Verse:
You ask me why I'm al - ways teas -ing you,  You hate to have me call you Pret - ty Ba - by.
I real - ly thought that I was pleas - ing you,  For you're just a ba - by to me.
Your cun - ning lit-tle dimp - les and your ba - by stare,  Your ba -by talk and ba - by walk and cur - ly hair.
Your ba - by smile makes life worth - while,  Your just as sweet as you can be.
 
Chorus:
Ev - 'ry - bo - dy loves a ba - by, thats why I'm in love with you,  Pret - ty Ba - by,  Pret - ty Ba - by.
And I'd like to be your sis - ter, broth - er, dad and moth - er too,  Pret-ty Ba - by,  Pret - ty Ba - by.
Won't you come and let me rock you in my cra - dle of love, and well cud - dle all the time.
Oh I want a lov - in' ba - by and it might as well be you,  Pret - ty Ba - by of mine.
 
Ending:
Pret - ty Ba - by of mine.
