"Hey Baby" as written by and Bruce/cobb Channel....
I’m the kinda girl that hangs with the guys
Like a fly on the wall with my secret eyes
Takin it in, try to be feminine
With my makeup bag watchin all the sin
Misfit, I sit
Lit up, wicked
Everybody else surrounded by the girls
With the tank tops and the flirty ways

I’m just sippin on chamomile
Watching boys and girls and their sex appeal
With a stranger in the face who says he knows my mom
And went to my high school

All the boys say,
Hey Baby, Hey Baby, Hey
Girls Say, Girls Say,
Hey Baby, Hey Baby, Hey
Hey Baby Baby
Hey Baby, Hey Baby, Hey
Boys Say, Boys Say
Hey Baby, Hey Baby, Hey
All the boys get the girls in the back

I’m the one they feed upon
Give a bit a star is born
And if you're hot enough you’ll get the pass
And you can tell your friends how you made it back
No matter what they say I’m still the same
Somehow everybody knows my name
And all the girls wanna get with the boys
And the boys really like it


(Bounty Killer)
Check it out, it's Bounty Killer and No Doubt

Jump on the stage, girls be going crazy,
have to help myself to one of these gorgeous ladies
there is no need to be actin shady
come on baby, hey hey baby

the way you rock yuh hips you know it amaze me
got me off the hook and nothing else don't faze me
can you be my one and only sunshine lady?
no if nor maybe, hey baby

I’m just sippin on chamomile
Watching boys and girls and their sex appeal
With a stranger in the face who says he knows my mom
And went to my high school

Chorus (x2 with some Bounty Killer parts in it)

    General CommentWhen I first heard it I didn't like it. then I listened closer and it really is a good song. I've read the other reviews and people need to give them a break. When a band has a hit song the fans love it. If they change their style the fans usually hate it. Music fans, in general, are a pain in the ass. They make it very difficult for a band or artist to actually grow. They just want to hear different versions of the same song over and over. No fun for the artist at all....

    General CommentI think this song is great and just because it has a pop sounding beat to it doesn't mean they're "following the crowd" or what your standards might be for staying "different". They are what they've always been and I think that's obvious in the lyrics too. All of their songs are about women's rights and I think that's what makes them so awesome. You don't have to be a tomb boy to prove yourself...you can be whoever you want to be. You can hang with the guys and not have to hook up. You're a person not just a sex :D

    General CommentI have to agree with some of you, it seems as though they have lost touch with what made them unique in the first place. The brutally honest and sometimes heartwrenching lyrics, and the ska/rock beats made No Doubt famous and original. I understand their want to collaborate but this time i think something is definately missing. It's a good song, but it's as though any band could be the artist behind it. ~Beauty~

    General Commenti think this song and their new album is completly different from their old one, return from jupiter, this one is so much more electro, i think the other one is way more appealing
