Ruth Wallis (5 January 1920 – 22 December 2007) was a novelty cabaret singer. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Wallis began her career singing jazz and cabaret standards, but gained fame in the 1940s and 1950s for her risqué, satirical songs, rife with double entendre that she wrote herself. She did have a mainstream hit with "Dear Mr. Godfrey," a song about his public firing of Julius La Rosa.

Wallis had come up with many fine calypsos previously, but never an entire calypso album. Considering that calypso is the natural idiom for anyone with a mastery of the double entendre, it is no wonder that Wallis sounds perfectly at home with it. There are many reasons why this is her masterpiece. First, there is unity of theme, exotic percussion, and even such authentic-sounding touches as guitar and chorus. Second, she had a wealth of calypsos to draw from for her own material. Some antecedents are obvious. She sounds like the fantastic Eloise Lewis in "Brandy in Me Te.
Such is the stuff of Ruth Wallis' prematurely enlightened female bravado. Only ten songs on this party line, but a little Wallis seems to go a long way while still leaving one hungry for more. In addition to her usual subjects of sex, money, and marriage, she addresses many other aspects of Americana (in "The American Plan" and others). Russia, Bermuda, Latin America, and the Orient also are represented. The backing music is sparsely appropriate, and she is not above using sound effects for emphasis.
