Copyright, 1881, by Wm. A. Pond & Co.
Written and sung by Edward Harrigan.

Early in de morning when de sun do rise,
Lying on a corn-cob bed,
Baby rolling over, hazel colored eyes,
Little kinkey, wooly head;
Mammy is a dozing, dreaming of de bliss,
I'm thinking of de day a-coming on;
Oh, come along, my cherub, give your pop a kiss,
Bless the day that he was born.

Hello! Bab-by, here's your Dad-dy;
Up and down he goes!
You black picaninny from old Virginny,-
Goodness, how she grows!
Black picaninny from old Virginny,-
Goodness, how she grows!

Buy a little wagon, roll de Bab-by out,
Let him swallow good, fresh air,
Feed him on bananas, neber have de gout,-
Yellow ribbon in his hair;
Jonah is his namesake, living in de whale,
A floating 'roun' de ocean in a storm;
Oh, shouting happy neighbors, haila, haila, hail!
Bless the day that he was born.-Chorus.

Buy him little slippers, cover up his toes,
Keep him from de frost and cold,
Sit him by de hot fire, don't you freeze his nose,
Only twenty-two months old;
Bring him up a Baptist, make him go to church,
Oh, rare him like a possum on a farm;
Oh, give him plenty gum drops, better than the birch,
Bless the day that he was born.-Chorus.
