And get the jive,
You’ve got to learn how

Hep like a hepper

Hot as a pepper

Step like a stepper

From muggin’ to huggin’
We’re in the mood now

Mr. Watchacallim, all you needed was fun
You can see the wonders that this evening has done
Your feet were so heavy, 'till they hardly could move
Now they’re light as feathers and you’re right in the groove
You were only hungry for some musical food
You’re positively absolutely in the mood

Sister watchacallim, I’m in debted to you
It all goes to show what good a new hit could do
Never felt so happy and so fully alive
It seems that jammin’ jumpin’ is a powerful jive
Swing-a-roo has given me a new attitude
My heart is full of rhythm and I’m in the mood

In the mood
That’s it
‘Cause I got it

And I’m in the mood
Your ear will spot it

When you’re in the mood


Be alive
And get the jive,
You’ve got to learn how

You’re hep like a hepper

Full of pep-pep-pep
You’re hot as a pepper

And you step-step-step
Step, step like a stepper

From muggin’,
And now we’re huggin’
'Cause we’re in the mood
