What is it can equal a fond mother’s love
When sorrows come to your side
Intemperate jealousy between man and wife
Who is it that lays that aside?
Who is it that plays all day on the rug
With his potty his pride and his joy
Who is it brings fondness to everyone’s home
It’s Daddy’s baby boy.

He has lovely blue eyes and golden hair
Daddy’s baby boy
And ask of the Lord that he might spare
Daddy’s baby boy.

How happy you feel when your day’s work is done
And go home to your neat little cot
And you find at the doorstep your fond little son
With the laughter a child’s always got
He’ll scramble for sugar and upset your tea
Surprise you but never annoy
There’s no use denying that the king of the house
Is Daddy’s baby boy.

He has lovely blue eyes and golden hair
Daddy’s baby boy
And ask of the Lord that he might spare
Daddy’s baby boy.

Now years have passed over the boy turns to man
And Daddy has left the old home
To help his poor mother he tries all he can
To do so he crosses the foam
His picture is hung near her own on the wall
And as she looks on it with joy
The mother remembers he beautiful son
As Daddy’s baby boy.

He has lovely blue eyes and golden hair
Daddy’s baby boy
And ask of the Lord that he might spare
Daddy’s baby boy.
