Verse:
My ba - by's eyes are blue, as blue as sum - mer skies,
My ba - by's hair is gold - en hued, the kind I i - dol - ize,
And when my ba - by's near, I'm hap - py all the while,
For there is noth - ing in this world just like my bab - by's smile.
 
Chorus:
For When My Ba - by Smiles At Me,
My heart goes roam - ing to par - a - dise,
And When My Ba - by Smiles At Me,
Theres such a won - der - ful light in her eyes,
The kind of light that means just love,
The kind of love that brings sweet har - mon - y,
I sigh, I cry, It's just a glimpse of Heav - en,
When My Ba - by Smiles At Me.
