"Baby Doll" as written by and Rico Darnell Anderson....
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

    General CommentGod I just love this song. It's so much fun, so silly, and so totally how me and my brain sometimes interact. LOL My favorite line is "Do you mean, George?" LMAO everytime at that, especially since she wrote this during George the First, but it's even more applicable under George the Second.

    General CommentJames Merrill

    She’s in love, at least. Ma Cherie
    In real life
    Sews costumes for her marionettes
    Helps her to keep behind the scene
    Whose side lit goose-girl
    Speaking with his voice
    Plays Guinevere as well as Gun-moll Molly
    Or else at bedtime
    In their tight embrace
    Tell her French hopes
    And her German fears
    Her—but what more is there to tell?

    My InterpretationNow I first heard this song on SNL in 1986. So the lyrics at that time couldn't have been, "I don't even know George," because it would have been "I don't even know Ronald." But I don't recall if those were the exact lyrics or not. Point is I think the song was written in 1986 so there must have been different lyrics back then.
