"Ain't Misbehavin'" is a song broadcast on Appalachia Radio in Fallout 76. It is performed by Fats Waller and was written by Waller, Andy Razaf and Harry Brooks in 1929. The version that plays on Appalachia Radio is a re-recording that Waller made for the 1943 film Stormy Weather with Zutty Singleton and His Orchestra. Waller died a few months after the film's release and the full recording was posthumously issued in 1947[1] advertised as "'Fats' Waller's last record."[2]

LyricsEdit

No one to talk with
All by myself
No one to walk with
But I'm happy on the shelf
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you

I know for certain
The one I love
I'm through with flirtin'
It's just you I'm thinkin' of
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you

Like Jack Horner
In the corner
Don't go nowhere
What do I care?
Your kisses are worth waitin' for
Believe me

I don't stay out late
Don't care to go
I'm home about eight
Just me and my radio
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you

Like Jack Horner
In the corner
Don't go nowhere
What do I care?
Your kisses are worth waitin' for
Believe me

I don't stay out late
Don't care to go
I'm home about eight
Just me and my radio
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you
