Etta James recorded this for her debut album, At Last!
(1960), as the flip-side to the hit title track
. In a distinct change from Dixon's original lyrics, James is eager to tackle the domestic chores for her lover/husband that Waters said he didn't want. While he insisted, "I don't want you to bake my bread," she sang, "All I want you to do is to bake your bread, just to make sure that you're well fed."
Her version was resurrected in 1994 for a Diet Coke commercial
that shows a group of women taking a break from work to check out a sexy construction worker (Lucky Vanous) outside their office building. Due to the ad's popularity for its comic gender flip on objectification, James' single was re-released and peaked at #5 in the UK. In 2013, the same song was used in a similar ad
for the soft drink, this time casting a sexy gardener (Andrew Cooper) instead of a construction worker. A woman tosses him a Diet Coke, which overflows on him when he cracks it open, and he gives her group of friends a show by taking off his shirt.
