About Baby Talk

"Baby Talk" is a 1959 song by Jan and Dean which was a Top 10 hit for them on Dore Records. Jan Berry worked on the song with friends and Dore Records staffers Lou Adler and Herb Alpert. Alpert recalled recording the song in Jan's garage. The song spent 12 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart peaking at No. 10, while reaching No. 28 on Billboard's Hot R&B Sides. While not usually considered part of the "surf pop" genre, it contains many elements of what would become the signature sound of southern California in the early '60s such as the close vocal harmonies combined with falsetto sounds. Original pressings of the single were mislabeled as by "Jan & Arnie"; this was later corrected. The song was originally released as a single in 1959 by The Laurels on Spring Records, though their version failed to chart. In 1962, Jan & Dean released a sequel to the song, entitled "She's Still Talking Baby Talk".

Bah bah bah bop oom dab oom dab oom wa wa wa 
Bah bah bah bop oom dab oom dab oom wa wa wa 
Bah bah bah oom dab oom dab oom dab oom dab 

I am only five years old and my baby's three 
But I know that she's the girl just you wait and see 
When I say I love my girl, she replies to me, yeah

Dab oom dab oom dab dab oom dab oom dab dab dab 
Oom dab oom dab oom dab dab oom dab oom dab dab 
Which means to say she loves me 
In baby talk 
To say she loves me 
Dip di dip di dip

She cannot speak very well, everybody knows 
But to me she sure looks swell, in her baby clothes 
I asked her if her love is true and she only goes 
Yeah

Dab oom dab oom dab dab oom dab oom dab dab dab 
Oom dab oom dab oom dab dab oom dab oom dab dab 

Which means to say she loves me
I'll tell the world, that I love her so 
And if she wants to be my girl 
I'll never, (ever), ever let her go-o 

(Mmm hmm hmm oom dab oom dab oom dab dab) she will say to me 
When I kiss her on the cheek, oh so tenderly 
Although I'm only five years old, she is only three 
I really love my baby 
(Dip di dip di dip) 
Love my baby 
(Dip di dip di dip) 

Bah bah bah bop oom dab oom dab oom wa wa wa
Oom dab oom dab oom dab dab, oom dab oom dab, dab dab 
Oom dab oom dab oom dab dab, oom dab oom dab dab

(Ooh ooh ohh ohh) oom dab oom dab oom dab dab, oom dab oom dab oom dab dab
Oom dab oom dab oom dab dab, oom dab oom dab oom dab dab 
(Woo wee ooo ooo ooo ooo) oom dab oom dab oom dab dab, oom dab oom dab dab dab
