  • 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 oh)
    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 Writer/s: Martin Karl Sandberg

  • Kaylen from Lagrange , InI forgot i aslo have all your albums... and i have all your songs memorized by heart...
  • Kaylen from Lagrange , InBritney Spears I am your biggest fan i love your music, clothes and your voice. i have loved you since i was a little girl i am in the high school and still have folders and wallpaper of you and all the fun stuff. for my cell phone i have your ring tone... WELL i guess i better go.. i love you Britney Spears.... Loves and kisses... ME
  • Estel from 303, CoAugust Burns Red also did a cover of this song for the album Punk Goes Pop.
  • Austin from Pingree, NdBrittany Spears should be locked in a room (make the walls foam so she can't hurt herself) sealed off from the rest of the world where she can listen to her music and lip sink to it as much as she wants. Then we'd all be free from this crap... oh wait there's a whole genre of it:0
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnI hated this song at first but eventually grew to love it like everyone else - peer pressure sucks!
  • Rahul from Chennai, Indiahahahahahahaha.... sleep with me im not too young it seems..... lolz..... yeah that defines britney deoesn't it.... but i don't care... this song is awesome.....
  • Bob from Hallanedale, FlThank you Michael (Melbourne) for stating the real truth-the mainstream really sucks! They know nothing about health, nothing about real medicine, nothing about true sexuality, nothing about the environment, nothing about honesty, and obviously not a damn thing about good music! I wish this bimbo had lived in Russia during the reign of Stalin- he would have used her as tank fodder! If this generation keeps allowing this kind of crap (which they consider music) to go on, we are all doomed! Otis Redding, please come back from the dead, god do we need you now!
  • Mirna from Portoviejo, Ecuadori think that the guy in the video is her cousin
  • Bertrand from Paris, FranceShe first gained national notice as a member of [i] The New Mickey Mouse Club [i] on Disney's cable network, but it was as a pop singer that Britney Spears became the most watched celebrity in the world. Her first single "...Baby One More Time" is a brilliant piece of pop music. It's catchy, sexy, and it sports a mildly controversial video certain to keep people talking.
  • Elmer from Honolulu, Hii missed the old britney spears, what she's been doing with her life
  • Sam from Montreal, CanadaThis song was released as a hit and music video in May 1997 but failed to be a commercial success even if it passed on the music video stations for a while. Both re-released in January 1999, the commercial success appears as its actual form.
  • Michelle from Raleigh, Ncthe outfits in this video started a revolution among 8 year old girls i was obsessed with britney spears when i was like 7-10
  • Michelle from Raleigh, Nci used to be so obsessed with britney spears i had a britney spears backpack in 5th grade isnt that creepy i still like her music just not her i think the outfits in this vdeo started a revolution
  • Paul from Savannah, GaThis song was originally offered to TLC who turned it down
  • Jessica from Corsicana, TxYeah if you do play the song backwards its does say "Sleep with me im not to young". i know where you can listen to it. http://jeffmilner.com/backmasking.htm
  • Sandy from Warsaw, Inalexandria, lompoc, CA youre really crazy Brittany Spears cant sing and she never could! She is a dunb person who now is in rehab because she did drugs and shaved off all of her hair and now she looks even more stupid than she did before! Brittany Spears never should've started singing! I hate her and her music!
  • Amanda from Little Rock, ArI LOVE this song. It totally made me a fan of hers and it brought back great bubblegum pop (for a short time).
  • Matt from Marion, IaWell, this song doesn't have much against it. It only aided MTV in an entire generation of worthwhile music. So please, have some heart for this poor song, people!
  • Caitlin from Upper Township, NjBritney used to be so popular. It's such a shame that she had to hit the wall. I think she could have made it big!
  • Alexandria from Lompoc, Cahey britteny it is me alexandria i luv u're music
    and u are so cool i luv u're song (baby on more time).bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Tom from East Lyme, Ctone of the only songs where the backwards message actually exists, this and empty spaces, thats it
  • Claire from Oak Ridge, TnIf you do not believe us, go to albinoblacksheep.com. They've also got hidden messages from "Another One Bites The Dust" and "Stairway to Heaven." On another related note, when clay-mated counterparts of Christina and Britney fought on "Celebrity Deathmatch", Christina said, "You want me to hit you one more time, baby? How 'bout 20 more times?!!"
  • John from Eagle River, AkI learned how to play the travis version and taught it to my friends and now we do a realy rockin cover for it.... THANK YOU TRAVIS!!!
  • Sd from Kuwait, OtherThe cover of this song by the Scottish band Travis started out as a joke at a jamming session with a group of friends, where the producer of a famous(now dead) radio show in the UK heard it, and convinced them into singing it live on the show the next day. In some versions of the cover you can hear people laughing in the background. As time went by they took this song seriously, and did this song quite a number of times. Their version, after peeling of all the layers of pop, with emotion in the vocals, obviously sounds much better than the original.
  • Madeline from Melbourne, AustraliaAhhh, the beginning of death. The handfuls of covers done of this song beats the original by far
  • Alex from Brussel, BelgiumThe song is often misunderstood. It's about physical abuse in relationships and how girls are blinded by love and will take anything as long as the guy doesn't leave her
    The poppy, mindnumbing music blurs the message, that's why the Travis version is a lot better.
  • Charlie from Auckland, New ZealandThis was originally written as an acoustic song hence the reason why Travis covered it
  • Michael from Melbourne, Australiashows how low the mainstream has sunk
  • Reed from Hagerstown, Inin response to what james said: go to http://www2.memlane.com/jmilner/stairwaybackwards.htm and you'll see what he meant. im not sure whether its real or not, but its pretty funny nonetheless. you'll just have to decide for yourself...
  • James from Tacoma, WaPlay part of it backwards and it says "Sleep with me I'm not too young"
  • Raymond from Sydney, AustraliaThe band "Bowling For Soup" has also done an excellent cover of this song.
    This version of the song is on the soundtrack to Disney's 2003 version of "Freaky Friday".
  • Caitlin from Sailsbury, Ncthere is a video on ebaumsworld.com about her boobs yall should watch its so funny
  • Virna from Santo Domingo, Otherthe travis version was a lot cooler, it's the same song but it sounds so different!
  • Pawl from Houston, TxTravis' version is better!
  • Steph from San Antonio, TxThe orginal concept for the video was to be a comic strip.
  • Gimpy from Cloquet, Mnbritney has a great butt! this video has some great booty action.
  • Perfdcgbhu from Sofia, BulgariaThis is a very popular song!
  • Brad Wind from Miami, FlOf course the three dots make a difference! Does anybody believe that parents would allow teenagers -- particularly teenage girls -- to buy a record with a name of "Hit Me Baby One More Time"?
