Song facts

From Wikipedia:

“Baby Face” is a popular song. The music was written by Harry Akst, the lyrics by Benny Davis. The song was published in 1926. That same year, Jan Garber had a number one hit with the song.

“Baby Face” was covered by many recording artists of the time (and since then), including Al Jolson and The Revelers. Swan Districts, an Australian Rules club in the WAFL since 1934, bases its club song on this tune.


A cover appeared on Paul McCartney’s remastered “Band on the Run” special edition release in 2010. The song appears on DVD and is presented as the last track from the selection as performed by Paul McCartney.
