My Baby Betty Lou:

I have a little daughter,

her name is Betty Lou,

I’d love to see her sit down,

and take off her shoe.

She is the youngest of my four,

A darling little tot,

but she simply will refuse

to use her pretty little pot.

She says, ‘Oh Mamma Dear, I

’m much a baby yet,

forgive me please if all at once,

you’ll find me soaken wet’.

She has blonde hair and a dark brown eyes,

She has a cute smile and seldom cries.

What mother wouldn’t be proud of a baby like her.

She sleeps like a kitten with a contented purr.

-Ester Yarnall (Written 1942)
