Gus Kahn, 1916

You ask me why I'm always teasing you,
You hate to have me call you pretty baby;
I really thought that I was pleasing you,
For you're just a baby to me.
Your cunning little dimples and your baby stare,
Your baby talk and baby walk and curly hair;
And that is why I'm sure that I will
Always love you best of all.
Chorus:
Ev'rybody loves a baby
That's why I'm in love with you,
Pretty baby, pretty baby,
And I'd like to be your sister,
Brother, dad and mother too,
Pretty baby, pretty baby,
Won't you come and let me
Rock you in my cradle of love,
And we'll cuddle all the time.
Oh! I want a lovin' baby
And it might as well be you,
Pretty baby of mine.
2. Your mother says you were the cutest kid;
No wonder, dearie, that I'm wild about you,
And all the cunning things you said and did.
Why, I love to fondly recall,
And just like Peter Pan, it seems you'll always be
The same sweet, cunning, little baby dear to me.
And that is why I'm sure that I will
Always love you best of all.
Chorus:
