About I've Found a New Baby

"I've Found a New Baby", also known as "I Found a New Baby", is a popular song written by Jack Palmer and Spencer Williams. It was introduced by Clarence Williams' Blue Five in 1926 and has since been recorded by many artists, making it a popular jazz standard. Popular versions in 1926 were by Ted Lewis and by Ethel Waters. Bing Crosby recorded the song on September 5, 1945 with Eddie Heywood and Bobby Darin included the song in his album Winners (1960). Spencer Williams and Palmer had collaborated in 1924 on the hit song "Everybody Loves My Baby, but My Baby Don't Love Nobody but Me", and Williams had a hit in 1919 with "Royal Garden Blues". All three songs have become standards, and "I've Found a New Baby" is included in the repertoire of almost every traditional jazz band. Charlie Christian's guitar solo on "I've Found a New Baby" with the Benny Goodman Orchestra in 1940 is considered one of the most influential solos recorded by the guitarist.

Everybody look at me, 
Happy girlie, you will see, 
I've got someone nice, oh, gee! 
Oh, joy, what bliss! 

Just the treasure that I need, 
Pure as gold and guaranteed, 
Is he handsome? Yes, indeed! 

Let me tell you this
I found a new baby, 
A sweet honey boy, 
My fashion-plate baby 
Has thrilled me with joy! 

His new way of lovin' 
Has made me his slave, 
His sweet turtle dovin' 
Is all that I crave! 

Sweetest kiss, what a kiss, full of bliss, can't resist, somehow! 
Tells me lies, but he's wise, naughty eyes mesmerize, I vow and how! 
I don't mean maybe, 
I just had to fall
I found a new baby, 
A new baby, that's all! 

I found a new baby, 
A sweet honey boy, 
My fashion-plate baby 
Has thrilled me with joy! 

His new way of lovin' 
Has made me his slave, 
His sweet turtle dovin' 
Is all that I crave! 
Sweetest kiss, what a kiss, full of bliss, can't resist, somehow! 
Tells me lies, but he's wise, naughty eyes mesmerize, I vow and how! 

I don't mean maybe, 
I just had to fall, 
I found a new baby, 
A new baby, that's all
