BABY'S GOT A TOOTH
Copyright, 1881, by J. W, Pepper. All rights reserved.
I'm the father of a bouncing boy,
He looks just like his pa;
He's the picture of his mammy,
And the image of his dada.
He was eight months old the other day-
He is a noble youth;
We have been almost crazy since
He got his first front tooth.
George, dear, George, dear, can't you guess the truth?
George, dear, George, dear, bless the little youth;
Do get up and light the fire, turn the gas a little higher
Go and tell your aunt Maria baby's got a tooth.
I went home late the other night,
And soon was sound asleep,
When suddenly I was awoke
By sounds that made me weep;
My wife she grabbed me by the arm,
And says, get up you brute.
The pride and joy of-all of us
Has got a nice front tooth.- Chorus.
Now married men take my advice:
When first you do get wed,
Don't ever try to go to sleep,
Dont ever go to bed;
But to save yourself from trouble of
The darling little pet,
Don't wait until it gets a tooth-
Buy it a nice false set.-Chorus.
