Sweetest little fellow
Everybody knows
Don't know what to call him
But he's mighty like a rose

Looking for his Mommy
With eyes so shiney blue
Making you think that heaven
Is coming close to you

When he's there a-sleeping
In his little place
Think I see the angels
Looking through the lace

When the dark is falling
When the shadows creep
Then they come on tiptoe
To kiss him in his sleep

Sweetest little fellow
Everybody knows
Don't know what to call him
But he's mighty like a rose

Looking for his Mommy
With eyes so shiney blue
Making you think that heaven
Is coming close to you
