is you is or is you ain't my baby actually totoally reminds me of that very specific episode of tom and jerry where tom plays bass and sings it to try and get the girl
Lucky Us, Chapter 7:
Not much. Had to go rescue my favorite alcoholic and her other bff from a night club, so I’m sitting up with them to make sure they don’t choke on their vomit.
Tomcat, huh? Shall I break out the bass and start singing?
IS YOU IS, OR IS YOU AIN’T MY BABYYY? (or would it be “Lady” in this case?)
Lucky Us, Chapter 8:
Marinette tossed her phone onto the sofa with a grin. It was a beautiful morning, wasn’t it? She’d cracked the windows open to let some fresh air circulate through the house and further uplift her spirits. Her laptop, signed into Skype and waiting for her mother’s call, blared jazz music.
“Is you is, or is you ain’t my baby? Way you’re acting lately makes me doubt. Yooouse is still my baby, baby. Seems my flame in your heart’s done gone out…”
Damn cat. It was going to be stuck in her head all day.
