You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby    (1938)

Does your mother realize,
The stork delivered quite a prize,
The day he left you on the fam'ly tree?
Does your dad appreciate,
That you are merely super great,
The miracle of any century!
If they don't, just send them both to me.

You must have been a beautiful baby,
You must have been a wonderful child.
When, you were only startin'
To go to kindergarten,
I bet you drove the little boys wild.

And when it came to winning blue ribbons,
You must have shown the other kids how.
I can see the judges' eyes
As they handed you the prize,
I bet you made the cutest bow.

Oh! You must have been a beautiful baby,
'cause, baby, look at you now.
