"Baby One More Time" as written by and Martin Karl Sandberg....
Oh baby, baby
How was I supposed to know
That something wasn't right here
Oh baby, baby
I shouldn't have let you go
And now you're out of sight
Show me how you want it to be
Tell me baby 'cause I need to know now,
Oh because

[Chorus]
My loneliness is killing me
(and I)
I must confess I still believe
(still believe)
If I'm not with you I lose my mind
Give me a sign
Hit me baby one more time

Oh baby, baby
The reason I breathe is you
Girl you got me blinded
Oh pretty baby
There's nothing that I wouldn't do
It's not the way I planned it
Show me how you want it to be
Tell me baby 'cause I need to know now,
Oh because

[Chorus]

Oh baby, baby
How was I supposed to know
Oh pretty baby, I shouldn't have let you go
I must confess, that my loneliness
Is killing me now
Don't you know I still believe
That you will be here
And give me a sign
Hit me baby one more time

[Chorus]

    General CommentLol. I LOVE THIS. SOOO much better than the original. Muffinhead is right. It brought a new meaning to the song. That's pretty amazing since they didn't even change the lyrics. I love how music can do that...or people can do that to music. :s whatever.

    General CommentI just saw the Britney Spears version on VH1 today. Dear God... It reminded me just how good Travis' version is.

    General Commentwow. I never really understood what this meant with britney singing it, but this awesome cover really clarifies the meaning.

    the singer was in a relationship with a person who broke up with them, however they are still in love with their ex, and its really hurting them. so they continuosly try to get back with this person, even though they keep getting rejected and hurt: "hit me baby one more time"

    they keep hoping eventually the person will come around and see how much they mean to them if they keep coming back, but they keep getting rejected, and it hurts because all they can think of is that one person.

    General CommentEven though i'm not a fan of Britney you've got to admit that she writes a good song.

    ...or at least her professional writers do.

    :]

    General Commenti'm kinda pissed at everybody who said "it brought a new meaning".

    it didn't.

    it's the same song.

    just because somebody else sings it doesn't make it any more special.

    i'm sure when Travis played this song they didn't really mean for it to be taken seriously.

    but maybe he did. the point is that you have to appreciate music no matter who sings it.

    you can't hate a song simply based on the person who sings it. it's kinda shallow if you think about it.

    but regardless of everything i just said it's a good song.

    General CommentIt did bring a new meaning fernandoBOT. If you sing something with emotion, rather than just singing it, it has a new meaning. And you can hate a song based on the person who sings it. If you don't like their voice how can you like any of their songs?

    General Commentdude..when britney sings it (or whatever you call it)..its sounds like boppy shit..but when you got this gut and a guitar it actually gives ppl a chance to hear the song for what it is..and it sounds so much better too..
