1. How many miles to babyland?
Anyone can tell.
Up one flight, to your right, please to ring the bell.
What do they do in babyland?
Dream and wake and play.
Laugh and crow, fonder grow, jolly times have they.
2. What do they say in babyland? Why the oddest things.
Might as well try to tell what a birdie sings.
Who is the queen in baby land? Mother, kind and sweet,
And her love, born above, guides the little feet.
