achtung


Explanation:
Achtung = Be careful

I think that U2 sings "Achtung, baby !" because these words are stronger than "Be careful".
I think this translation is correct according to the meaning of this CD : be careful about boys, about life. U2 usually sings for teenagers, and this message is for them.
