Dot Funny Leetle Baby.
Recited by Gus Williams
So help me gracious! every day
I laugh me vild to see der vay
My shmall young baby dries to play-
Dot funny little baby.
Vhen I look of dhem leetle toes,
Und saw dot funny leetle nose,
Und heard de vay dot rooster crows,
I shmile like I vas grasy.
Und vhen I heard der real nice vay,
Dhem peoples to my vife dhey say,
"More like his farder efery day,
I vas so proud like blazes.
Sometimes dcr comes a leetlc shquall
Dot's vhen der viudy vind vill gral,
Right in his leetle shtomack shmallDot's too bad for der baby
Und makes him sing at night so shveet,
Und gorrybarric he must ead,
Und I must chumb shbry on my feet.
To help dot leetle baby
He bull my nose und kicks my hair,
Und grawls me offer eferyvhere.
Und shlobbers me-but vot I care?
Dot vas my shmall young baby
Around my head dot leetle arm
Vas schquezin me so nice und varm-
Oh! may dhere nefer coom some harm
To dot shmall leetle baby
