Cher and James Corden sing “I Got You Bae” for Millenials

 

Cher James Corden Sing Live

Cher joined James Corden Thursday night to sing “I Got You, Bae,” a modernized version of her classic 1965 hit with Sonny Bono “I Got You Babe,”. “I’m going to do one of my favorite songs tonight,” the singer told the crowd. “But I want to do it in a different way.”

Corden strolled out onstage dressed, awkwardly, as Cher. Tossing around a black wig, he noted that Cher playing herself was “a bit obvious.” The two Chers filled their funny duet with lyrics about love in 2016 aimed at millenials, exploring topics like “Netflix and chill,” deleting Internet porn history and making a relationship “Facebook offish.”

“They say we’re young and we don’t know/ How to find love without using your phone,” Cher crooned. “I don’t know if all that’s true/ ‘Cause you swiped me and, baby, I swiped you,” Corden replied.

In a sit-down interview with Corden, Cher admitted she didn’t initially like “I Got You Babe,” written by her musical and romantic partner, Sonny Bono.”I was sleeping,” she said. “We bought a piano for $82 that only had a couple of broken keys. And we had only furniture for the bedroom, and he used to have a piano in the living room. He used to write, and he’d wake me up and go, ‘Cher, come here, I just need you to sing this,’ which I never wanted to do. So he was writing, and he said, ‘Cher, I want you to come here and sing this.’ I said, ‘Sonny, I’m embarrassed.’ He said, ‘Cher, Jesus, it’s just me.’ It was ‘I Got You, Babe.’ And I went, ‘I’m going back to bed. This is just nothing.’

“It was on the piano. It just sounded like … I don’t even know. Just really not a hit song,” she continued. “But I said the same thing about [1989 solo hit ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’] … Because Diane Warren did the demo, and it was terrible. And I love her, as much as I love her … Finally, she said, ‘I’ll pay for it.’ And if you know Diane Warren, that’s a big [thing]. I said, ‘OK, babe, if you’re gonna pay for it, you have to believe it in so much – I’ll do it.’ Two takes, that was it.'”

Modern love — it’s just so charming.

Watch the pair bring down the house with their adorable rendition, complete with updated lyrics: “When I text you an eggplant, you’ll send me a nude on Snapchat.”

Lyrics of Cher & James Corden “I Got You Bae”

CHER:
They say we’re young and we don’t know,
How to find love without using your phone.

JAMES:
Well, I don’t know if all that’s true.
Cause you swiped me, and baby, I swiped you.

TOGETHER:
Bae,
I got you bae.
I got you bae.

JAMES:
When I text you, an eggplant,
You’ll send me a nude, on Snapchat.

CHER:
And when we make it, Facebook “offish,”
That means more to me than marriage.

JAMES:
When I watch porn, when I’m all alone,
I’ll delete the history, before you come home.

CHER:
And when we fight, and I get revenge,
By posting a pic of me with my ex-boyfriend.

TOGETHER:
Bae,
I got you bae.
I got you bae.

JAMES:
I got you as my date.

CHER:
I got you to sext me late.

JAMES:
I got you to Netflix and Chill.

CHER:
I got you covered ‘cause I take the pill.

JAMES:
I got you always in my head.

CHER:
I got you to try that thing in bed!

JAMES:
I got you, to do this sketch!

CHER:
And I got you in that ridiculous outfit!

TOGETHER:
I got you Bae.
