"Mighty Like a Rose" as written by Ethelbert Woodbridge Nevin and Frank L. Stanton....
Sweetest little fellow, everybody knows
Don't know what to call him but he's mighty like a rose
Lookin' at his mammy with eyes so shiny blue
Make you think that heaven is comin' close to you

When he's there sleepin' in his little place
Think I see angels lookin' through the lace
When the dark and fallin', when the shadows creep
Then they comes on tiptoe 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
Lookin' at his mammy with eyes so shiny blue
Make you think that heaven is comin' close to you

When the dark and fallin', when the shadows creep
Then they comes on tiptoe 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
Lookin' at his mammy with eyes so shiny blue
Make you think that heaven is comin' close to you
