De band The Babys werd in het Verenigd Koninkrijk opgericht in 1974 door muzikant Michael Corby en manager Adrian Miller. Samen met John Waite, Tony Brock en Wally Stocker vormden zij de band.



Het eerste album genaamd The Babys verkocht goed, ondanks dat Corby en Millar niet echt tevreden waren over dat album. De hitsingle Isn’t It Time is afkomstig van hun tweede album genaamd Broken Heart. Na het uitkomen van dat album begon het te rommelen in de band. Uiteindelijk verlieten Millar en Corby de band en werden vervangen door Jonathan Cain en Ricky Phillips. Waite had zichzelf tot leider van de band gepromoveerd. Na een aantal concerten, waarin The Babys als het voorprogramma stonden van Journey, stapte Cain over naar Journey. Het vierde album bevatte meer pittigere muziek, dat zou uiteindelijk hun ondergang worden. De verkoopcijfers vielen erg tegen.



Opvallend was dat ze succesvoller waren in de Verenigde Staten dan in hun thuisland.



Na het uiteenvallen van The Babys richtten Ricky Philips, John Waite en Jonathan Cain de band Bad English op, maar al vrij snel stapte Cain weer over naar Journey. Brock en Stocker gingen aan de slag bij Rod Stewart. Stocker zat ook in Air Supply.



In 2013 zijn The Babys weer bij elkaar gekomen, met de originele leden Tony Brock en Wally Stocker samen met nieuwe leden John Bisaha en Joey Sykes. Live heeft de band nog keyboardspeler Francesco Saglietti en de achtergrondzangeressen, The Babettes, Holly Bisaha en Elisa Chadbourne.


In 2014 brachten ze het album I’ll Have Some Of That uit.

Songtekst

Falling in love was the last thing I had on my mind
Holding you is a warmth that I thought I could never find

(Sitting here all alone) Just trying to decide
(Whether to go all alone) Or stay by your side
(Then I stop myself because) I know I could cry
I just can't find the answers
To the questions that keep going through my mind
Hey babe, isn't it time

(Isn't it time it took time to wait)
(Falling in love could be your mistake)
Isn't it time (Isn't it time you took time to wait)
(Falling in love could be your mistake)

I've seen visions of someone like you in my life
A love that's strong reaching out
Holding me through the darkest night

(Sitting here all alone) Just trying to decide
(Whether to go all alone) Or stay by your side
(Then I stop myself because) I don't want to cry

I just can't find the answers
To the questions that keep going through my mind
Hey babe, isn't it time

(Isn't it time it took time to wait)
(Falling in love could be your mistake)
Isn't it time (Isn't it time you took time to wait)
(Falling in love could be your mistake)

I feel a warmth in my heart, and my soul that I never knew
This love affair gives me strength
That I need just to get me through

(Sitting here all alone) Just wondering why
(Then I stop myself because) I know I could cry
(Then I think of you) And everything seems alright

I've finally found the answers
To the questions that keep going through my mind
Hey babe, isn't it time

(Isn't it time you don't have to wait) (Don't have to wait)
I know it's time (Losing this love could be your mistake)
Ooh yeah, (Isn't it time) I know it's time
(Isn't it time you don't have to wait) It must be time
(Don't have to wait) (Losing this love could be your mistake)
(Isn't it time) It must be time
(Isn't time you don't have to wait) (Don't have to wait)
It oughta be time (Losing this love could be your mistake)
(Isn't it time) (Isn't it time you don't have to wait)
(Don't have to wait) It must be time
(Losing this love could be your mistake) (Isn't it time)

(Repeat....)
