Lyrics

Sweetest little fellow everybody knows
Don’t know what to call him but
he’s mighty like a rose
Looking at his mammy with eyes
so shiny blue
Makes you think that heav’n is coming
close to you.

When he’s there a’sleepin’ in his little place
Think I see the angels looking through
the lace.
When the dark is fallin’ when the
shadows creep
Then they comes on tip-toe 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 at his mammy with eyes so
shiny blue
Makes you think that heav’n is coming
close to you.
