My Babe - the Pirates

Dixon, 1964 (mono), 1992 (stereo).  Recorded: 11-10-63

Mick Green (lead) - Johnny Spence (bass) - Frank Farley (drums)

A classic cut in one take, as was its b-side "Castin' My Spell". The Pirates were well-versed in the studio, needing few rehearsals before committing to tape. The single was re-issued as an exclusive part of the French EMI double-LP "Rocker" in 1978.

 
My babe, don't stand no cheatin', my babe
Yeah, my babe, she don't stand no cheatin', my baby
Well, my babe, she don't stand no cheatin'
None of that midnight creepin'
My babe, cool little baby, my babe

(instrumental break 1)

Well, my babe, I know she loves me, my babe
Yeah, my babe, I know she loves me, my baby
Well, my babe, I know she loves me
Nothing but kiss and hug me
My babe, cool little baby, my babe

(instrumental break 2)

Well, my babe don't stand no cheatin', my babe
Well, my babe, she don't stand no cheatin', my baby
Well, my babe, she don't stand no cheatin'
None of that midnight creepin'
My babe, cool little baby, my babe
Ohhhh, my babe, cool little baby, my babe

(instrumental break 3, to fadeout)
