Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby (Louis Jordan/Bill Austin)

I got a gal that's always late
Every time we have a date
But I love her
Yes I love her

I'm gonna walk right up to her gate
And see if I can get it straight
Cause I want her I'm gonna ask her

Is you is or is you ain't my baby?
The way you're actin' lately makes me doubt
Yous is still my baby-baby
Seems my flame in your heart's done gone out
A woman is a creature that has always been strange
Just when you're sure of one
You find she's gone and made a change
Is you is or is you ain't my baby
Maybe baby's found somebody new
Or is my baby still my baby true?

Is you is or is you ain't my baby?
The way you're actin' lately makes me doubt
Yous is still my baby-baby
Seems my flame in your heart's done gone out
A woman is a creature that has always been strange
Just when you're sure of one
You find she's gone and made a change
Is you is or is you ain't my baby
Maybe baby's found somebody new
Or is my baby still my baby true?

Denis Mello - from Brazil7/26/2005 9:17:32 AM One of the most great arrange for music that I've heard. Very good. The way in that this music (Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby) is perfect. Louis Jordan rocks! Peace.

Anthony3/1/2006 11:50:55 AM I also learned how to get hit in the face with a frying pan from Tom & Jerry. Mostly from Tom. Love this song.
Dan3/5/2006 10:53:04 PM I would like to know who actually performed the song on Tom & Jerry-there's a bass solo in that version that does not appear in any other version. Plus, who actually sang it for the cartoon?
Mark Neath3/12/2006 6:23:34 PM The T&J episode is called "Solid serenade". I think I have only seen it once over 35 years ago but I still remember it
kevin3/13/2006 11:07:47 AM This question just came up spontaneously in our office also. Who actually sang it for the cartoon?
