"Baby One More Time" as written by and Martin Karl Sandberg....
Oh baby, baby
Oh baby, baby

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, yeah
Show me how want it to be
Tell me baby 'cause I need to know now, oh because

My loneliness is killing me (and I)
I must confess I still believe (still believe)
When 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
Boy 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

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

Oh baby, baby
Oh baby, baby
Yeah,

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

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

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

    General Comment>_> All you kids need to STFU. This is 'songmeanings.net', not 'let'simmaturelybasheveryartistwedon'tlike.net'. Seriously. Look, I know people who -liked- this song when it came out. Hell, I did too. It's not a bad song at all. And although I don't believe Britney herself meant anything too deep by it, the song does have some kind of meaning.

    She's too wrapped up in a dysfunctional relationship with some guy - she wants him back because she's lonely, but she want him to knock some sense into her (emotionally, physically or otherwise) because she also knows being with him wouldn't do her any good. Can we -please- look past the artists and just LOOK AT THE GODDAMN SONGS FOR ONCE? Jesus. Fucking. Christ.

    I don't care what the hell you say, everybody back in '99 or whenever thought this was the shit, and they really weren't far off, either. I know songs and artists about a million times worse than you think she sounds, and if you think her singing is to the point of GOD AWFUL, you have really, really bad taste in music.

    Go look up some Kana on Youtube and then tell me Britney's voice is worse than that. Please.

    General CommentAll of you who diss on Britney Spears are stupid. She is sexy and talented, you are just jealous because you are not.

    General CommentIt means to hit your baby in the head with the stearing wheel while you hold it in your lap like the redneck you are when you slam on brakes to miss that squirel in the road. Thats what the song is about.

    General Commentplease. why all the dramatics. it's just a pop song. it's not that different than most others. she's lucky for what she has while it lasts. lets just leave it at that. she hasn't done nothing that bad.

    General Commentok.... i really do think this song is about sex. and if you wanna talk about America, here you go. a 17 year old flat America girl that sings about her loneliness and how its killing her when her boy isnt around. then she askes him to hit her one more time (sodomy or other Violent sex). "I still believe" meaning, i still believe im a virgin, but we all know that its a lie. but what the hell do you think this American sex lover would sing about??? your right, this is what America has come to. sex, drugs and bullshit. so i can say that this is the pride of America. it is very very sad, but its the fuckin truth. if i had it my way, i would bitchslap her 50 times across the face, rape her and murder her. that is what she's fucking askin for.
    SO HERE IS YOUR FUCKING AMERICA!!!!!!!

    I HATE YOU BRINTEY!!!!! FOR ALL YOU EVER DID TO USE!

    Oh yeah, & I think this song is about her asking her ex or w/e to give her another chance cuz shes lonely & doesnt know wut she gave up when she did if that makes sense... she wants another chance, not sex... grow up u horndogs ugh.
