Rosy cheeks and turn'd up nose and curly hair,
I'm raving 'bout my baby now.
Pretty little dimples here and dimples there,
Don't want to live without her, I love her goodness knows.
I wrote a song about her, And here's the way it goes:
Baby Face, You've got the cutest little
Baby Face, There's not another one could
Take your place, Baby Face,
My poor heart is jumpin, You sure have started somethin',
Baby Face, I'm up in heaven when I'm
In your fond embrace,
I didn't need a shove, 'Cause I just fell in love,
With your pretty Baby Face.
