about

Generally, I try to avoid transgendering songs, but somehow I felt that the female-worded versions made sense, and the fantastic horn arrangement by Jan Korinek just transported the song into a different sphere.

We've actually been playing this song live for quite some time at our Lindy Hop gigs, so when we were choosing songs for the album we simply had to include it, and I'm quite happy that we did :)

lyrics

I got a boy who's always late
Any time we have a date
But I love him
Yes I love him

I'm gonna walk up to his gate
To see if I can get it straight
'Cause I want him
I'm gonna ask him

Is you is or is you ain't my baby
The way you're acting lately makes me doubt
Youse is still my baby, baby
Seems my flame in your heart's done gone out

Now a man is a creature that's always been strange
Just when you're sure of one you'll find
He'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
