DRU as I leev, most efry day
I laugh me wild to saw der way
My schmall young baby dries to play --
Dot funny leetle baby.

When I look of dem leetle toes,
Und saw dot funny leetle nose,
Und hear der way dot rooster crows --
I schmile like I vas grazy.

Sometimes der comes a leetle shquall,
Dots ven der vindy vind does crawl
Right in his leetle shtomach schmall --
Dot's too bad for der baby.

Dot makes him sing at night so shweet,
Und gorryparric he must eat,
Und I must chump shpry on my feet
To help dot leetle baby.

He bulls my nose und kicks my hair,
Und crawls me ofer everywhere,
Und schlobber me -- but what I care?
Dot vas my schmall young baby.

Around my head dot leetle arm
Vas shquozh me all so nice und warm.
Oh, may dere never come some harm
To dot schmall leetle baby.
