Cooper, Alice - Dead Babies Lyrics




Little Betty ate a pound of aspirin she got them from the shelf upon the wall
Betty's mommy wasn't there to save her she didn't even hear her little baby call
Dead babies can't take care of themselves dead babies can't take things off the shelf
Well we didn't want you anyway lalalalalalalalalalala
Daddy is an agrophile in Texas mommy's on the bar most every night
Little Betty's sleeping in the graveyard living there in burgundy and white
Dead babies can't take care of themselves dead babies can't take things off the shelf
Well we didn't love you anyway lalalalalalalalalalala
Goodbye little Betty goodbye little Betty so long little Betty so long little Betty Betty so long
Dead babies can't take care of themselves dead babies can't take things off the shelf
Well we didn't need you anyway lalalalalalalalalalala goodbye little Betty

Cooper, Alice Dead Babies Comments
  1. x x

    Sinister as it should be..in this fucked world🖤

  2. x x

    This record is a Killer

  3. Make Me One

    Though AC made great albums in the early 70s and I loved them, this song has an eerie and sad deliberate abandonment feeling to it.

  4. French Paul 1988

    Because I was able to write down this song's lyrics by ear (I'm not a native English speaker in case you hadn't guessed) and because I had painted the album's artwork on my backpack, Killer will always remind me of high school. And my time in HS was in the mid-2000s, not the early 1970s...

  5. Phillip O'Brien

    This song haunts me, the "we didn't want you, anyway" part reminds me of my mother telling me I wasn't planned and she'd never have stayed with my father if I hadn't appeared...

  46. rockandbluesfan 79

    In the late 60s and early 70s everyone was peace and love, then came wicked Alice that brought gruesome reality. It's awesome .

    Anime Chat

    the alice cooper album came out in 1969, look up the album "pretties for you"

  47. Darcy Richardson

    They were Dangerous, Subversive!

  48. Jacob Stinnett

    One of my favorite Alice songs.

  49. james allen-jones

    This is a fun tune to play on gtr...lotta neat stuff going on, halo of flies is wicked fun to play as well. <\M/>

  50. Donald Whittaker

    Ezrin - good producer.

  51. Delling Conley

    I have since then taken the pound of aspirin I like to keep on the shelf, and locked it in the gun safe along with the agrophile porn. No harm done, it's only one baby. We can make another. It won't happen again. I promise.

  52. Steve Birchall

    Killer and Billion Dollar Babies definitely top 20 albums all time with David Bowie's T9 Rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

  53. Steve Birchall

    Alice Cooper is a rock and roll legend with Glenn Buxton Dennis Dunaway Neil Smith someone help I think there was a Mike also do I have the names right?

    Darreoll Mooney

    Steve Birchall...yes, Micheal Bruce

  54. Jacob Stinnett

    One of my favorite songs! 👏👏👏
    I’m just getting into him, and I’ve been wondering the whole time why I never listened to him sooner!
    They have soooo many songs I didn’t know I knew, you know?
    Because the radios overplay School’s Out and No More Mr. Nice Guy, so I just thought he was some bland rocker from the 70’s with two hits - which was shitty of me. Now I know I was WAAAAAY WRONG! WAAAAAY WRONG!
    He’s one of my favorite singers, and they’re one of my favorite bands!
    Musical geniuses!

  55. Otubrokse 96

    🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘

  56. Bruce Day

    My parents never understood how I could be a fan of a man named Alice who wore eye makeup. They thought I was becoming a liberal hippie freak but they also didn’t understand I was listening to the words. I grew up joined the military. Got married. Had kids and worked for the same company for 42 years. If you listen to his words, he’s telling you to have fun, rebel a bit, love and take care of your family, respect women, and stay straight. If more people had listened closer.

  57. mrromantimothy

    Too many people listen to this song and don't listen to the lyrics it's not about killing babies it's about people that create them and don't intend on raising them

  58. Its Gems

    My grandmother told me about this song

  59. Adventures & Survival in Thailand

    This is actually a great song. Always loved Alice Cooper. Typical epic operatic song from the coop band

  60. Frances Morphew

    One of the first albums I ever bought

  61. Michael Deangelo

    1972 was my year for loving this band - I still have the LP's, and all of his records...

  62. MrLive2win

    I think it was Johnny Rotten that called Killer the greatest rock album of all time!!!! Even over Sgt. Peppers. Wow.

    Mark Choma

    Way better than Sgt. Peppers.

  63. Dennis Murphy

    Nowadays it would be a firearm or fentanyl that little Betty would get into.

  64. Hwcmdls

    Little Betty ate a pound of aspirin
    She got them from the shelf upon the wall
    Betty's mommy wasn't there to save her
    She didn't hear, hear her little baby call
    Dead babies can't take care of themselves
    Dead babies can't take things off the shelf
    Well, we didn't want you anyway
    Lalala-lalalalalala-la
    Daddy is an agrophile in Texas
    Mommy's on the bar most every night
    Little Betty's sleeping in the graveyard
    Living there in burgundy and white
    Dead babies can't take care of themselves
    Dead babies can't take things off the shelf
    Well, we didn't love you anyway
    Lalala-lalalalalala-la
    Goodbye little Betty
    Goodbye little Betty
    So long little Betty
    So long little Betty
    Betty, so long
    Dead babies can't take care of themselves
    Dead babies can't take things off the shelf
    Well, we didn't need you anyway
    Lalala-lalalalalala-la
    Goodbye little Betty

  65. James Kennedy

    Mommy did'nt love you anyway......

  87. James Kennedy

    Child abuse song /long before it was talked about in public..........

  88. Robert Murphy

    Dead Babies started the anti crib death syndrome movement , think about it ?

  89. marc toleds

    Does anybody knows who recorded the beautifull high pitch/female voice that appears on the chorus of this magnificient song? Is it Michael Bruce's falsetto or a true female singer? It seems to be the same person/ voice screaming in the opening end of "killer".

  90. Lindsey -

    Knew all the words to this song since I was four.

  91. andrew hamsterdad

    we used to listen to this album every day at lunch in high school while getting high..in the home town of Alice Cooper

    Mom hated it and it scared the shit out of my sisters and I
