Lyrics for Cheeks of Rose

Cheeks of rose, tiny toes,
has our little baby.
Eyes of blue, fingers too,
Cunning all as may be.

Mouth so fair, skin so clear,
just as soft as may be.
Bony eyes, looking wise,
Such a precious baby.

Thee I love, sweetest dove,
darling little baby.
While I live, thee I’ll give
Kisses warm as may be.

Crow and play all the day,
happy little baby.
May your life, free from strife,
Pure as ’tis today be
