Baby Doll Lyrics - Laurie Anderson

Review The Song (3)



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 know the new hot spot. He says: Babydoll! Ooo oo oo Babydoll Ooo He says: Babydoll! I love it when you come when I call Babydoll! You don't have to talk I know it all Babydoll! Ooo oo oo Babydoll Ooo 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. 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 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! And he says: Babydoll! Ooo oo oo Babydoll Ooo He says: Babydoll! I love it when you come when I call Babydoll! You don't have to talk I know it all Babydoll! Ooo oo oo Babydoll Ooo Babydoll! Babydoll! Ooo oo oo Babydoll! Babydoll! Ooo oo oo Babydoll! Babydoll! Ooo oo oo

To me, it's about that voice in our heads telling us we're not good enough, that we need more things to be happy. Then there's also that constant need for entertainment and a lack of satisfaction. And it's all told with that wonderful Laurie humor... a great tune.

For me, this song expressed the furstration of being a prisoner to my surroundings, even my own brain. It is about the vulnerability and effeteness of 'me'; although I think I rule myself, I suspect that I am like a toddler trying to drive a juggernaut, and that often for my own safety, my brain has to make 'me' play a minor role in my life. The song expresses this so well, and with humour, as Laurie's brain says to her 'You and whose army', or 'take me out to the ball game'. Witty, simple, and a catchy tune.
