Baby mine, don't you cry.
Baby mine, dry your eyes.
Rest your head close to my heart,
Never to part,
Baby of mine.

Little one when you play,
Don't you mind what they say.
Let those eyes sparkle and shine,
Never a tear,
Baby of mine.

If they knew sweet little you,
They'd end up loving you too.
All those same people who scold you
What they'd give just for the right to hold you.

From your head down to your toes,
You're not much, goodness knows.
But you're so precious to me,
Sweet as can be,
Baby of mine.

All those same people who scold you,
What they'd give just for the right to hold you.

From your head down to your toes
You're not much, goodness knows.
But you're so precious to me,
Sweet as can be,
Baby of mine.
Baby of mine

    I'm a 21 year old college student who still cries like a baby when this song plays. My mother and i would lay on the couch together watching dumbo when i was little and would cry together when this song would play. Now that i've grown and moved away, it makes me miss my mother so damn much. It makes me long to be able to go back in time just to be able to relive those precious moments i hold near and dear in my heart. I love you mom!

    My dad used to sing me this song while he'd hold me when i was little because dumbo was my favorite movie. He swing me back and forth dangling towards the ground like dumbo's mother did to him.

    It's more than just a lullabye. It's a message to her kid telling him/her to be you. Yes people will talk and tring to make you feel bad for being you. But if they only took a moment to get to know you they would not be saying/acting the way they are. "they'd end up loving you too.

    I always sing this song to my baby boy.. It calm him and make him sleep.. Wonderful song.. Other lullaby does work for him to go sleep.. But this one is magical... We both like this song.. Its already my habit to sing this song to him during sleep time.
