  • Lyrics
  • This song is an ode to Brooke Shields' scandalous child character in the 1978 movie Pretty Baby, which was directed by Louis Malle. The film took its title from a different song called "Pretty Baby," which is a Tin Pan Alley standard that has been recorded by Tony Jackson, Al Jolson, Doris Day and Dean Martin. >>

  • Fred from Laurel, MdNever heard this tune, but I see there's an allusion in it to the 1967 psychedelic-rock hit, "Incense and Peppermints" by the Strawberry Alarm Clock.
