Baby mine, don’t you cry

Baby mine, dry your eyes

Rest your head close to my heart

Never to part, baby mine

Little one, when you play

Don’t you mind what they say

Let those eyes sparkle and shine

Never a tear, baby of mine

If they knew sweet little you

They’d end up loving you too

All those same people who scold you

What they’d give, just for the right to hold you

From your head to your toes

You’re not much, goodness knows

But you’re so precious to me

Cute as can be, baby of mine

(Dumbo Soundtrack; circa 1941)

Sweet Cecilia is a year old

Crazy how time flies!
