The Baby Face Mystery

In Baby Face, the lyrics first line of the third verse go:

"Comin' home late at night to turn you on"

But when I listen to it, I hear a secondary voice singing:

"to turn you over"

What's the deal with that?

This song is about a women right? But is it also about a small child too?

Or am I hearing things and seeing things that aren't there?

it's about seeing model's faces in magazines...was written about Naomi and Christy Turlington who were in U2's orbit back during Pop (Adam was dating Naomi, etc)...

I hear that too. To me, it's talking about a relationship between a man and a young girl-"babyface". (you know, Lolita kind of thing)
Perhaps, in a way, the man realizes she's basically a child (turn you over), and yet he's attracted to her (turn you on).
