My baby brother's fat, as fat
As any boy can be,
And he is just the sweetest duck
That ever you did see.



I count the dimples in his hands
A dozen times a-day,
And often wonder when he coos
What he would like to say.



I comb the down upon his head--
He hasn't any hair,--
It must be cold without, and yet
He never seems to care.



It is so nice to see him kick,
He has such pretty feet;
I think if we might eat him up
It would be quite a treat.
