My baby don't care for shows
My baby don't care for clothes
My baby just cares for me
My baby don't care for cars and races
My baby don't care for high-tone places

Liz Taylor is not his style
And even Lana Turner's smile
Is somethin' he can't see
My baby don't care who knows
My baby just cares for me

Baby, my baby don't care for shows
And he don't even care for clothes
He cares for me
My baby don't care
For cars and races
My baby don't care for
He don't care for high-tone places

Liz Taylor is not his style
And even Liberace's smile
Is something he can't see
Is something he can't see
I wonder what's wrong with baby
My baby just cares for
My baby just cares for
My baby just cares for me

Original lyrics

My baby don't care for shows
My baby don't care for clothes
My baby just cares for me
My baby don't care for cars and races
My baby don't care for high-tone places

Liz Taylor is not his style
And even Lana Turner's smile
Is somethin' he can't see

My baby don't care who knows it
My baby just cares for me

My baby don't care for shows
And he don't even care for clothes
My baby just cares for me

My baby don't care for cars and races
My baby don't care for
He don't care for high-tone places

I wonder what's wrong with baby
My baby just cares for
Just says his prayers for
My baby just cares for me

Sweet Song from a High Class Musician
{#Dance} Love it!  Whenever I hear it I think of the scene from "Stealing Beauty"

I never tire of this.
 
If you were to use my rating method, it would be a "10" based on your never tiring of it. (I rate songs based on how much I'd like to hear more like them, rather than how great I think they are; so a song that I think—or know—is great, I might rate lower because I don't want to hear many like it very often.)
How can you not love Nina singing just about anything...
{#Cheers}  I always think of the movie "Shallow Grave" when I hear this tune...lovely!

Oooooh. Luscious.
Amazing song - the piano accompaniment is as good as the voice.
this is the song my husband and I danced to at our wedding . . . perfect!
Why oh why hasn't this been played yet? Classic song from one of the greatest of all time.
