Verse:
Ros -y cheeks and turn'd up nose and curl -y hair,
I'm rav -ing 'bout my ba -by now.
Pret -ty lit -tle dim -ples here and dim -ples there,
Don't want to live with -out her, I love her good -ness knows.
I wrote a song a -bout her, And here's the way it goes:
 
Chorus:
Ba -by Face, You've got the cut -est lit -tle
Ba -by Face, There's not an -oth -er one could
Take your place, Ba -by Face,
My poor heart is jump -in, You sure have start -ed some -thin',
Ba -by Face, I'm up in heav -en when I'm
In your fond em -brace,
I did -n't need a shove, 'Cause I just fell in love,
With your pret -ty Ba -by Face.
