Baby's love, so sweet and tender,
turns a father's head from tomes;
melts a mother's heart asunder,
wreaks sweet havoc in our home.
Baby sleepy, baby dreamy,
breath of blossoms, scent divine;
silky cheeks so smooth and creamy,
beckon kisses, baby mine.
Baby eyes gleam fascination,
wonder-filled at life they shine;
oh, turn to me with sweet affection,
for you have all mine, all mine!
