The Babys ~ Head First


The year was 1978 . . . in the midst of disco fever . . . one of my favorite songs of all time was born out of the disfunctional collaboration of awesome musicians who could not keep it together as a group . . . The Babys, featuring the awesome vocals of John Waite.

The group is known for the songs Everytime I Think Of You and Isn't It Time, both made it on the US and Australian charts.  Everytime I Think Of You peaked at #13 in the US.  Head First was not a commercial success, peaking on the US charts at #77, but for me, it remains one of my favorite songs of all time.

The following is a video I created . . . 
the first in a series of videos I will be
making on my favorite songs of all time.

The video has more facts about the song and the group.



Head First | The Babys
Lyrics

Well the first time that I saw ya
You looked down and out
And I had my doubts
About you
But baby since I've come to know ya
I ain't got no doubts
What it's about
Me and baby
We're going out tonight
She's gonna treat me right
Ooh yeah
Me and sugar
We've got it all sewn up
She fills my loving cup
We're going head first
Well the second time that I saw ya
Man you'd really improved
I was really moved
How I wanted you
I'm knocking at your door
To see if you're alone tonight
Cause I need some more
Of what you got
Me and baby
We're going out tonight
She's gonna treat me right
Ooh yeah
Me and sugar
We've got it all sewn up
She fills my loving cup
We're going head first
Baby baby baby
Take me in your arms and love me
Cause you know what I am anyway
You got me on my knees
I'm gonna say please if you want me
Cause I want you so
I'm never gonna let you go
Me and baby
We're going out tonight
She's gonna treat me right
Ooh yeah
Me and sugar
We've got it all sewn up
She fills my loving cup
We're going head first
Me and baby
We're going out tonight
She's gonna treat me right
Ooh yeah
Said me and baby
We've got it all sewn up
She fills my loving cup
Ooh yeah
Me and baby
Me and baby gonna rock and roll
She fills my loving cup
It's gonna be alright
Me and baby
We're gonna rock and roll
We're gonna rip it up
We're fallin' head first
