Baby Doll

This song is by Laurie Anderson and appears on the album Strange Angels (1989) and on the compilation Talk Normal - The Laurie Anderson Anthology (2000).

I don't know about your brain -
But mine is really bossy

I come home from a day on the golf course
And I find all these messages
Scribbled on wrinkled up scraps of paper

And they say thing like:
Why don't you get a real job? or:
You and what army? or:
Get a horse.

And then I hear this voice
Comin' from the back of my head
Uh huh (whoa-ho) yep!
It's my brain again
And when my brain talks to me
He says:

Take me out to the ballgame
Take me out to the park
Take me to the movies
'Cause I love to sit in the dark
Take me to tahiti
'Cause I love to be hot
And take me out on the town tonight
'Cause I love the new hot spot.

He says:
Babydoll! ooh ooh ooh
Babydoll ooh
He says: babydoll!
I love it when you come when I call
Babydoll!
You don't have to talk
I know it all
Babydoll! ooh ooh ooh
Babydoll! ooh

Well I'm sitting around
Trying to write a letter
I'm wracking my brains
Trying to think of another word for horse
I ask my brain for some assistance.
And he says:
Huh... let's see... How about cow? That's close.


Take me out to the ballgame
Take me out to the park
Take me to the movies
'Cause I love to sit in the dark
Take me to your leader
And I say: Do you mean George?
And he says: I just want to meet him
And I say come on I mean I don't even know george!

He says:
Babydoll! ooh ooh ooh
Babydoll ooh
He says: babydoll!
I love it when you come when I call
Babydoll!
You don't have to talk
I know it all
Babydoll! ooh ooh ooh
Babydoll! ooh
Babydoll! (repeat to fade)
