"What Baby Wants" is a song performed by Alice Cooper featuring Ke$ha. It serves as the twelth track on Cooper's twenty-sixth studio album Welcome 2 My Nightmare.

Background

While Cooper was thinking of a character to play the devil on Welcome 2 My Nightmare, he came across Ke$ha at the Grammys and said that she had the qualities of a "rock singer." In typical Alice Cooper fashion (harkening back to Billion Dollar Babies when Donovan sang with Cooper on the title track), he decided to bring Kesha in to work on the album because it would be unexpected.[1] Cooper said about Kesha, "I think a lot of my audience is going to go KESHA!?, but she probably wrote the most disgusting lyrics in the song – we had to rein her in."[2] According to Cooper, many of her lyrics had to be toned down for the album. Kesha plays the part of the devil, continuing from "I'll Bite Your Face Off", telling Alice that it's time to pay the ultimate price: his soul.[3]

Lyrics

She gonna come for you
And you can try to run and hide
No matter what you do
She gonna take it deep inside
You're thinking this could be a dream come true
But you don't really understand
She feeds on flesh and blood and boys like you
She gonna make you be a man

She'll take your bleeding heart and your soul, no regrets
Cause what baby wants (What baby wants wants wants)
Baby gets (She's gonna gonna gonna get)
What baby wants (What baby wants wants wants)
Baby gets (She's gonna gonna gonna get)

I gotta pretty face
Yeah but I've seen what's hiding underneath
You like my pretty mouth
But you got razor blades instead of teeth
And now its too too late for you
Oh yeah tell me what you gonna do
I'm gonna drain your veins and bathe in your blood
Honey I seen worse than you
I'll make you sit, beg, roll over, play dead
Ain't gonna be your little pet
Oh really

What baby wants (What baby wants wants wants)
Baby gets (She's gonna gonna gonna get)
Yeah what baby wants (What baby wants wants wants)
Baby gets (She's gonna gonna gonna get)

Baby tells lies, Baby looks you in the eyes
It's her aphrodisiac, when she stabs you in the back
She comes on like a saint but that's exactly what she ain't
Not a damsel in distress, she's the devil in a dress
She's gonna stay with you
She's gonna play with you
It's one thing you can bet

Cause what baby wants (What baby wants wants wants)
Baby gets (She's gonna gonna gonna get)
Yeah what baby wants (What baby wants wants wants)
Baby gets (She's gonna gonna gonna get)

I'll make you sit, beg, roll over, play dead
I'm gonna be your little pet

Cause what baby wants (What baby wants wants wants)
Baby gets (She's gonna gonna gonna get)
Yeah what baby wants (What baby wants wants wants)
Baby gets (She's gonna gonna gonna get)
Cause what baby wants (What baby wants wants wants)
Baby gets (She's gonna gonna gonna get)
Yeah what baby wants (What baby wants wants wants)
Baby gets (She's gonna gonna gonna get)

What baby wants, baby gets
