Oh how loudly, oh how clearly
we can hear you blow your top.
Baby boy, we love you dearly,
but this screaming has to stop!
If you’re going to wake up grouchy,
maybe you should stay asleep.
Your shrieks make my ears feel ouchy.
Can’t you pitch them low and deep?
Must you be so doggone noisy?
Please oh please, give it a rest.
Try to be a bit more joysy
when we pluck you from your nest.
You depend on us completely,
so you’d better treat us right.
If you must cry, do it sweetly,
or we may go out on strike.
“A crying baby is the best form of birth control.”
“A baby is an inestimable blessing and bother.” – Mark Twain
“I don’t know why they say ‘you have a baby.’ The baby has you. – Gallagher
