About My Baby Just Cares For Me
“My Baby Just Cares For Me” was written for the 1930 film version of Whoopee! with Eddie Cantor. Though recorded by many artists, the song is widely associated with Nina Simone, who recorded it for her 1958 debt album Little Girl Blue.

Lyrics

My baby don’t care for shows, my baby don’t care for clothes,
My baby just cares for me.
My baby don’t care for furs and laces,
My baby don’t care for high-toned places,
My baby don’t care for rings or other expensive things,
She’s sensible as can be.
My baby don’t care who knows it,
My baby just cares for me.

My baby’s no Brando fan, Rock Hudson is not her man,
My baby just cares for me.
My baby don’t care for Tyrone Power,
She’d rather be with me by the hour.
Jeff Chandler is not her style and Liberace’s smile
Is something she just can’t see.
I wonder what’s wrong with baby
My baby just cares for, she answers my prayers for
My baby just cares for little old me.
At least that what she’s tells me anyway.
