Joy of a baby


Baby girls and baby boys
All they do is make a noise
Waking mothers up at night
Father wakes up in a fright
Then they see the baby cry
Both the parents heave a sigh
They give the baby milk to drink
And down with it they come to think
If only babies could sleep alright
And not wake up in the mid of the night
Daddy would then bring some day
Sweets for baby when at play
Mummy would then sing a song
For the joy of a baby how she longed.
