The Ink Spots: Do I Worry? (1942)

The Ink Spots waren populair in de jaren ’30 en ’40. Wegbereiders van R&B, rock and roll en doo-wop. In de samenstelling Charles Fugua, Orville ‘Hoppy’ Jones, Bill Kenny en Ivory ‘Deek’ Watson zingen ze hun hit uit 1940 Do I Worry? van songwriters Stanley Cowan en Bobby Worth.

Do I worry ‘cause you’re stepping out?
Do I worry ‘cause you’ve got me in doubt?
Though your kisses aren’t right, do I give a bag of beans?
Do I stay home every night and read my magazines?

Am I frantic ‘cause we’ve lost the spark?
Is there panic when it starts turning dark?
And when evening shadows creep, do I loose any sleep over you?
Do I worry? You can bet your life I do

The Ink Spots treden op in Pardon My Sarong (1942). Een comedy met Bud Abbott en Lou Costello. Ze klinken langer na dan de komieken.
