  • She leads a lonely life
    She leads a lonely life

    When she woke up late in the morning light
    And the day had just begun
    She opened up her eyes and thought
    Oh, what a morning
    It's not a day for work
    It's a day for catching sun
    Just laying on the beach and having fun
    She's going to get you

    All that she wants is another baby
    She's gone tomorrow, boy
    All that she wants is another baby
    All that she wants is another baby
    She's gone tomorrow, boy
    All that she wants is another baby

    (All that she wants)

    (All that she wants)

    So if you are in sight and the day is right
    She's a hunter, you're the fox
    The gentle voice that talks to you
    Won't talk forever
    It is a night for passion
    But the morning means goodbye
    Beware of what is flashing in her eyes
    She's going to get you

    All that she wants is another baby
    She's gone tomorrow, boy
    All that she wants is another baby
    All that she wants is another baby
    She's gone tomorrow, boy
    All that she wants is another baby

    All that she wants is another baby
    She's gone tomorrow, boy
    All that she wants is another baby
    All that she wants is another baby
    She's gone tomorrow, boy
    All that she wants is another baby

    All that she wants
    All that she wants Writer/s: Brittany Scriven, Jonas Berggren, Justin Franks, Corey Gibson, Ulf Ekberg, Jenny Berggren, Malin Berggren

  • George from Vancouver, Canada"My baby" usually means "my child"; you use "baby" or "my babe" to refer to a romantic partner/interest.
  • Bsharp from Columbus, OhI'm here to comment about the ambiguous lyrics. I've done a poll and most Europeans think "another baby" means another boyfriend. Most Americans think it means another child. In native vernacular English "my baby" can mean a romantic interest but not "a baby". But in ESL, second language English speakers often accept that "a baby" can mean romantic interest also.

    Since Ace of Base is Swedish and singing in ESL I guess they just meant "another baby" to mean another boyfriend. But it is a more interesting song the other way.
  • Eugene from Minneapolis, MnNo I think this record, as Rick Deeshas mentioned on his countdown that it is about simply wanting another man. A one night love affair for crying out loud! Believe there a hand full of people live their lives in this matter, which is unfortunate and dangerous both spiritually and physically.
  • Louise from Newcastle, United KingdomI used to love this song, but it drives me mad now- and also, it's more or less decided that this song IS about women using men to get pregnant.
  • Darryl from Queensland"Another baby" could mean another guy - not necessarily a child at all. My daughter and I are in dispute on this one !
  • Rob from Detroit, MiNote to Tara: The lipstick case belonged to Pat Benatar.
  • Sara from Traverse City, MiNow that I know what this song is about, it makes sense now that is. I use to sing this song all the time as a kid, and never had a clue what it was actually about.
  • Tara from Philadelphia, PaIt is possible that instead of 'stud balls' and welfare, it is about a woman how just wants one night hooks ups. 'another baby' may not literally mean child, but asa joan jett would say 'another notch in my lipstick case'
  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesJake - that they were compared to ABBA may have had something to do with Ace of Base not only being comprised of a 2 male 2 female line-up but also the fact that they came from Sweden
  • Jacquie from Sparks, NvI always had a theory that this song was about that, and no one believed me! Now everyone will have to bow down before me and accept me as their great ruler!...okay, maybe not, but still, I was right!
  • Jake from San Mateo, CaAce of Base were often compared to ABBA & A*Teens....
    Figure 2 Females & 2 Males..... hmmmmmmmm
