8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in the key of F.
You ask me why I'm always teasing you,  You hate to have me call you Pretty Baby.
I really thought that I was pleasing you,  For you're just a baby to me.
Your cunning little dimples and your baby stare,  Your baby talk and baby walk and curly hair.
Your baby smile makes life worthwhile,  Your just as sweet as you can be.
Ev'rybody loves a baby, thats why I'm in love with you,  Pretty Baby,  Pretty Baby.
And I'd like to be your sister, brother, dad and mother too,  Pretty Baby,  Pretty Baby.
Won't you come and let me rock you in my cradle of love, and well cuddle all the time.
Oh I want a lovin' baby and it might as well be you,  Pretty Baby of mine.
Pretty Baby of mine.
