Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby"
The Lyrics:
Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby?
Why:
As a "Tom and Jerry" fan (where this song was played on "Solid Serenade") Tom serenades his lady cat with this song who's voiced by Ira Woods...yes Tom Cat HAD a voice in this cartoon! The appropriate title should be "Are you are aren't you my baby"?

"Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby"
The Lyrics:
