MAMMA'S BABY BOY.
Copyright, 1889, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Words by George Cooper. Music by Charles E. Pratt.
Precious little jewel, locks of pretty gold,
Baby's face forever in my heart I hold;
Home would be so lonely if my baby pet
Had not brought the sunshine, " sweetest baby yet.
Tiny, rosy toes, merry, dimpled chin,
Mouth just like a rose, one wee tooth therein;
Lovely lily hands, eyes that beam with joy,
Heart's delight and diamond bright, that's mamma's baby boy.
"When the birdies slumber baby goes to sleep,
Angels all the night long watch above him keep;
When the birdies waken baby wakens, too,
What is sweeter music than my baby's "coo? " -Chorus.
Fairer than the rosebuds, purer than the snow,
Brighter than the sunshine, mother loves him so;
Little glimpse of heaven sent our hearts to cheer,
All the world to mamma, darling baby dear.-Chorus.
