Oh, Baby


Baby, oh, baby, 
the places you’ll go! 
The worlds you will visit! 
The friends you will know!

The horn-tooting apes
from the Jungles of Jorn
will hoot a big toot 
on the day you are born.

While a bird flying high
from far off in Katroo
will sing on the wing, 
“Happy Birthday to you!”
You’ll find that this world’s
a great place to begin, 
but it could use some help– 
which is where you come in.

So now, as my voice
burple-urps in your ear-
with a bump-thumpy sound
that is not very clear- 
the words I am saying
you hear in your heart, 
and know that I wish you
the very best start. 

It’s a scrumptulous world
and its ready to greet you.
And as for myself… 

I can’t wait to meet you!
