Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My Baby? (1944)
(w) Billy Austin (m) Louis Jordan (I) Louis Jordan and his Tympany Five
Verse: I got a gal who’s always late,
Ev’ry time we have a date. But I love her, yes I love her.
I’m gonna walk right up to her gate,
To see if I can get it straight.
‘Cause I want her, I’m gonna ask her:

Refrain: Is you is or is you ain’t my baby?
The way you’re acting lately makes me doubt.
You have always been my baby, baby.
Seems the flame in your heart has gone out.

Well a girl is a creature who has always been strange.
Just when you think you’re hers, you know,
She’s gone and made a change. So
Is you is or is you ain’t my baby?
Has my baby found somebody new?
Or is my baby still my baby true?
