I'm mamma's little baby, and papa's baby, too;
My hair is short and curly, my eyes an- big and blue;
I five at home with mamma, and papa lives there, too;
I have a brother Jimmy, besides big sister Lu.

'Tis nice to be a baby, and have such pretty things;
Have mamma call me angel, and say I should have wings;
I'm sorry to grow older, become a great big miss;
I'm sure to be a woman is not so nice as this.

Being a mamma's blessing, being an auntie's joy,
Being a grandma's treasure, of home and heart the light;
Being a papa's precious, being an uncle's pet,
Being a grandpa's darling, a baby's life is bright.

I have a little dolly, I call her Baby Boo:
Her hair is long and golden, her eyes will shut up, too;
I have a little carriage, in which she goes to ride;
I've got to buy a boy doll, so she can be a bride.- Chorus. & Refrain.

I have a little cradle, to rock my dolly in;
I have a little kitchen, with kettles made of tin;
I have some pretty dishes, a tub to wash the clothes;
I hang them on the clothes-reel, and whirligig it goes.- Chorus. & Refrain.

I have a little Kitty, her claws are sharp and long;
I whip her with a feather, when she does something wrong;
I had a little birdie, one day it went away;
But grandpa says that Kitty did eat it up in play.-Chorus. & Refrain.

They've put me in long dresses, I wear a great big hat;
My picture's on the first page, I truly look like that;
My name is Alice Bertram, 'tis such a pretty name;
I think if I get married, I'll keep it just the same.- Chorus. & Refrain.

I love my darling mamma, I love my papa, too;
I love my brother Jimmy, I love big sister Lu;
I love my aunt and uncle, I love my Baby Boo;
I love grandpa and grandma, be good, And I'll love you. - Chorus. & Refrain.
