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!

I've found a new baby,
I've found a new girl,
My special sweet baby,
Got my brain in a whirl!

Oh, her new kind of lovin',
Is all that I crave,
Her new turtle dovin'
Has simply made me her slave.

Oh, what a miss with a kiss full of bliss, ain't she that, I vow!
She's got a mean pair of eyes, tantalize me, and how!

I've found a new baby,
I just had to fall,
I've found a new baby,
She's a new kind of baby, that's all.

Ethel Waters starred in both the stage and film version of Cabin in the Sky. The movie also starred Lena Horne and Eddie "Rochester" Anderson. Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington had minor roles. Waters commented in her remarkable autobiography, His Eye is on the Sparrow, that she didn't enjoy making the movie -- too much behind-the-scenes back-biting.
