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 sleeping, baby dreaming,
her 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!
