Home and the Baby
 

Home was never home before,
    Till the baby came.
Love no golden jewels wore,
    Till the baby came.
There was joy, but now it seems
Dreams were not the rosy dreams,
Sunbeams not such golden beams--
    Till the baby came.

Home was never really gay,
    Till the baby came.
I'd forgotten how to play,
    Till the baby came.
Smiles were never half so bright,
Troubles never half so light,
Worry never took to flight,
    Till the baby came.

Home was never half so blest,
    Till the baby came.
Lacking something that was best,
    Till the baby came.
Kisses were not half so sweet,
Love not really so complete,
Joy had never found our street
    Till the baby came.
