"Hello! Ma Baby" (Hello My Baby) is a Tin Pan Alley song written in 1899 by the team of Joseph E. Howard and Ida Emerson ("Howard and Emerson"). Its subject is a man who has a girlfriend he knows only through the telephone.
Its chorus is far better known than its verse, as the introductory song in the famous Warner Bros. cartoon One Froggy Evening (1955), sung by the character later dubbed Michigan J. Frog and high-stepping in the style of Bert Williams:
--- LYRICS ---
Hello, hello, hello!
I've got a little baby but she's out of sight
I talk to her across the telephone
I've never seen my honey but she's mine alright
So take my tip and leave his gal alone
Every single morning you will hear me yell
"Hey Central fix me up along the line"
He connects me with my honey and I ring the bell
And this what I say to baby mine:
Hello! ma baby
Hello! ma honey
Hello! ma ragtime gal
Send me a kiss by wire
Baby, ma heart's on fire!
If you refuse me
Honey, you'll lose me
Then you'll be left alone
Oh, baby, telephone
And tell me I'm your own!
--- DID YOU KNOW? ---
"Hello My Baby" was sung in the movie "Spaceballs" by an alien that emerges from a man's chest in the diner. This version by Michigan J. Frog originally aired in "Looney Tunes" several times, including in "Looney Tunes: Back in Action", when Bugs Bunny tells Kate Houghton that he plays the female co-star and dresses as a female. Michigan J. Frog, sitting at a table behind Kate and Bugs, starts singing the song.
In the "South Park" episode "Cancelled" (2003), the likeness of Saddam Hussein (briefly assumed by an alien) sings the song while dancing.
