We asked the online crowd for something comfortable, and the winning entry was "a really good hug". We stood on the shoulders of Big Joe Williams, Louis Prima, and maybe even a bit of Elvis Presley to deliver a 50s style shuffle about cuddling.


I don't love my baby and my baby don't love me (x2)
But she holds me so nice, I never wanna be set free

She's got two long arms, she's stronger than a bear (x2)
She's soft as a pillow and comfy as a rockin' chair

When my heart's broken, I'm so blue that I can't speak (x2)
I just find her arms and I sleep straight through the week

She thinks I look funny and she always give me lip (x2)
We cuddle so much we joined up at the hip

Yeah, my baby holds me...

Some day she'll leave me, and I'll be sleeping all alone (x2)
I'll just call up my baby, she'll hold me through the telephone

Hold me, baby!...
