Do you hear the poppers pop
Popping the nursing bra-cup off
It is the instant-ready, just-add-baby
Food that's always there
When the beating of the fists
Indicates rising angriness
There is a life about to start
Clutching fingers near your heart.

Will you join in our crusade
Who will be strong and stand with me
Beyond the formula
Is there a world you long to see
Then join in the fun
That will give you the easy night's sleep.

Twas Feb'ry, and the winter clothes
Did fade and vanish in the shops
And all the north end of the globe
Wore swimsuits, and plastic flip-flops.

It is a fact, though little known
That babies cease to eat when cold
So that they're but little grown
When winter fashions are, like, so old.

So pull the woolly sweater down
And cover up that gaping draught!
Between the nappy and the gown
The gales will blow both fore and aft.

My baby's blue, I must admire -
It matches well the new Spring shades
And if she sits close to the fire
She should thaw out in a few days.

(Accidentally also posted to [livejournal.com profile] ailbhe, but who cares?)

Close your eyes, close the door,
You don't have to worry any more.
I'll be your baby tonight.

See the light, see the plate,
See all the food I just ate.
I'll be your baby tonight.

Well, that big ole spoon's gonna sail away,
We're gonna forget it.
That big, full spoon is gonna shine like the moon,
But we're gonna let it,
You won't regret it.

Kick your shoes off, do not fear,
Bring that bottle over here.
I'll be your baby tonight.

(She leaned way back in her comfy seat
And on the table she placed her feet.
In her hand was a wet rice cake
And it'll still be there when she's awake).
Sometimes its hard to be a baba
Getting all your love from just one mam
You'll have bad times
And she'll have loud times
Doing things that you don't understand
But if you love her you'll forgive her
Even though she's hard to understand
And if you love her
Oh be proud of her
'Cause after all she's just a mam

Stand on your mam
Give her two arms to cling to
And someone small to sing to
When you are cold and lonely
Stand on your mam
And tell the world you're hungry
Keep taking all the love you can
Stand on your mam
