I'd choose to be a baby,
A darling little flower,
Without a care or sorrow.
As I was in childhood's hour.
When ladies, heaven bless them,
They'd kiss me, and they'd vow
That they could almost eat me-
Why don't they do it now?

I'd choose to be a baby,
A darling little flower,
For the girls to kiss and cuddle me.
As they did in childhood's hour.

When I used to be a baby,
They'd to my cradle creep,
They'd kiss and hug and cuddle me,
Till I fell off to sleep.
Yes, they'd kiss and squeeze me, too,
Till I felt anyhow,
They'd even wash and dress me-
Why don't they do it now?-Chorus.

For pleased they were to nurse me.
They would take me on their lap.
And would stuff my little belly full
Of lollypop and pap.
They would chew me tops and bottoms,
And if I made a row,
They'd press me to their bosomsĀ­^hy don't they do it now?-Chorus.

When the ladies used to love me.
They would make me such nice clothes;
They would make me nice morocco shoes,
And wipe my little nose.
And when the snades of evening came,
And sleep came o'er my brow,
They said it's time to go to bed-
But they never say so now. - Chorus.
