VERSE 01: You are young, but you seem older/You’ve scarcely started in your ‘teens,/For a child you seem much bolder/In love’s game you know “some ways and means”/I can’t think now,/Or figure how,/But I’ll allow/You’ve aged I vow./Oh! In this modern generation/They quickly grow,/How soon they show!
VERSE 02: Lots of little things I’m learning,/For instance, won’t you tell me this/Why is it I’m always yearning,/Just to know the meaning of a kiss?/Though I’m a child,/I’m not so wild./But tell me when/I’ll meet the men,/And! Is a hug so really lovely?/I’d like to know,/I wish you’d show!
CHORUS: A Baby, A Baby, A Baby in love/But maybe,/Yes maybe,/Some tricks you know of/You never look wise,/Just a childlike surprise,/But I am afraid of your eyes/You chatter and patter, as babies all do,/Amazed at, you’ve gazed at thing new/But any vampire naughty is mild as a dove,/Compared to a Baby in Love.
