"Annie Wants a Baby" as written by Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, Michael 'flea' Balzary and Josh Klinghoffer....
Lucy Rebar, she's a friend of mine
Later she'll go back and redefine the line
It's getting longer all the time
Oh yeah

Drinking sunshine, she likes the taste of it
She had a goldmine, but then she wasted it away
You should have seen her yesterday
Oh yeah

Sing along the way
Nothing stops the ache

Sugar daddy, loves her madly
Cosmo Shiva, got off made you a believer
I don't need to, tend her
Why do I believe you?
Annie wants a baby now
Annie wants a baby any way she can

Missing pieces, she's got a lot of 'em
Time decreases, I wish I thought of 'em before
Before it's time to close the store
Oh yeah

Installation, a lonely sick of fame
Some liberation, the only seed we ever plant
I wanna help you but I can't
No No

Sing along the way
Nothing stops the ache

Sugar daddy, loves her madly
Love her, leave her, got off made you a believer
Be our soldier
Let her, now you've gotten older
Annie wants a baby now
Annie wants a baby any way she can

It's getting longer all the time
It's time to re-design the sign
Oh yeah
Sing along the way

    General CommentI must be wrong but when I listen to this cong I can see very clear the picture of a girl who always has what she wants, I mean, that kind of girl who always gets what she wants. But it's never enough. She's always tired of what she has and always want something different, and by the chorus "Annie wants a baby now, Annie wants a baby anyway she cans" we can see that it's just another thing that she wants to pass the time. I mean, she always get what she wants but in the end she has nothing, and the feeling of having nothing scares her to death. But that's just my interpretation

    Lyric CorrectionThe [?] should be ache, and in "The only seed we ever farm," farm should be plant

    Lyric CorrectionFrom the lyrics booklet:

    "Lucy Rebar"

    "Sing along the way
    Nothing stops the ache"

    "Sugar daddy
    Loves her madly
    Cosma shiva
    Got off
    Made you a believer
    I don't need to
    Tender
    Why do I believe you"

    "Distillation
    A lonely sycophant
    Some liberation
    The only seed we ever plant"

    "Sugar daddy
    Loves her madly
    Love 'er leave 'er
    Got off
    Made you a believer
    Neon soldiers
    Left her
    Now you've gotten older"

    And the last line is "Sings along the way"

    General CommentI am listening to the correct song? The song that I have on my itunes does not follow along with any of these lyrics except the Lucy Rebar part.

    General CommentI can't see a clear idea about this song... Annie could be Nina Hagen? Cosma Shiva is her daughter... Anthony was her lover many years ago, right? "Some liberation The only seed we ever plant I wanna help but I can't", she wants a baby from him? (I'm getting pretty annoying I guess lol)

    General CommentI found this at lyricsfreak - it is actual the version of the song i have in MP3 format


    Lucy reibart,
    She's a friend of mine.
    Later she'll go,
    Back and redefine the line.
    It's getting longer all the time.
    Oh yeah
    Drinking sunshine,
    She likes the taste of it.
    She had a goldmine,
    But then she wasted it away.
    You should have seen her yesterday.
    Oh yeah

    [Chorus 1:]
    Sent along the way,
    Nothing stops the ache
    Sugar daddy,
    Loves her madly.
    Cosmo sheeva,
    God oh made you a believer.
    I don't need to,
    Tend her,
    Why do I believe you?
    Annie wants a baby now.
    Annie wants a baby any way she can.

    Missing pieces,
    She's got a lot of em.
    Time decreases,
    I wish I thought of em before.
    Before it's time to close the store.
    Oh yeah

    Installation,
    A lonely sink of fame.
    Some liberation,
    The only seed we ever plant.
    I wanna help you but I can't.
    No no

    [Chorus 2:]
    Sent along the way,
    Nothing stops the
    Sugar daddy,
    Loves her madly.
    Lover keeva,
    God uh made you a believer.
    Be our soldier,
    Let her,
    Now you've gotten older.
    Annie wants a baby now.
    Annie wants a baby any way she can,

    It's getting longer all the time.
    It's time to re-design the sign.
    Oh yeah
    Sent along the way

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a woman who wants to procreate by any means, but she hasn't a clue about how to do it. "Go, back and redefine the line" or "It's time to redesign the sign" means that having a baby it's not so simple since she's been trying to get pregnant for a long time.
    "She had a goldmine, but then she wasted it away"--> reference to abortion. Annie tries to sing to turn off the pain she feels ("nothing stops the ache"). Probably she's tried so many times to get pregnant that everybody in her family started to believe in some omen ("cosma, shiva, made you a believer"). The second verse explains menopause (the "missing pieces" are the ovarian cells,"time decreases" because she keeps losing them- "before it's time to close the store" (permanent cessation of her reproductive function)) The "installation" which Anthony refers to is having a foetus growing and developing leaving her mother alone for nine months (she'll stay at home more than ever, taking care of herself). The "liberation" is actually giving birth to the baby. And is the "only seed we ever farm" because having children is the way we leave a sign in this world. There's no happy ending, since this "sugar daddy" leaves Annie (they both become older and cannot have babies anymore). Sad story.
