You Must Have Been
a Beautiful Baby
 
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!
 
An' when it came to winning blue ribbons,
you must have shown the other kids how . . .
I can see the judge's 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 . . .
 
< instrumental >
 
Does your dad appreciate
that you are merely great?
Does your mother realize
you're such a treat for the eyes? 
 
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!
 
An' when it came to winning blue ribbons,
you must have shown the other kids how . . .
I can see the judge's 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 . . . ( she's a cutie! )
baby look at you now . . .
